A Review of the independent media approach?


Premier Najib Razak announced his new commitment to media freedom and vibrancy on April 6, 2009.

Today, the Prime Minister’s Office barred a reporter and a photographer from Chinese online news daily Merdeka Review from covering Najib’s announcement of the new cabinet line-up in Putrajaya this afternoon. See here and here.

This blatant contradiction may not augur well for media freedom and independence in the country.

    Mus, I think we really shouldn’t be surprised. The only thing consistent about these guys is their inconsistency (and, of course, their blatant lies). Indeed, time and again it’s all just spin. What they and their pathetic lackeys in the mainstream media – and some of their bloggers who fancy themselves as the ‘rock’ of Gibraltar – don’t seem to understand is that the people now know its spin and just won’t take the spin anymore. I’d suggest you put up Dylan’s ‘The times they are a-changing’ for these jerks if it weren’t for the fact that it’d all just go over their brainless heads.

    Ini semua retorik sahaja. Dulu,kini dan selamanya hanya kelentong sahaja. PM yang dulu pun sama, Che Det dengan BCA, Pak Lah dengan modal Insan. Najib dengan 1 Malaysia. Orang bodoh sahaja yang percaya dengan mereka ini. Rakyat jangan mudah lupa.
