Coming to terms with the truth. Hishammuddin Hussein, the Umno Youth leader and Education Minister, in his policy speech at the Umno Youth assembly yesterday:
“The community of bloggers is very active in our country today and I believe that many of them are quite responsible and give high quality information. Such (contributions to the country’s) development should be looked at positively, as part of the democratisation of information in the world and of cyberspace."
It was just a matter to time before the keris man would come to terms with the blogging truth; he's too smart not to see it. [read the Star's With Freedom comes responsibility]
p.s. Talk about freedom and responsibility, did any of you see any news article on the police report lodged against the Prime Minister yesterday in any of the government-linked newspapers today? Nope? Not even in their on-line editions?
I rest my case.
