Thanks, TV Smith, for the alert. Never mind if there's no You Tube link, Dr Chua Soi Lek's blog is bound to draw a lot of interest.
Just read his latest posting, Media Freedom:"The time has come for political party to re-look at its share holdings in the mainstream media and this includes MCA-controlled The Star newspaper and also the share holding in Nanyang press ... so that the media is able to regain its freedom."Won't you agree?
Umno, too, holds too much interest in the traditional media. NST, Berita Harian and Utusan Malaysia are some of the newspapers controlled by Umno. As such, there are Umno politicians and their press attaches who tend to pull ranks with the Editors. And when you have Editors who are not so brave and who think they have too much to lose, newspapers turn into party newsletters.
p.s. Dr Chua blogs at www.drchua9.blogspot.com. Yep, I'm wondering about that figure 9, too, but in any case, welcome to the blog world, Doc! Read also TV Smith's Post-Apocalypse Bloggers.
