The right of reply

Enough is enough. People who proclaim to fight for freedom of expression and free media but censors other's legitimate reply based on their whims and fancy, must realise that on the internet, they cannot suppress peoples' legitimate right to reply and express contrarian views. This blog welcomes all views. ~ Ellese

I can easily use this article and replace mainstream media with alternative media like TMI and BN with PR. The depth of logic of Bakri in this article is astoundingly low. The fact that he was selective in condemning mainstream media shows how partial he is. To most Malaysians free media is when they publishes your view and censor contrarion views. These media without conscience mix facts with their selective views to discolor the facts. Journalists including pro pr media are the same without exception. For example TMI went to town day in day out condemning bn’s deficit budget and huge hands out as making our country bankcrupt. But when PR proposed similar deficit budget and billion dollar hands out it became very commendable. We need ethical balance and objective media. We must educate public with US SPJ ethical standards. We ask MSM and AM to report truth and raw facts. We decide what to conclude.

  1. Dear Ellese,

    I am glad you took the route of having your own blog. Well, you forgot to invite most of the commentators over.

    Quote: “Enough is enough. People who proclaim to fight for freedom of expression…. bla bla bla… ”
    >> Does it include vulgarity and names calling. 🙂

    Some of your “die hard supporters” loves to do name calling. They dying to do so.

    Will comment when necessary only.

    Salam.

    • Welcome Wave.

      To put the record straight, I’ve made reference of this blog at the relevant blogs but some as usual have censored even the reference to this blog. Why are they so afraid of contrarion views I dont know.

      On the limits of the blog, please see “about this blog” on the limits of this blog. I will not condone anything against the law. You already know this.

      On vulgarities and name calling you also know my position. I dont condone nor like it. You know those who are against my write have always resorted to name calling when unable to reply. And you know that I can reply in kind.

      Welcome again wave.

  2. Ellesse,

    So this is where you have disappeared to?

    Well done.

    Maybe u may want to write ur own articles too?

    • Thanks. I will do a combination of reblogging and my own write. I have written a couple of writes already which are on the same issues we’ved argued before. The issues seem to be the same but will try to crystalize the thoughts here whenever I can.

      Anyway welcome to the blog.
