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

How can STAR belittle Merdeka. Bloody STAR.


Of late I’m really enraged by the Star. They don’t seem to want us to have a focal point and driving us further and further apart.

But today was the nail in the coffin. STAR did not cover the merdeka news as main news. Not even second page or third page. Its covered in page 20 onwards. The STAR is too much.

They did once before giving our king maiden parliamentary speech as a back page. Putting other unknown personality against our king.

This is a deliberate agenda by STAR. They will drive us apart further. Central to this is to downplay our strong tradition and culture and focus more on their so call “left wing” agenda. This must stop.

There is no harm to highlight merdeka. So what if that the merdeka was obtained by tunku, Umno and BN. Its a historical fact. Our nation and constitution is founded on this. Our liberty and freedom are derived from this. Simply because STAR has become more DAP/ Chinese it does derogate the fact.

So for STAR not to cover the national parade as main news, they are wholly wrong and to me putting us deeper into an unreturned polarization. Our merdeka is something to cherish. Tak boleh dipermainkan. They belittling our nation must be condemned. No two ways.

Ps. The front page of a merdeka ad does not count and is a further insult. They put it there coz someone sponsored it. If not all will be on page 20 onwards. Really kurang ajar.

  2. For objective news and stories, I don’t read or watch any of our Mainstream Media, both print or electronic. So, I cannot say much here perhaps just to say that Malaysia is a free and democratic country with free press & mass media. They have licenses to operate and if they go against the laws or the terms of their licenses, call them up for explanation & if they don’t comply or resist, just take away their licenses – that’s the job of the authorities. As private individuals, we are free to lodge the necessary police reports if necessary.
