Freedom of the Press in Malaysia

We hear about freedom of the press in Malaysia being talked about since I can remember. Due to unknown reasons, Malaysia doesn’t give total freedom to the press or mass media with stories being blacked out from international editions, news being censored etc etc.

It’s all said and done to ‘protect Malaysians’.  This post has nothing to do with politics, mind you.

It has everything to do with the newspaper below….

Now tell me, with such a headline, can national integration actually be a success?

I’m angered by how such headline can actually make a headline in Malaysian mass media when this only serves to makes other’s look down on Sarawakians, and not mentioning the Penans.

It’s bad enough that those ‘over the sea’ already look down on us since decades, and now this? Want to influence the ‘younger minds’ too eyh?

This is why I think, and I agree when Larry Sng said “Only Sarawakians know what’s best for our people.“.

If you didn’t know, the tabloid paper above is Semenanjung based and they have expanded to Sarawak about a year or so ago.

However, with such headlines they probably should stay where they are based because if there is anything I’d like banned or removed from the mass media, it would be news depicting Sarawakians in such a manner, as in making people look down on us.
