I read with interest Dawud's comments in his letter Malaysiakini 'a poison' for country.
I had a good laugh. Lies and distortions in malaysiakini, he says. I doubt it. Far from it. Perhaps Dawud refuses to face the reality of what malaysiakini offers. It is the only medium in the country that has gained some measure of respect and fair play unlike the mainstream media which is subject to in-house censorship and slanted to suit the ruling elite.
I should know because I have been witness to it all the time. If Dawud had any measure of respect, he should consider examining the mainstream media before passing judgement on malaysiakini and calling it 'poison'.
I am sure he is aware of the practices of the mainstream media but is just an apologist for them. And there were many like him during the Nazi era and just before the Iranian revolution where the mainstream media ignored everything resulting in the ruling elite losing touch with reality. That might be repeated in Malaysia someday - soon.
