After threatening and attempting to prosecute the bloggers, the authority now turns its focus on the mass media, warning them not to publicise the issues (those considered anti-government) raised by bloggers.
No people would want to wash their dirty linens in public, nor would they dare to reveal what have been hidden under their carpet, let alone a government which professes to say one thing and do exactly the opposite without any qualm or embarrassment.
One would have thought that such draconic measure of shutting up the citizens could only happen in an autocratic or a communist regime, and certainly not in a democratic nation.
That said, the bloggers themselves should also exercise utmost control and restraint, and not going to the extreme of wild accusations without any basis of evidence. Meantime, the onus is on the editors to scrutinise the bloggers' comments carefully before publishing.
Come to think of it, if our government is doing the right thing, why should it be afraid of what the citizens say?
