Baik Baca Mangga

Suratkhabar sekarang dah takleh percaya. Korang baca link ni, then korang akan rasa macam tak bermakna dah baca paper hari hari.

Utk yg malas nak klik. Baca jer bawah ni.

Fu-ed by The Star

The Fu Ah Kiow snafu lingers on in The Star.

At first, I was trying to find the coherence between the headline and the content of the Letter to the Editor published yesterday, which baffled me.

Ablogger friend alerted me to the same letter, sharing the same baffled view as mine. Later last night, reader Wang Min Yen, who is also the author of the letter to The Star wrote me this:

Jeff, help!!! I have been defamed!!!

I know it's naive of me to think that the Star would publish my letter the way it should look, but I am still upset!!! The Star put words into my mouth

Wang also sent me the original Letter to the Editor:

Dear Sir,

I refer to the article "Government looking at gaps in printing Act" published in The Star on 27 July 2006, where Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Fu Ah Kiow was reported as saying that the government will study if the Printing Presses and Publications Act 1984 (PPPA) should be amended to include the Internet.

I would like to commend Datuk Fu for noticing that Internet does not come under the supervision of his Ministry.

Yet I am confused as the PPPA is governed by his Ministry.

By announcing that the government wants to consider amending the PPPA to include the Internet, is he suggesting that the government is considering taking Internet out of the purview of Ministry of Energy, Communications and Multimedia?

If that is the case, then Datuk Fu must make sure that the government is also studying the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 (CMA).

The government must make sure that if PPPA is amended to include the Internet, then Section 3(3) of the CMA which currently reads "[n]othing in this Act shall be construed as permitting the censorship of the Internet" has to be deleted.

The government also has to announce to all foreign investors who have bought or are planning to buy our story of the Multimedia Super Corridor that we have reneged on our promise.

Let's not do it through the back door. We are polite people.

Wang Min Yen

I think should the Printing Presses and Publication Act 1984 stay it must be due to the fact that the mainstream papers are so prone of misquoting people all and sundry.

For example, the papers have been misquoting Samy Vellu over the MRR II; and they have been misquoting Fu Ah Kiow over Internet control -- and it has made MOI Zainuddin Maidin to even support what Fu had supposedly retracted.

Now they even editorialise Letter to Editor to make the reader say what he didn't say.

So it justifies why the government wanted to tighten the PPPA as the papers have made Ministers and readers all look so stupid.

Betul ker semua benda yg diorang publish ni, atau semuanya dah diedit?

Baik baca majalah Mangga, sebab dah tau semua dlm tu gossip.
