Rumors Have It?

Bloggers too to be blamed for rumours: PM

The Borneo Post Press, Tuesday (8th July 2008)

KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi wants bloggers to stop speculating and spreading rumours on the Internet as this is another cause of the unsettled political situation in the country.

“I want to tell the blogs to stop all these as they are also responsible for what has happened. The best thing they could do is to stop,” he told reporters after holding several bilateral meetings on the sidelines of the 6th D-8 Heads of Government Summit here yesterday.

The summit proper of the eight Developing Islamic Nations (D-8) is scheduled to begin in the federal capital today.

The prime minister was commenting on the current political situation in the country, which seemed unsettled since the last general election in March.

Yesterday Abdullah said he was aware that the people were fed up with the political bickering that is going on in the country and pledged to give priority to the needs of the people.

“Slandering has become more rampant. One no longer cares whether the accusations are true or otherwise,” Abdullah told Bernama on Sunday.

He said this in reaction to a front page report by an English language daily on Sunday which highlighted the reaction of the people and community leaders over the political exchanges in the past few months.

“Whatever the truth, the truth will come out…don’t worry about it,” Abdullah said yesterday.

Asked how the government intended to stop these rumours and allegations on the Internet, he said: “When the truth comes out, all these will stop, we will make sure of that.” — Bernama


I did not know her. I swear in the name of Allah. I did not sodomized him. I will prove that I did not.

The Bloggers are blamed to spread rumors. By then, the lost 5 states to opposition are rumors? The Raja Petra detention for doing nothing is rumors? How about those news in main stream media? They (mainstream media) are now busying with Nikko in Peang and badly blame Guan Eng for loosing the investors. Before, Selangor was blamed for rearing pig inside the town. Now the “Barisan Nasional” is giving sweet to Nik Aziz by building east peninsular coast biggest oil tank.

In Perak, the logging activity could not be done at certain place because it will bring up to water pollution problem. But, the illegal logging at the Orang Asli villages was made legal.

We have been fed by liars and mind manipulation by the printed media and TV that belong to Barisan Nasional. As I watched news last night, Najib was standing beside Badawi as hi smiled at Badawi warning. Actually, there are no rumors in blogs. Tun Mahathir does not spread rumor in his blog. Yes, it is all about covering the cruelness of murders and rapers. Now they are save as Prime Minister has used police and laws to shut the people’s mouth. The best thing he can do is to clean the government and not blaming innocent bloggers.
