MSM Boycott : A reader’s suggestion to hit BN companies where it hurts

Posted on March 28, 2008




J sent in the suggestion below. I thought it merited serious consideration.


I am writing in response to your call to boycott the local newspapers.

Since the end of last year, I have stopped subscribing to any local newspapers. However, even if everyone were to boycott the MSM, I believe that this would not be enough.

The point of a boycott is to punish the newspapers for spreading lies. The boycott would deprive them of profits and put a halt to the propagation of the newspapers. The further boycott by the advertisers would hurt them even more. Nevertheless, this is a corrupt government that we are dealing with who would stop at nothing to see their propaganda go through including diverting public funds to the newspapers to ensure publication continues.

Therefore, it is imperative that we call for a boycott of not only the newspapers  and TV stations, but all BN owned businesses and companies. This would deplete their coffers faster. Without money, their efforts to smear and discredit the others, who are truly working towards a better Malaysia, cannot continue.

I urge you to consider what I have said here.

I am currently compiling a list of companies and businesses owned by these goons. Hopefully, soon I will have enough on my list to publish for the public to take action against them. Smaller companies will feel the effects sooner than the larger public listed companies.

Nevertheless, the effects will soon be felt by all if we persist and fight hard to bring down the liars.
