The last days of a government out of touch with the people

Posted on September 22, 2008


NST online reported yesterday that Radio24, a radio station run by a ministry agency, was being investigated for having allegedly gone on the air on a sensitive issue.

The sensitive issue?

Radio24 ran an interactive programme, “Which is more important, the transition of power from Pak Lah (Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi) to Datuk Seri Najib Razak or a reduction in the fuel price?”, on the air.

And Shabery, one of the few UMNO fellas who I , mistakenly it would seem, thought had some substance, had this to say of the offending programme :

“As a government radio station, it should not be misused by anyone, including to disseminate matters negative to society and contrary to government policies”

This is sensitive and cannot be  discussed by the rakyat?
