What kind of attention, Najib Tun Razak?
Which internet websites and blogs?
Critical ones or lovey-dovey ones?
Accurate information on what?
The birds and bees?
Who decides accurate information?
How do you wish to “manage” the new media?
ISA, OSA and Sedition Law?
You are not ‘tech savvy’? But of course!
(Bernama) — Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said today the government would give more attention to the non-conventional media of Internet websites and blogs to ensure that the people receive accurate information.
This was most necessary as the impact of this so-called new media on the people was evident in the last general election, he said during a question-and-answer session at the Asia Media Summit 2008, here.
Najib earlier read out the keynote address of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi at the event.
“We will certainly introduce the new dimension in terms of winning over public opinion. One of the aspects that perhaps we have overlooked is how to manage the new media.
“I have to admit, frankly, that we have underestimated their role and I have to admit that we are not ‘tech savvy’ to tackle this and utilise the impact of the new technology,” he said.
