It also reported that Opposition leaders failed to influence the people at large to protest against the government.
And so on, and on, the yarn spins…(Bernama).
Earlier, I said: Hello, Bernama!
It’s nice to know you have covered Sunday’s fuel hike rally at Kelana Jaya. But there are a few confusing statements in your report. Would you care to clarify?
We’d like to know who are those “extremist organisations” who attended the fuel hike rally in Kelana Jaya yesterday?
I wonder why you singled out the Hindu Rights Action Group (HINDRAF).
Other newspapers report that there was a carnival like air during the gathering. It’s great to know that ‘extremist organisations” can organise carnivals, too, though you mentioned none of this. Your report had no color!
Oh, oh..sorry, you did mention color, when you said that many of the participants wore red.
Then you made a damning accusation.
Who are those participants at the rally – “some of whom were seen to be aggressive” – did you mean the Rock band singer who showed his butt, or those who tried to shove his butt out of the show?
You also made the event look like it had started a war zone.
Hahaha! I have friends living in Kelana Jaya and I can swear they did not “lock” themselves at home for fear of their safety. So who do you mean?
You said there was a presence of a large number of “un-identified” persons around the area. If they were ‘unidentified’, how could you recognise them?
There was reportedly many plain clothes policemen and army personnel around the area.
Surely they must be the ones to frighten off the people, don’t you think so?
Oh, there were complaints about haphazard parking? But that happens almost everywhere – markets, schools, malls, and a host of other places. But it’s a BIG crime, isn’t it?
A crime to warrant army personnel survelling the area? Wow.
And what about the Sedition Act threat on speakers of the rally? You almost made me feel like the bloody lot deserve it, don’t they?
I’d like to rebuke you for your highly irresponsible report – labelling, over-generalisation, pro-government, and lacking journalistic ethics, but I shall save my breath.
You are after all not a newspaper. Just a Barisan Nasional mouth-piece. I wasted enough time laughing at you.
