Reading this kind of statement from a former infomation chief makes me sick : Radio’s freedom has negative impact on the nation, says Zam.
What has negative impact on the nation is the kind of restrictions the Government has on all kinds of media, and on its citizens, moron.
It’s the kind of policies we have, and the things politicians utter that attracts such bad impressions on the country. Not to mention sham trials and political manipulation to bring one’s enemy down.
Not freedom of any kind. It’s also the kind of threats on writers that bring negative impact and image to the country like the Home Ministry’s recent show cause letter to the Star’s P Gunasegaran on his ‘canning’ article. He really got a whipping in return!
How could a moron understand these things?
That freedom is not the problem. The problem is power in the hands of a minority and the abuse of that power that leads to all kinds of negative impact on the nation!
