China Press may face suspension...

Today, they published news that the Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan has tendered his resignation letter. Tomorrow, other newspapers might come up with headlines such as 'Najib resigns!' or 'Anwar screws his driver' or 'Muhyidin asks Najib to step down' or things like that.

Soon, they will get daring enough with headlines 'The King asks Najib to quit' or 'Hisham to challenge Muhyidin in next Umno elections' or 'Malaysia plans to attack Singapore' or 'Maybank to close shop'.

If we allow them to go overboard, the whole country will be upside down. However, when we told them to stop, they said the government is very tolerance and takes up whatever the newspapers published, although it was based on their unfounded evidence.

So, if I am the Home Minister, I will either revoke the China Press printing permit or suspend its publication indefinitely (read h e r e). Why? I wont let such speculative news to jeopardise the dignity of the person, the police force and the government. It will also lead to bad implication among foreign Press that the Malaysian government can hire and fire whoever they wish, anytime, anywhere.

And I personally believe the Home Minister is considering a tough action against the newspaper. He got to set a precedent here as some editors of the local newspapers are finding a 'reporting leeway' under Najib's administration. Remember The Star and Al Islam?

I dont know what has been the China Press motive but of late, the newspaper seems to get more discontented with the government. Maybe they dont like Musa, Najib, Hisham or the government. Whatever it is, its up to its editor-in-chief to answer KDN sec-gen Mahmood Adam.

The Star used to be suspended in the 1980s. I forgot the exact date but it was something about this also laaaa....(Also read what Big Dog comments).

THIS IS WHAT I CALL AS MAKING AN UNNECESSARY SENTIMENT.

THE CHINESE LANGUAGE NEWSPAPERS THOUGHT THE GOVT DOES NOT MONITOR NEWS THEY CARRY EVERYDAY. THEY THOUGHT NO MALAYS CAN SPEAK AND TRANSLATE THE PAGES.

DURING DR MAHATHIR'S ERA, HE GOT COPIES OF ALL LOCAL PUBLICATIONS QUITE EARLY IN THE MORNING, TOGETHER WITH ITS TRANSLATED VERSION. AND THATS HOW NOBODY DARED TO FOOL AROUND WITH SENTIMENTS THEN.

UNDER NAJIB'S TIME, THING ARE DIFFERENT. MAYBE BECAUSE OF HIS 1MALAYSIA, NEWSMAKERS TOOK IT FOR GRANTED THE CLEAR INTENTION OF THE GOVT THAT IT WANTS ALL SECTORS TO COLLABORATE IN BRNGING ABOUT PEACE AND STABILITY TO THE COUNTRY.

CHINA PRESS TOOK IT FOR GRANTED BY TESTING THE HOME MINISTRY WITH THIS KIND OF UNCALLED PROPAGANDA. FOR WHAT REASON, NOBODY KNOWS BUT THEY MIGHT HABOR A BAD INTENTION TOWARDS TAN SRI MUSA.

THINGS NEED TO BE CORRECTED. HISHAM MUST ACT ACCORDINGLY OR MORE NEWS OF SIMILAR PROPAGANDA WILL BE PUBLISHED

bujai, u are not in the position to punish china press. leave it to the home ministry.

KIM jr said...

i dont see anything is wrong with that kind of news? speculation is part of news.

so, why must hishamuddin jumped unnecessarily?

its the same speculation if othet newspapers say that ong tee keat will not defend his title in mca!

i dont understand it. is there any barring for such news? the igp or the home minister can always deny it rather than punishing the newspaper.

come on guys! there is nothing wrong with such news!

sir,

are you proposing for the government to close down the china press by revoking its licence?

you must be crazy!

yamseng said...

sudah jadi kebiasaan bagi akhbar berbahasa cina mensensasikan sesuatu, tidak kira apa bidang sekalipun.

saya setuju agar tindakan tegas dikenakan.

jika tidak, banyak lagi berita karut-marut akan diterbitkannya. ini bukannya kebebasan akhbar namanya.

ini adalah perbuatan yang mengkhianati kepercayaan kerajaan dalam meluluskan permit penerbitannya

sudah tiba masanya kerajaan mengkaji semula DOs and DONTs bagi akhbar. kebebasan akhbar di malaysia bukan bermakna mereka boleh menyiarkan apa saja berita sensasi yang boleh menjejaskan keselamatan negara dan perpaduan kaum.

pemantauan juga mesti dibuat terhadap laman blog kerana laman blog ini amat bebas berbohong dan memfitnah sesuka hati mereka.

mungkin the china press bukan satu-satunya akhbar yang sedikit terikut-ikut dengan perkembangan tren penulisan blog hari ini. dalam erti kata lain, mereka sendiri mungkin sedar tidak ada tindakan keras diambil ke atas penulis blog yang melampau, kecuali tindakan satu lawan satu di antara penulis dan orang yang difitnah atau dicerca.

kerajaan perlu tegas bukan saja ke atas akhbar tetapi juga laman blog. oleh kerana laman blog makin popular berbanding akhbar kerana kecepatannya membuat liputan dan ulasan, laman blog mesti diwajibkan lebih bertanggungjawab.

kesalahan china press pada hemat saya amat kecil dan tidak memerlukan lesennya ditarik balik atau digantung, berbanding the star tempoh hari

maybe they dont like musa hasan. that's why la.

or maybe musa hasan doesnt like china press... hehehehe

old jaguar said...

speculative reporting is only good if it brings about fresh sentiments on the stock market as it will push up the composite index.

speculative reporting on politics is allowed only to a certain extent if it doesnt stir stability dan affect the dignity of a person or a leader.

in china press context of speculative reporting, they were too direct by saying that musa has resigned. should they said something like 'musa is believed to have resign....', then they would be in a save situation.

afterall, speculative news are published by almost all newspapers almost everyday...

FREEDOM OF THE PRESS MUST BE OBSERVED. THE CHINA PRESS WAS JUST SPECULATING, BASED ON INFOS. IT BRINGS NO HARM. SO, U UMNO STOOGE PLSE DONT MAKE IT WORSE

i think it will be sufficient if china press publish an open apology to tan sri musa.

no point to suspend its publication

hisham wont dare to suspend china press la bro.

leopard said...

what is so serious about the speculation?

it caused no damage, except for contemplations among malaysians.

this is normal for any newspaper in the country.

if the govt imposes a blackout on china press, then they are being bias!

YOU ARE MAD, BUJAI!

HOW COULD U SUGGEST FOR CHINA PRESS BE SUSPENDED?

U SURE ARE AM IDIOT!

semut api said...

aku setuju dengan kidol.

walaupun kerajaan dah bagi showcause pada china press, suruh je tan sri musa hasan saman suatkahar tu. berani buat, berani la tanggung.

saman je setengah bilion... dah dapat nanti, tan sri musa boleh bagi aku dan kidol komisyen, betul tak tan sri?

yes, hisham must set a precedent by imposing a ban on china press.

montoya said...

cukup la bagi amaran je. the star hari tu lagi berat kesalahannya, menghina islam dan undang2 syariah.

ini pasal spekulasi musa resign pun nak besar2kan. takyah la.

setiap akhbar ada buat salah. ini kes kecik je, bang!

how now Jai, will you now apologise to China Press? Now that Hisham has confirmed that there will be changes within police brass and that he knows identity of IGP?
