It is with pride when the two bloggers flanked by more bloggers and would-be bloggers walked into the courts today for round 1 of the defamation suit between the media giant and the bloggers.
From different background and different races, the bloggers represent the aspiration of many who could turn up in court to provide moral support to the bloggers.
And if this is the beginning, the future is surely brighter if other well-known bloggers with present an past connections can throw in their support, even morally, to the two. Bloggers like Lim of DAP, Malaysia today, A kadir Jasin to mention a few will even thing up.
What the bloggers wrote and will continue writing are not pluck off from the dark room of Putrajaya. It should be given the chance to provide the other side of the coins. After all, how far can the bloggers reach? Unless, of course, if someone up there is not happy with the scoop after scoop that rattles the weak heart.
Why the need for PM to conduct a press conference on the VVIP plane? Exerpts from A Kadir' blog "
[UPDATE, Jan 29] –THE Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, confirmed that an Airbus A319 Corporate Jet is being made available to the country’s VVIPs, including the King.
But according to The Star newspaper’s short message service (SMS), the PM said the Government did not buy the plane but instead leased it.
Whether the Government is buying the jet or is leasing it, the cost of leasing and operating it will still have to be shouldered by the taxpayers.
It is understood that the US$50-million plus aircraft is bought by Penerbangan Malaysia Berhad (PMB), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Khazanah Nasional Berhad. PMB has a leasing arm. It owns all the aircraft operated by Malaysia Airlines Berhad (Mas)."
And that is 1 truth. The truth is, the taxpayers' monies are used by a Govt related company to purchase the plane. The truth is, it will add to the existing stable of fleet of airplanes, the truth is, it was not publicly announce, the truth is is it necessary? the truth is why the purchase done in 2003? If it is for the Agung's use, the new Agung was installed in 2006.From NST "Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said the voters "knew better", judging from the 5,857 win margin, which more than doubled the majority obtained in the last general election." And the truth? The truth is, it is a 1 sided affair because BN is against the independent candidate who can't even round up election agents, the truth is the whole BN machinery is camped in Batu Talam during the campaigning period, the truth is the same BN election workers can be better diverted to Batu Pahat to help in flood relief centres, the truth is why KJ did not make any impact in Batu Talam? the truth is the voters obtained by the ruling party is not reflective of the actual support from the masses, the truth is , call for an early GE and see the support from the public..
And that is the truth...Till then...G'nite M'sia...wherever u are...
