It is easy to say 'boycott MSM' but living in a country and not knowing what is happening isn't good for our knowledge before we form our opinions. So, despite knowing the propaganda being spread through mainstream media by BN, I normally watch Nightline on TV3. But last night was tortuous, having to listening to Najib's cheap shots at Pakatan and Anwar in particular. It was blatant unfair campaigning using government machinery, well before the announcement of a date for the GE, and definitely not within campaign period as there is none yet. What are the Election Commissioners doing with such unfair and overt actions by the incumbent PM and DPM?
How should we judge a government?
