How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain

Never argue with an idiot, otherwise people won't know which one of you is the idiot.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright - until you hear them speak.

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no
responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

If you're not going to speak up, how is the world supposed to know you exist? “Orang boleh pandai setinggi langit, tapi selama ia tidak menulis, ia akan hilang di dalam masyarakat dan dari sejarah.” - Ananta Prameodya Toer (Your intellect may soar to the sky but if you do not write, you will be lost from society and to history.)

Joceline Tan's bias was obvious

"To date, only DAP publicity secretary and PJU MP Tony Pua has attempted to explain the deal. He implied that his MCA rival Chua was shooting in the dark but reporters who covered his press conference on Thursday felt Pua himself was taking shots in the dark.
Pua could not explain why, after the debt recovery, debts owed to three Selangor GLCs had yet to be settled. Nor did he have answers for why the state paid above-market value for land saddled with encumbrances."

It would appear she did not know or read Tony's blog post...
Selangor Did Not "Overpay" for Talam Land
Tony Pua just tweeted: 'couldn't believe his ears when @drchuaslargued that DAP has so far remained completely silent on the so-called "RM1 bil S'gor land scandal"
Joceline completely ignored Dr. Dzulkefly Ahmad's revisit on Talam's debt recovery exercise, which amply explained how well it was restructured without requiring injection of funds as are common with BN's quick fixes:
As a journalist, it is imperative that she looks at both sides of any argument before forming her opinions. That she chose to look at only one side of the story and formed her opinions only showed her obvious bias towards MCA. The reason is also obvious because The Star is owned by MCA.

I have to force myself to read some of the biased articles in the mainstream papers and watched similarly biased news coverage on national television. In the process, it is a case of either be uninformed for not doing so or be misinformed for doing so.
