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

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

False accusations: Overall, it is becoming a habit

And PM Najib got the cheek to list out 7 sins of PAS state government of Kelantan.

Blogger Donplaypuks lists Najib's own deadly ones...

Anyway, the modus operandi of BN seem to be: false accusations against opposition leaders, with the glare of wide publicity using mainstream media at their disposal. It did not matter to them at all whether there was any truth, so long as there is someone willing to state something against the opposition.

Anwar and family had to go through the shame of Sodomy 1 and 2, and now another dubious sex video making the rounds just before the GE.

Lim Guan Eng, as Chief Minister of Penang, had his fair share of all kinds of accusation. So did Khalid Ibrahim, as Selangor Menteri Besar.

They might be paid compensations and/or ordered to be given public apologies by the accusers, but the damage to reputation and the stress of having to counter endless false accusations cannot be fully restored or got over with.

The latest apology comes from ex-MACC chief...

Update: As Martin Jalleh puts it:

Umno's culture of 'Slander first, Sorry later' continues...
