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

Government fed by the people

Daily Mail: Has MH370 finally been found?

'Search teams flock to spot of suspected crash site after China releases satellite image of debris in the South China Sea... where rescuers first started looking
Chinese government satellite imagery has been released which shows the 'suspected crash site' of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370
The blurry images appear to show three large pieces of debris - the largest of which is 78-feet by 72-feet
Discovered near to the aircraft's original flight plan
The satellite captured the images on March 9 at 11am - the day after the crash - but they were only released on Wednesday
The images were published on Wednesday evening local time in Beijing around 11 hours ago
Oil rig worker claims to have witnessed a burning plane flying near to the co-ordinates of the satellite images
The distance between the last known location of MH370 and new Chinese satellite image is 141 miles northeastwards
The Chinese confirmed they have deployed aircraft and vessels to verify the debris
Malaysian search aircraft have also been sent
The US Navy will be deploying two navy vessels to the area'

Update: To be fair, since my posting, Acting Transport Minister had refuted this claim, and quoted China's Ambassador to Malaysia who said the release of the satellite image was unofficial and a mistake.

Unrelated to the above controversy, but relevant to our continued interest in the still missing plane, I find the following graphics from AFP, informative and helpful in our understanding of the equipment involved in tracking jetliners:
