THE TRUTH REALLY HURTS

There seems to be a sudden concern of cyber news webmasters crackdown by the Barisan Nasional government by using the police, although most news published are true. It has been revealed that some independent news or blog websites are visited by about 5 million viewers daily. It could be safely be speculated that this figure is very alarming to the ruling Barisan Nasional government, since most of the adverse news is against their mismanagement, corruption and incompetency which will affect its performance while the next general election is called which is just around the corner. Since there is a common saying 'the truth really hurts' and which the Barisan Nasional government does not want to reveal.

We need to thank these webmasters for exposing the truth and we need to admire their courage despite the consequences they may face.

On the other hand, the police force should be taken to task for not investigating millions of police reports made by the ordinary rakyat, but instead expediting reports made by those connected to the ruling government.

The ruling government, Barisan Nasional with its help by one of its wealthy and most powerful partners, UMNO had used deceitful means to sabotage certain websites to create chaos, by having 25 cyber troopers to disguise as non-malays to create racial sentiments. This sort of act should be punished.

Its time for the rakyat to evaluate its position and caste their votes they feel best when the next polls is called.
