Read all about it in the Malaysian mainstream media!

Re the Terengganu state MB tussle:

“What you should know is that a decision has been made in the interest of the people of Terengganu." Abdullah said.

To a question on why there was no compromise for a third person to be Mentri Besar, Abdullah said the details were not for the press to know.

On whether the decision to accept Ahmad instead of Idris was a “loss of face” for the Prime Minister, Abdullah replied: “It’s not a question of losing face because what is more important was that the matter has been resolved. "

Re one of the three recently resigned deputy ministers:

Datuk Ghapur Salleh has quashed speculations that he will jump ship after quitting his post as deputy natural resources and environment minister.

Re not so smart SMART Tunnel long closure:

"Our standard procedure is to evacuate the motorway when the water level in the tunnel reaches 150 cubic metres per second,"
he said, adding that the water had risen to that level at 5.05pm on Saturday.

blah, blah, blah, blah, ad nauseam.

Sifting the truth from the misinformation, propaganda, lies, double speak and spin needs careful dissection and reading between the lines, or as is more often the case, the rumour mill churns out alternative tales and speculation will be rife.

This creates unease, uncertainty and public displeasure.

The rumours and speculation however invariably turn out to be the truer version of current events!

So why waste your time listening to the TV and radio news, or wasting your hard earned money buying the BN controlled newspapers?

Get your information from your local coffee shop, taxi drivers or market stall holders, these are currently the only real news source for those who do not have access to the Internet.


Watch and read the local mainstream media for your daily dose of the only news which BN wants you to hear!
