Selective reporting or just censorship?

The Malaysian national news agency (BERNAMA) and the main stream, politically controlled, media are not reporting this horrendous crash, but read about it in the Straits Times, by clicking HERE


"A leisurely drive down the winding roads of Genting Highlands turned into a horrific nightmare for nine Singaporeans trapped in a minivan with no brakes.

Despite the handbrake being fully engaged, the rental van hurtled down the road, gaining speed all the time. It side-swiped several vehicles along the way and nearly careened off the road before finally crashing into a road divider.

The driver and four passengers were injured, two of them seriously. Still in a critical condition in a Kuala Lumpur hospital is a two-year-old girl who suffered internal injuries and had to have part of her intestines removed."

There are many factors which may have cause the break failure, poor driving skill, untrained driver, badly maintained vehicle, periodic inspection not carried out correctly, but to sum it up in a few words, it was probably the result of bribery and corruption!

Generally the media in Malaysia only reports the 'feel-good-factor' (FGF), and negative news is often not reported.

FGF like this:

"The number of tourists visiting Malaysia last month increased by 3.9% compared to the same period last year."

Acribus initiis, incurioso fine

Zealous at the commencement, careless towards the conclusion

De asini umbra disceptare

To argue about the shadow of an ass. (petty things for petty minds)
