Bernama Disseminates News And Information 'Accurately', Says Najib
He said Bernama could take pride in its achievement.
"Most importantly, the information is conveyed accurately to the people in and outside the country," he told reporters when asked to comment on the 40th Bernama anniversary on May 20.
Najib will be the guest-of-honour at a dinner tomorrow in conjunction with the anniversary celebrations.
He hoped Bernama would continue to strive to enhance its commitment to be more successful in the years ahead.
"I wish Bernama a happy 40th anniversary," he added.
Bernama was set up under an Act of Parliament on May 20 1968.
Earlier, Najib launched the national-level Unity Month at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre. (Bernama)
***** When the now consigned-to-oblivion info-dictator Zainuddin Maidin was in power at the Information Ministry, no none trusted any report that came from Bernama. However the current head honcho Shaberry Cheek seems to be making the right noises off and on although he appeared to be a little intolerant on the issue of 'live' telecast of Parliament's proceedings. Only time will tell if Bernama is indeed disseminating 'accurate news and official information'. But I won't place my bets on this happening in the near future.
