Bernama Disseminates News And Information 'Accurately', Says Najib

The Malaysian National News Agency (Bernama) plays a very important role in disseminating accurate news and official information, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said Sunday.

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.

Actually, i've noticed that the new info minister has been quite democratic and trying to open up on media freedom. With the blog issue, inviting bloggers to appear on tv, the continuation of the parliament proceedings, we foresee more positive changes in the future too. It shows that we are not the restrictive and bounded government as before. We'll see, but if it keeps on going, I say not bad at all for now.

Hahahaha...what it shows is that the current Information Minister is just not as stupid & thick headed as the last idiotis Mamak Minister!
He is smart...he knows that if he tries to act in the usual "BN" way, he will get into trouble so he is watching what he does.
I'm sorry, but I have yet to believe that a BN-controlled "anything" can be "honest"!

"Twenty-two websites and blogs have been investigated by the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) for airing false, pornographic and baseless allegations.
Deputy Energy, Water and Communications Minister Datuk Joseph Salang Gandum told Senator Sharifah Azizah Syed Zain in Dewan Rakyat on Monday that out of those blogs investigated, the commission had also forwarded three investigation papers to the Attorney-General’s Chambers".......
Watch these guys, they will use any means to stop the Blog Sites that are not pro BN!
