Information Minister Zainuddin Maidin has told the media not to play up negative news because Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's pledge to hear "the truth" does not apply to the media.
Zainuddin said this during a one-hour meeting on Wednesday at the RTM headquarters in Kuala Lumpur with the country’s top editors, including those
from national news agency Bernama. The minister is one of two top government officials to hold meetings with the media top brass this week.
Yesterday, chief secretary to the government Mohd Sidek Hassan urged media
organisations to avoid emphasising on news deemed negative against the government, such as the 2006 Auditor-General’s report.
