Lulu Wonders If Zam Realises That He Has Dis-Credited All The Malaysian Press?

Zam said this, and it was reported by Malaysiakini
On bloggers, Zainuddin said that media professionals, should not resort to information provided in blogs. "They (bloggers) are citizen journalists. If you use (materials from) their blogs, then you are no longer a real journalist," he said.

okay....
there goes
Berita Harian - Anaknya, Datin Paduka Marina dalam laman blognya berkata...
and
NST - ... Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir said in her blog
and
The Star - On her blog rantingsbymm.blogspot.com, Marina wrote...
and
Harian Metro - Datin Paduka Marina dalam blognya berkata...
and
Utusan Malaysia - ... katanya dalam laman blognya, rantingsbymm.blogspot.com, petang ini.

The doublespeak that spew forth after a ghost whacked him on the back and made him confirm the fact that in Bolehland, propaganda qualifies as and substitutes for real news.

Don't we already know that and for a very long time?

All media should be banned in Malaysia just like in Myanmar. There should be only one voice...UMNO's.(read..Junta's).

Don't try to be funny or thousands may go missing!

-----------------
Information Minister Zainuddin Maidin has told editors not to play up negative news because Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's pledge to "hear the truth" does not apply to the media.
--------------------------
My interpretations are:
1. play up negative news should not be done by the Media, even they are truth.
2. Then, should "Truth" be passed to PM under "Private & Confidential"?
3. Or, via smaller publicity than media, such like the blogs?
-----------------
On bloggers, Zainuddin said that media professionals, should not resort to information provided in blogs. "They (bloggers) are citizen journalists. If you use (materials from) their blogs, then you are no longer a real journalist," he said.
---------
4. Then, blogs should be out? because they are "citizen" journalist?
5. Unless, journalist not using "citizen" material?
6. From 1 above, "real" journalist
in media, should only play up "Positive" news?

Then, could the reason why Berita Harian, NST, The Star, Harian Metra, Utusan Malaysia and Bernama are quoting Marina's Blog because she is "more than" a citizen? The news of Mahathir is positive?

SO, TRUTH & POSITIVE are to be under specification from Information Minister (on behalf of PM?) and not from Citizen, nor, Journalist -"citizen" or "real"?

So, is Zam challenging the ability of Citizen and Journalist on distinguishing the "Truth"? Or, "Truth" differs between Zam (or/and PM) and the Citizens & Journalists?

Zam should better be the next astronaut!!
