Musa: Blogger Popular

Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman last night acknowledged that blogs and bloggers are now becoming popular that it pose a challenge to print and electronic media in the country.

Speaking at the Kinabalu Shell Press Awards 2007 in Kota Kinabalu, the Chief Minister said:

"I can understand the challenges and pressures facing journalists as I interact with many of you almost on a daily basis. I know you have Chief Editors to answer to and deadlines to meet as well as chase after the latest scoop. I am also aware that you are competing with the growingly popular online news portals and bloggers. However, where bloggers are concerned, I must state here I hope members of the esteemed media do not resort to tactics of these faceless individual, some of who have stooped low as to put up doctored pictures."

My Say:

I blog to post issues that are not published or intentionally left out by the mainstream media. I am fully aware that in posting my views and issues of interest to the people that I am in the business of disseminating the truth, the whole truth nothing but the truth.

at last musa see it, but his not so experience press sec always stop reporter asking any question that published in net or blog. she doesn't understand that the more CM ignore and avoid allegation published in net or blog, the more people believe there must be so truth in it.

The impression CM give to the people are "I'm avoiding the issue" or "I'm hiding something".

MUSA, you need an officer who knows damage control, knows what the press want and knows how to turn table from disadvantage to advantage. hope CM see this.
