Well all the talks of Blogger being a thorn to any ruling government should be disregarded and dispelled. The No.1 Man in the country newly installed Prime Minister Najib keeps the nation updated in his blog www.1malaysia.com.my .
He has been using the new media,incorporating video messages and posting them on you tube. He has also used Twitter(the social networking service that allows users to send short messages to each other)
Najib realises in order to keep tabs with the alterantive media he needs to embrace this new media tool. Even President Obama has used it to his advantage and we question,”WHY Not Najib as the New Prime Minister of Malaysia…??”
Of course when bloggers do write it is bests that they follow the rules as much as citizens journalism is concerned. There must be facts,figures,statistics to substantiate all claims and they never lie. The ruling governments in the world thrives on Information and they are willing to spend astronomical sums to stay ahead of this political game.
Surely,with this No.1 man Najib being called a blogger too in the mainstream media all earlier SWEEPING STATEMENTS should be put to RESTS.
As for N29 Batang Ai both sides of the political divide are using all their knowledge and experience to swing the voters to put a mark X on their candidates. Streams of election campaigners are seen making their way to Lubok Antu and even there are “SMS’s” now being send.
Every one is using whatever ways to campaign and the mosts creative to date if I may say is the ‘Life Buoy PKR FLAG” floating on the Batang Lupar river. New methods of Propaganda war is necessary.
The urban voters have already bought the ideas and expect the political parties to be creative and always a step ahead. In the rural areas. FLAGS,POSTERS,BUNTINGS and BILLBOARDS are still the usual ways of getting the message across. Of course the party election ceramah speakers play a very vital role too.
Business is brisk in the town of Lubok Antu and the shopowners are smiling and grinning from ear to ear. Tony ak Lu and Andy of audie61 will be heading towards a longhouse in the interior this Saturday night to gauge the sentiments of the people.
We say as always,” Bloggers are here to stay and unless the internet/cyber space is shut down for good the BLOGGERS have a place called home IN MALAYSIA. For now on behalf of audie61 crew,we congratulate the No1 man for being installed as the Prime Minsiter of Malaysia and being a BLOGGER.
