Hee hee hee.
So many things the press know but won't print. One example, who gave
orders to kill the Mongolian model and why?
A few days ago I saw a documentary on well-known Malaysian cartoonist
Lat (on Discovery Channel, I think). In it Lat mentions that while he
was with the New Straits Times he drew some political cartoons but the
Chief Editor warned him that if he published such cartoons, they would
be detained.
Ah! that is Asian press democracy. While on this subject, are you
aware that the Chinese government jailed a guy for exposing that
shoddy construction work led to the collapse of many schools in an
earthquake and killing thousands of school kids.

Full coverage:
Former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said he disagrees with the current administration for spending a whopping RM76 million ($33 million) to arrange a meeting between PM Najib Razak and United States President Barack Obama earlier this week.

Minister in the Prime Minister's Depart-ment, Mr Nazri Aziz, had disclosed the amount paid to global public relations firm, Apco Worldwide. He claimed it was necessary to "repair" Malaysia-US ties strained during Dr Mahathir's 22-year rule from 1981 to 2003.

Dr Mahathir said: "Meeting is good but to say this money is spent because of what happened in the past, I don't think is good. Whether the ties are good or bad, the fact is the US has not done anything that would show they were offended by us," he added, citing the absence of official US complaints during his administration. -The Malaysian Insider.
