KUALA LUMPUR: Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak on Sunday described the foreign media reports on Malaysia as “very one-sided” and “not balanced”.
He said they gave the impression that everything about the government was bad while the political opposition were angels.
He also said that these reports on Malaysia and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had been recycled from those of years ago about corruption, fraudulent elections, lack of democracy, denial of freedom of speech, and so on.
“Over the last two days, the foreign media has been attacking Malaysia in general and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in particular.
Salleh, who is also the Umno treasurer, explained that from 30 years ago, when Dr Mahathir was the prime minister, until today, the foreign media was still saying the same thing.
He said the opposition then viralled (circulated) these reports to give the impression that the whole world was against Malaysia.
“What the foreign media fails to mention in these reports is the many cases of corruption now being investigated by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in the Pakatan Harapan states of Selangor and Penang ...
“or about the allegations of cheating in 13th General Election (in 2013), such as (the alleged bringing in of) 40,000 Bangladeshi voters, that were proven false,” he added.
