The irresponsible media continued with their campaign of lies against the DAP even on Polling Day itself, when all campaigning should end.
Today’s Star for instance carried a false report under the heading
"Opposition set to capture Penang, says Lim", with the following report:
"DAP secretary-general Lim Kit Siang’s statement yesterday reversed his earlier claim that the party was only interested in denying the Barisan Nasional a two-thirds majority".
Today’s Sun in a report under the heading, "Kit Siang has second thoughts about teaming up with PAS" is another distortion, for I had never made any such statement at all.
After the general election, the most disgraceful journalistic chapter of the Malaysian mass media in their reportage and coverage of the dirtiest general election in history should be the subject of the most intense scrutiny and expose.
