Malay Mail should make amends and conduct itself more responsibly in its coverage of the Canny Ong trial
by Lim Kit Siang
(Petaling Jaya, Thursday): The Malay Mail should conduct itself more responsibly in its coverage of the Canny trial. The nation-wide outrage at the heinous crime of the abduction-rape-murder of Canny Ong should not be degraded by flippant coverage of the trial.
The following reaction in one of the Internet mailing groups to the Malay Mail coverage should be given immediate attention by The Malay Mail and all the press in the country:
Has anyone seen both 16th and
17th editions of Malay Mail? More specifically the front pages highlighting
the Canny Ong trial and also the inside pages which carry the trial
proceedings in more detail?
These criticisms are most apt and valid and the The Malay Mail should own up to its misjudgment and make amends.
