Free censorship service for misleading reports

PUBLIC NOTICE
Following yesterday’s announcements by various public authorities, the uppercaise blog is pleased to announce a free public service to correct misleading reports that appear in newspapers, magazines and all kinds of printed matter. Readers are invited to submit or nominate misleading or untrue reports that appear in the printed press, so that corrective action can be taken to ensure that citizens are given the correct picture of what really happened, according to the Ministry of Home Affairs, the police force, or whoever is pointing a licence at your head.

Here is an example of how citizens may demonstrate their loyalty to the ruling party or the head of the ruling party (or nearest offer). The following is a report in The Star (rumoured to be a newspaper), which we have corrected based on the Home Ministry’s way of thinking.

Home Ministry: Parts of Economist article blacked out were incorrect, misleading

PUTRAJAYA: The Home Ministry blacked out parts of The Economist”s article on the recent Bersih 2.0 rally for being incorrect and misleading.

Its Publications Control and Quranic Text Division secretary Abd Aziz Md Nor said the sentences contained incorrect statements and could mislead readers.

He said the decision to instruct the magazine’s publisher to black out the sentences was made after consulting the police.

“We went through the article and found the incorrect statements. Subsequently, we told the publisher to black out those sentences,” he said when contacted Tuesday.

Abd Aziz said they received the July 16 edition about a week before it went on sale for clearance, which, he added, was the normal procedure.

The article chronicles the July 9 rally, including the arrest of more than 1,600 people.

You see how easy it is. You can even do it yourself. All you need is a news report printed in a Malaysian newspaper, and a black marker pen.

Submit your entries now. The best entry submitted will receive a yellow tee-shirt and several days free accommodation in the nearest police detention cell.

Disclaimer: This notice was not paid for by Pilot Pens, but all payments will be quietly accepted.
