Who To Trust: Malaysia Mainstream Media Or Independent Media?

As loyal and faithful  Malaysians, we don’t know who to trust. The mainstream media or independent media. Let’s take one good example here:

Mainstream Media (The Star):

Here is an article entitled “Group wants Ean Yong to be partially responsible for Teoh’s death”. (25 July, 2011)

A group of people claiming to be friends and supporters of Teoh Beng Hock are demanding that Seri Kembangan assemblyman Ean Yong Hian Wah take a share of responsibility for the death of his political aide.

Acording to The star, Allan Liew Sin Kim is the group’s spokesperson. As a cluless Malaysian, I just want to know why is it that The Star doesn’t want to mention Liew Sin Kim is from MCA? Or is it that the reporter doesn’t know Allen Liew Sin Kim is from MCA?

Independent Media (Malaysiakini)

A Serdang MCA leader wore a different hat today and, claiming to be the spokesperson of ‘friends and supporters’ of Teoh Beng Hock, demonstrated against the latter’s former boss demanding he own up to his ‘share’ of the responsibility for Teoh’s death.

Acording to Malaysikini, Allan Liew Sin Kin is Serdang MCA Public and Complaints Bureau chief.

– Allan Liew Sin Kim is just the group’s spokesperson (The Star)

As an ignorant rakyat or Malaysian, I just want to know whether the group of people who protested at a multipurpose hall in Seri Kembangan, are they really friends and supporters of the late Teoh Beng Hock, as claimed? Were these caring and concerned folks at his funeral?

Or is it just an Selangor MCA blatant opportunistic act to exploit Teoh Beng Hock’s death in order to win back MCA seats in Selangor?

And all this while, there are allegations that Pakatan Rakyat leaders are exploiting Teoh Beng Hock’s death too.

Poor Teoh Beng Hock, now when he is no more here, people start to claim to be his friends and  supporters.
