Najib: Censorship no longer effective

KUALA LUMPUR: Censorship of media articles are no longer effective, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on Monday.

If stories published about the Government were wrong, the publication in question could be sued, he said.

Najib admitted that the Government’s censorship of The Economist’s article on Bersih last month was ineffective and said that its censorship methods would be reviewed.

“Only one line was censored, but the act of censoring made more news than the news itself,” he said.

Facepalm moment when they tried to censored The Economist.

I mean, there are more people that had access to the uncensored news on the Internet than the number of people reading The Economist!
