Their ugly side rears its head...Pakatan told journalist to scram!

Its all too much like a planned and concerted strategy on the part of Pakatan.

First we hear about their young reps running down the National Civics Bureau over allegations that it was being partisan. Yesterday we hear about Selangor Pakatan Rakyat Elected Representatives Officers Associa­tion (Selproa) secretary Ng Yap Hwa chasing out Utusan Malaysia journalist Yazid Alias, claiming that the daily was a “federal government agent.”

This is not good. I'd expect more tolerance (or acceptance) from Pakatan side. Many a times we've heard Pakatan alleging the federal government muzzling the press or what not, but now seems that the tables are being turned around....the pot calling the kettle black.

Stopping the press corps from doing their duty is definitely not cricket...or even democracy!
