DAP leaning towards Anti Fake News Law

MM Online - DAP MP says ‘will maybe’ back anti-fake news law (extracts):

GEORGE TOWN, March 9 — DAP is likely to support Putrajaya’s move to introduce a law against fake news if it ensures proper safeguards, its Bukit Gelugor MP Ramkarpal Singh said today.

By safeguards, Ramkarpal said he meant the proposed law must include the definition of fake news as well as who gets to define it.

“We need to know which party will determine the fake news and what is defined as fake news.

“If this is not looked through in detail and the law scrutinised thoroughly, it means anyone can announce something as fake news when it is not fake,” he said at a press conference at the Penang DAP headquarters here.

Good move Ramkarpal. Just see what's next.

MM Online - Duo fined RM2,000 each for spreading fake news on Facebook (extracts):

KUALA LUMPUR, March 9 — A former religious teacher and an herbs entrepreneur were each fined RM2,000 by the Sessions Court here today for falsely communicating on Facebook that a container containing pork mixed with mutton was brought into the country from Spain, last year.

Judge Zaman Mohd Noor meted out the punishment to Roslan Ahmad, 54, and Maizarah Abu Bakar, 54, after both accused, who were separately charged, pleaded guilty.

The court ordered the duo to be jailed a month each if they defaulted on the fine.

Roslan and Maizarah had used Facebook accounts with the profiles “Roslan Ahmad” and “Maizarah Abu Bakar” to knowingly spreading the false communication to cause public alarm at 11.58pm and 3.18pm on July 19, 2017.

Their comments were detected by a member of the public at Starbucks Aeon Alpha Angle, Bandar Baru Wangsa Maju here at 10am on August 1, 2017. He lodged a complaint.

The Malaysian Quarantine and Inspection Service (MAQIS) later established that it was fake news.

OK, so from now on I don't want to read about kerang, kembong and petrol being expensive because of GST.

For more, please read my GST again, wakakaka.

I had then written (extracts only):

Yessirree, I had previously posted 'fake news' of fresh seafood (kembong and kerang) prices supposedly gone astronomical because of the evil GST, but no one, including the responsible reporter, said anything about fresh seafood being NOT subjected to GST. [...]

The 'fake news' aimed to show that with GST, price of kerang had leapt from RM4 to a humongous RM10.

By the by, I wonder whether there was really an anaemic 'Siti Zahara' that the reporter supposedly interviewed? Wakakaka.

That piece of 'fake news' about kerang was the most humongous piece of bullshit, depicting the difference between a so-called pre-GST-priced kerang at RM4 to presumably a post-GST-priced kerang at RM10.

Who cares if there is no GST on cockles, because such 'fake news' would be believed by the 'already converted'.

The sad thing has been the 'already converted' were considered as 'gullible guppies' by their political parties who wanted to incite them to vote for their parties.


  1. Is this Ramkarpal Otak Rosak or something?
    FAKE News in Malaysia will be decided by MCMC, which is run by Anjing UMNO and Anjing Najib.

    Ramkarpal may well get to a soon to be victim.

    1. "Ramkarpal may well get to a soon to be victim."

      he must learn from kt then, for eg close both eyes on that msia liar site but place msia insight under the microscope.

    2. both of you have amazing mentality of sheer hatred, which BTW blinds you

    3. Wakakakaka……… bcoz yr hatred IS very infectious but react in an opposite manner to yr opponents!

      Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the best of them all?

  2. Me think he forgot the enforcers of laws and security since the old days who are mostly bayees (Sikhs)are almost extinct.

    Kids that time are most terrified of an approaching Bayee law enforcer.

  3. Ramkarpal? To the zombies, he is now irrelevant like his sister Sangeet. They only listen to Gobind now.
