In perhaps the most awkward comparison to news, Malaysia’s minister for Communication and Multimedia today defended the blocking of The Malaysian Insider.
According to Tan Sri Salleh Keruak, this was because the content of the news portal was undesirable content similar to that of online porn.
Now this is a revelation, because I personally never imagined ministers and MPs looking at TMI and getting aroused, let alone to the point that Salleh Keruak sees it as undesirable. Perhaps it deflated his ego.
And on top of all this, Salleh piled this on:
“If we wait as Sepang MP (Hanipa Maidin) said, for them to be charged before acting, there will be a lot of websites with pornographic content that we need to act on,”
Well, truth be told, people can still access porn online. It is one of the reasons people wish for access to the internet, placing second only to social media.
In fact, have a read to just how prevalent pornography is in the world here.
But in all honesty, right now I’m just wondering one thing; who the heck jerks off to newspapers?
