Message to the People... Please Take Note

"Media massa arus p’dana akn m’perdayakan rkyt & m’cari helah utk gagalkan Dtk Seri Anwar Ibrm di P/Pauh dgn berita palsu - m’jatuhkan nama Dtk Seri & menanam rasa syak wasangka. Jom boikot! Jgn beli s/kabar & jgn p’caya berita radio/TV. Sebar kpd kwn2 di P/Png & P/Pauh".
This message was taken from People's Parliament blog calling for a sms campaign to the people to boycott our unreliable main stream media. Thought it would be useful to spread this piece of news around in my blog to create widespread awareness to this call. PLEASE HELP SPREAD THIS MESSAGE THRU SMS TO AS MANY FRIENDS AS POSSIBLE!!
English translation here:
"The MSM is going all out on a smearing campaign to undermine Anwar's chance of winning this PP by-election with false reporting, character assassination etc. Pls boycott the MSM. Do not buy newspaper and refrain from radio and tv. Pls help send this msg to as many frens as possible esp those in Pg and PP and continue spreading it till the polling date".
Let it begin now..
Below are three articles that appear in The Sun today alone. This is a fine example on how MSM can instill fear onto people. Time to perfection. Again, this is the kind of reporting we can expect for the next few weeks. Don't waste your money and time on newspaper. MalaysiaKini and MalaysiaToday can be useful to update yourself with news. You may want to try AsiaOne.

PAS mulls leaving Pakatan Rakyat
PAS, which has been at odds with their partners in the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) over certain issues, appears to be contemplating leaving the coalition.
And to minimise the negative impact should it turn its back on DAP and Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), the Islam-centric party may open its door to non-Muslims.
According to a report in Nanyang Siang Pau today, there are already calls from within the party for it to go multi-racial.

I copied your translation of the txt msg and posted it in the comments section of Haris' blog. I think it's good to spread the translations around so that everyone knows what to type to whom.

I'm sure you don't mind. :)

My translation aint that good. But i guess it's ok as long as people understand its context.

I already started myself on a sms campaign...

It ll definitely work out fine. This sentiment can only get stronger.

You are most welcome to dig into my blog and take anything you want.

I have nothing much to share here except for my criminal thoughts and looking at issues from a different perspective. Oh, not forgeting all those impulsive rantings.

Still learning...
