1838) RAKYATNEWS - NGOs Demand US Government ‘Discipline’ Media Over MH370 Coverage



KUALA LUMPUR 3 April - Some 60 people representing three non-governmental organisations (NGOs) demonstrated outside the US embassy here today, demanding its government take action against two of its broadcasters for allegedly “irresponsible” coverage of the Malaysia Airlines aviation crisis.

The demonstrators accused broadcasters CNN and Fox News of skewing their coverage of the missing Flight MH370 to mount a “smear campaign” against Malaysia, painting it as an extremist country.

“We hope that at least the US government can discipline these news organisations...the lies that they are spewing, is smearing the image of Malaysia as a moderate nation.

“We know that there is freedom of speech, but that freedom cannot be limitless… at least the US should advise them against practicing gutter journalism,” Nadzim Johan, the president of Malaysian Muslim Consumers Association (PPIM), told reporters.
