Don’t be taken in by what you read in cyberspace, Yen Yen tells oversea students
By STEPHEN THEN
AUCKLAND: Malaysian studying overseas have been told to beware of political brainwashing from home-grown “political extremists” via the new media.
Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen said these “extremists” were using blogs and websites to influence students overseas to have negative views about the Government.
“Do not be easily taken in by what you read in cyberspace of what is happening back home.
“Bloggers and writers on certain websites tell you 50% truth that is mixed with lies.
“They are trying to confuse the minds of young students, including those studying overseas,” she told Malaysian students at a buka puasa and dialogue session here on Thursday night.
Dr Ng, who is touring Australia and New Zealand to tap the tourism market of the two countries, advised Malaysian students overseas to always double-check with government leaders on the extreme views expressed on the Internet.
She added that it was important too for Government leaders going on official trips overseas to meet Malaysian students abroad and provide them with the true picture of programmes like the Government transformation plan, anti-corruption drive and improving the living standards of the poor.
Big Brother is good. Big Sister loves you. Everything is perfect, perfect as can be.
Now close your eyes and go back to sleep, little children.
