PM accepts NST apology

SOLI adj. sorry

Malaysian Prime Minister has accepted the New Straits Times' apology for publishing a controversial Wiley Miller's Non Sequitur cartoon on Feb 20. The PM who is also the Internal Security Minister, said no action would be taken against the newspaper as it had unreservedly apologised on its frontpage.

If you unwittingly publish (or knowingly did it more than once, ahem NST) a controversial cartoon or article in your newspaper (or on your website, or TV broadcast), you can squirm your way out of trouble if you:-

(a) unreservedly apologise on the frontpage (or broadcast a 24-hour apology TV telethon if you are a TV station)
(b) do not carry other articles alongside the apology (or no advertisement time on TV)

and also:-

(c) the apology must not be hidden in a single column
(d) (under no circumstances) MUST YOU PUBLISH THE DANISH CARICATURES
(e) and the Internal Security Minister decision is FINAL
N.B. actions (a)-(d) do not guarantee forgiveness if (e) is not hua hee.

And please don't add salt to wound by printing a huge OBITUARY announcing your apology and demise. Ahem, Sarawak Tr...

Your turn to apologise... ahem, RTM...

Respecting the PM & the People. Sisuahlai.
