Media Bloggers Alliance
Rocky AKA Ahirudin Attan of Rocky's Bru thinks that Deputy Energy, Water and Communications Minister Shaziman Mansor made that suggestion (that bloggers register with the ministry) not out of sheer stupidity and ignorance but out of FEAR.
Here's what Rocky said in his posting on Shaziman's silly suggestion:
" When certain quarters in government become hostile towards bloggers, I believe they mean to aim their hostility at a small group of bloggers or on-line writers whose views and takes of current affairs they fear. Take the latest remarks here made by Shahziman Abu Mansor in parliament yesterday. It is not stupidity; it is fear. Ok, ok. Shahziman has just shown us how goblog he is but it I believe he said it out of fear."
Rocky believes that the time is right to have an alliance of bloggers. Some bloggers are meeting in Kuala Lumpur at 5.30pm today to discuss this.
