Malaysia: Against Opinion Space Monopoly

Jeff Ooi in Malaysia seeks encouragement from Gandhi's non-violent movement against the British salt monopoly in India. Jeff and a fellow Malaysian blogger are being sued by a mainstream media company. The blogger writes “Seventy-seven years on, ain't we living in a world of surging monopoly over the opinion space. Constructive criticisms are gross dissent. And that, you should only buy one version of truth that is news-slanted by the politically-cowed mainstream media dictated by the editorial mullahs?”
