Malaysia: Blogger Registration

Maverick SM responds to a Malaysian minister who wants bloggers to register with the government. The minister feels that the registration process would help the people trust the bloggers. “Bloggers are nothing and it is never a question of trust. Readers merely visit blog sites to read and find out what the main media wouldn't write or report or whether the facts and been twisted to suit. The fact is, the general public do not trust the main media anymore and that is the reason they turn to blogs for further and better particulars; not otherwise.”
