#1 The NST is merely a sanitized English version of the govt. mouthpiece under the same ownership of the NST group that publishes the (priviledged to be racist) malay dailies.

How ironic that this NST in struggling to reinvent itself (in vain for better sales)gets reprimanded by its master. In fact it should be suspended like the Sarawak Tribune was for the same "sin".

Overall, NST has always been an incorrigible spin paper and pro-establishment mouthpiece. That's why their sales reclined.

#3 PlaneDan, Not to worry, it's still peaceful there ; the problem is one of mental attitude and worldview made difficult by the official pro islamo slant in everything official and the accompanying hypocrisy ensuing from that.

#4 Malaysia, led by Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, an Islamic scholar, has banned the Danish newspaper cartoons at the heart of the row and has suspended the publishing licences of two newspapers for publishing some of them.

Heck, not much different from here. What's the count up to now on US dailies that actually printed the cartoons themselves? Three?
