As far as I can see, only BN seem to take a direct punch on both DAP and PAS in all sorts of media advertisement as well as SMS. They seem to use tactics of racial and religious dis-harmony if we were to favor the opposition. I am curious to find out if this type of direct attacks is legal as far as the guidelines of the EC is concern... or is EC just playing silent while all this is happening.


I am not sure if any of these advertisement/SMS had any impact on the one’s who view it, but for me it has increased my hate of BN and increase my support towards the opposition. If someone can go so low as to deliberately manipulating the facts to gain support, then we all should understand the level of the mentality behind the leadership that allows for such action.

Do we want these type of leaders to rule the Nation????

All the newsprint ads goes to shows one thing only how immature the BN coalition is. This is not twenty years back where the people are not so well inform, today because of the alternative medias readily available and the public being well educated this type of ads simply do not work. Look at what is happening now, previously the young people do not bother about elections but now they are really into it as this is their future so they are coming out in droves to vote. Whoever is the BN strategist for this is really behind time racial and religious politics DO NOT WORK full stop.

the ads area clearly backfiring,if you go to facebook you can see how people are reacting to the ads.even radio station such as red.fm owned by the star areplaying ads against DAP..which in turn angered listeners and now switching back to hitz.fm and fly.fm.they got to realise its not about ads but about policies and attitude that people are looking for!

Nothing new, they have been desperately doing that way before election date is even revealed.


RM73mil per month, where the money comes from? It has to come from somewhere, hope is not the taxpayers' money or the EPF (wishful thinking only).

Agree to fellow Malaysians here, the public is not stupid to believe everything printed in a single source. We have alternative source for info and party for us to vote. Not like in the old days

It looks like BN has learned little from the 2008 tsunami. They still live in their ivory towers and believe in racial hatre and racial fear campaigns to win elections. This might be effective during Dr M era, but certainly not so today. These racial fear campaigns are the biggest insult to the intelligence of today's voters. It reflects well of the mentality, strategy and quality of the BN leaders.  After 55 years of BN rules, little have been learned of socio-political changes in Malaysia at large.

By allowing this type of racial smear campaigns, it seems that EC (supposedly neutral in any democracy)  is taking side with BN. They may argue that this is not racially toned when put up by BN. If this is by PR, EC is more likely to immediately lodge police reports or taking a stern actions. By doing so, the EC is telling us they are politically partial . We dont need this bias EC at all. The entire EC leadership should be removed and replaced altogether soon after PR move to Putrajaya.

Today's voters are well informed by different media and well educated. We are no longer (dont believe in) main stream TV, radio and newspapers. We can see and judge for ourselves without being influenced by the hate politic of BN. We shall be united and give BN a real serious wake up call this time, and perhaps many future elections too.

With such a lousy mind set and low grade thinker to allow them to run another next 5 years...hardly to imagine what will happen next beside bunch of bloody non transparent undissolve issues by these bunch of LOW CLASS/POWER GREEDY country management team.

I called the Star and gave them the insight on the advert that they put up hoping to diminish the support by planting Fear and Enmity. Not realising that it is infact a revelation of BN tactic and low class fear driving message. They are bankrupt of positive virtous values and never have any. Their quilt of corruptiuon has given them sleepless night of being thrown into Sungai Buloh prison if charged and found quilty. The Rakyat has somewhat decided to vote in a New Clean Government from the mass gathering on all Ceramah with their response of Yes and applause of approval.Ubar is definitely on the cards to be dealt with.

Well, at least it good business for the printed media.  I wonder if the adds are cash term. Cause after 05/05/13,  they may not have the funds to pay for the adds.

Stupid MCA giving BN a huge headache. MCA so really stupid.
Apr 25, 2013 1:43AM
Do not worry about the ads of what they imply, worry if the majority of us are fooled by them...
Apr 25, 2013 3:15AM

a vote for BN is a vote of approval for corruption/abuse of power/scandals/rape of malaysia!

compared to this is is ok if a vote for PAS is a vote for DAP and vice versa!

Why spend unneccessary money advertising, concerts & belanja makan when you are goo****vernance ? Now, the present generation get detailed info from net so eye washing will not work.

For most of us, who have the ability to look for secondary/alternative media, this kind of ad will not work. but think of many more people, especially in rural area, where they have little or non internet coverage. so they are pretty much stuck with radio, mainstream tv channel and mainstream newspaper. and now, all of this mainstream media are controlled by BN.

lets hope many more people reaching out to people in the rural area. spread the news, make them realize BN need to be toppled

Do you think recent attacks and kidnappings in Sabah are affecting the tourism industry?
