KUALA LUMPUR: Today Umno welfare bureau chairman Datuk Shamsul Anuar Nasarah reminded the nation’s remaining news portals that despite last night’s closure of The Malaysian Insider, the government believed in press freedom.

“We are big on freedom of speech and don’t want to stifle creativity,” said a party insider, “journalists should feel comfortable praising the Prime Minister and his government through any form of free expression without fearing censorship or legal repercussions.”

“The Malaysian Insider closed for purely commercial reasons and the government should not be blamed,” said a govt media analyst, “apparently, TMI worked on an antiquated business model requiring readers and advertisers not being blocked from the website.”

“It’s a valuable business lesson the remaining news portals should learn from!”
