MCLM President Haris Ibrahim said the two-part interview aired during prime time on Wednesday and yesterday was heavily edited and distorted in favour of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, to give him a “squeaky clean” image to the people in rural Sarawak, who have only access to mainstream media, ahead of the state vote.
“The fact is that the quotes by RPK in the heavily edited video recordings have been taken out of context and this has caused the message to be grossly distorted.
“RPK has time and time again commented on this issue via video recordings and through his postings on his news portal Malaysia Today and in various other media. Based on these, it is obvious that the essence of what he actually said had been edited out of the aired video clips, giving a totally erroneous perception,” he told a press conference here.
Haris also pointed out the discrepancies between Raja Petra’s sound bite and the voice over in between.
“I challenge TV3 to put up on YouTube or on any media the full interview, unedited,” he said.
