A different role for internet or new media

Obviously a new role has been developing for the internet media vis a vis the old media. The forte of old media is news reporting. They report news. Once reported it is no longer news and not worth reporting a second time. In the case of internet news, it is not merely reporting news per se. It is an expression of the people, begging for action, demanding for action over issues or cases of injustice or a cause etc etc. No doubt the plea may completely be ignored and nothing could come out of it. But ignoring a case or issue raised will reflect badly on the parties where action is needed. There is no escape. Not doing anything when an issue becomes the talk of the town can be embarrassing or even seen as being irresponsible, callous or aloofness or arrogance could also seep through on those responsible. Whatever, there is a price for being seen in a negative light. An example of old media and internet reporting is that of a fire. The old media will report the fire when it first came to notice. Whatever happens after the first news break is often not reported. No follow up unless the fire keeps burning for a few more days. In the case of internet, the fire will be reported. And if the fire fighters did not turn up in time, it will be reported. If the fire fighters did a bad job, it will be reported. If a good job, it may also be reported. And the fire can be reported everyday if there are other consequences resulting from the fire. An exception is the rogue diplomat case where the old media keeps pushing and covering the case. The old media is pursuing and hounding this case for justice that has never been seen before. The repeated reporting of the case should at least shame the Romanian govt for appointing a rogue as its representative to the diplomatic world, and now more disgusting is trying to protect him in all ways possible. It is not willing to face the court of common justice that a serious crime has been committed by a poor specimen of its govt and that it should do all it can to bring the animal to justice, that any honourable govt will do. In this case, it is good that the old media uses all its resources to keep reporting on the case to bring the criminal to justice, and the Romanian govt to its knee if it has to. It will be great if the old media could pursue issues in this way, tenaciously, without letting go. Maybe they should continue to report more on the high property prices and how badly it is affecting the citizens and emptying their pockets. For everyone who makes a handsome profit, some poor citizen is going to pay for it for a life time. Is it a good thing? The internet or new media has a job cut out for it, to pursue issues tenaciously, without letting go.

Allow me a role play today.

Supposing me a PAP Parliamentarian and especially one who got elected more than one time and got the highest votes in the Last Election. Now relate me to the new media which just like to lambast me and my fellow parliamentarians no end.
The new media should ask relevant questions like how i am able to get the highest votes, how my party is able to get 80 seats out of a total of 82. Have You had no faith in me and my colleagues, how did the Result show otherwise ?

The new media says we bully You, screw You, manipulate and exploit You, that we are greedy and legally corrupting ourselves. Tell me please, Mr/Ms New Media, why You give me the Mandate to rule You election after election?????

N.G, role play ended. Thank You very much for bearing with me!

What about old media?

Old media is like dog, the older it is, the more obedient.

Hi patriot,

I concede that you are right on this point. The govt has the support of the people. That is why they have been elected into parliament year after year and winning practically every seat.

The people is solidly behind the govt.

Old media is like dog, the older it is, the less likely it can learn new tricks.

So, the best they can do is to be used for propaganda.

Chin Leng Sir;

sometimes one can feel desolate and utter disappointment despite or just because one is accurate or right.

Me is having that feeling.

Patriot, you will feel better if you treat yourself like a fortune teller or tangkee. You can make hundreds and one call, some will be right and some will be wrong. But don't feel attach to them. Don't claim credit for those that are right and don't 'eh lah' on those that are wrong.

Claiming too much credits will end up making people unhappy when they look at all the wrongs that you have forecast.

Dear Sir;

Your Points takened and thank You !
