A particularly invidious journalist needs to be outed for duplicity!
There is a man full of bile prancing around as a journalist, who though US educated and who also educates his daughter at Ladies is nevertheless someone who despises anything American, Liberal or capitalist or for what matter Western, in his writings, though a closet capitalist, which he does not want to admit to in his desires, who would be the first to persuade his daughter to go to a US University if she so chooses.
That is Malinda Seneviratne, who just wrote this article attacking the Prime Minister like a pickpocket! See link:
Granted he cannot stand the man, but if we read what he has written, he does not go into the frustration that the PM or for that matter the President has shown in why the media is till harping on every wrong doing in this Govt. of which there are many, while at the same time being wholly silent on the excesses of the previous Govt. and due to the media suppression they engaged in were NOT able to express the anti Govt. rhetoric that media NORMALLY engages in.
In his pathetic article he merely explains that the media job is to criticize the Govt. in power, without reference to the adulterated mind of the public to rationalize the change of circumstance, where the Media is truly free, but not responsible with it.
Given this background, they completely mislead the people, who have had to endure a lack of criticism of Rajapaksa Administration excesses during their reign, who are NOW subjected to excesses of the Ranil Wickremasinghe Administration, and thereby are misled into believing the current was worse than the previous, when even comparison is unfair due to a completely one sided totalitarian regime.
It is just these educated journalists, who should know better than those the Rajapakse’s bought for petty cash who don’t get that petty cash anymore and are screaming blue murder against this Govt.
Seneviratne can obtain redemption if he puts Country first, and not Anti-Ranil first in his journalistic bias. The PM from a media family is fully aware of what their responsibilities are, and is pointing out shortcomings in unreasonable criticism, given the environment that existed then and now, and is asking for some slack. Seneviratne being biased cannot rationalize this, and bleats like a sheep!
