According to Malaysiakini today:
More than 100 journalists are staging a boycott after the Parliament administration cut media access to the building’s lobby and barricaded the area.
Journalists from all print, online and electronic media decided to only cover the proceedings in the Dewan Rakyat and boycott all the press conferences or events held outside of the chamber.
The journalists were outraged and stunned by the latest ruling which has resulted in the entire lobby being cordoned off, apparently on security grounds.
This move has restricted the journalists from moving around freely in the lobby or approaching MPs directly.
Apparently, this is the first time Parliament enforced such ruling. Nazri Aziz said 5 of you journalists from each news agency are enough. If you come in a battalion, you are not efficient workers!!!
Proof of what he has blurted out to antagonise the bestest friends of any politicians is here.
And then at 2:15pm, a hero emerges from the depths of BN’s Backbencher’s Club, to gallantly remove the offending barricades to allow the begging media access to the Parliament lobby. And yes, according to loudmouth Bung Mokhtar, “It’s business as usual.”
Yup. A flip-flopping trend is now viral at Parliament.
Just like me virally infected noooooooose…
