Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud said Saturday that censorship is useless, and commended the Barisan Nasional administration for “tearing down the ISA” [FACT: Internal Security Act—Thailand has one, too. Time to go!].

Taib also commended the amendments to laws governing the media.

“Old-fashioned censorship just doesn’t work anymore. The free flow of information (via the Internet) has given great power to the ordinary men on the street,” Taib said at a gathering of social media enthusiasts here.
