Both Christian Science Monitor and The Economist wrote favourably of Najib's administration!
And both Christian Science Moinitor (CSM) and The Economist article have indirectly admonished Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim's for being a rabble rousing and bitter politician using tactics best described as counter productive to peace and stability.
Both have indirectly acknowledged that Anwar's obsession with trying to be a prime minister and along the way disrupt multi-racial Malaysia, as frivolous and dangerous
The myth of Anwar controlling the western media and having strong political connections, namely in the West, has been beautifully busted. His attempt to derail a closed-door seminar in Washington recently in which Malaysian politicians had a chance to meet with about 50 American decision makers to discuss bilateral issues, failed.
He even tried to used his paid American spin-doctor including a former American diplomat once served Malaysia, to blatantly disregard American freedom of expression by disrupting that meeting. For the record the organiser of that meeting, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), told Anwar's cohort "no can do (read fuck off)! This is America".
Another blow came to crack the myth of Anwar's political invincibility was when two very influential western media organisation -- the CSM and The Economist read here and here-- wrote quite favourably of Najib Tun Razak's administration.
So it is fair to say that the Western media is not as gullible as Anwar would like to think. For like they say you can only fool some people some of the time, eh!
