This is not breaking news, but I’ll bet most Westerners haven’t heard about it.

John Dvorak asks: “What kind of newspapers do they have in Malaysia that they would sue somebody for speaking their mind — when it’s their job to expose people’s opinions?”

Indeed, indeed!

And let’s not be too smug. Do you think this could never happen in America?

I wonder.

More about the story here.

The folks in the video are Dvorak, the host; Lisa Stone, co-founder of BlogHer; and Sebastian Rupley, an editor for PC Magazine. The show is Episode No. 48/49 of “Cranky Geeks with John C. Dvorak” (via Jeff Ooi’s blog, Screenshots).
