Just caught the 8.00pm news over TV1 and TV3.
For the first 20 minutes it was almost all BN propaganda. The propaganda centred on four main areas:
- challenge to Anwar to swear on the Qur’an
- 200 “PKR members” crossing over to BN(!) – ho hum, the usual thing.
- greater compensation or financial assistance to the poor/squatters within Permatang Pauh
- rifts within the Pakatan, conflicting ideologies etc; therefore the coalition will be unable to govern the country.
Najib was featured prominently in the news. I was flipping between these two channels and didn’t catch a single scene of Abdullah Badawi.
Meanwhile, I hear a BN source is claiming they have the edge in their own survey.
Finally, brace yourselves for last-minute shock announcements from both Pakatan (perhaps tonight?) and BN (perhaps tomorrow?).
