Pro-BN media claim 80000 attended BN’s CNY-Psy bash


Despite observers on-the-ground observers pointing out that the attendance at the BN’s Chinese New Year open house bash fell short of 50000 people, that did not stop the mainstream media reporting that 80000 or more turned up.

During the mammoth rally ahead of 308, when the Han Chiang field was packed to overflowing, the consensus on the turnout was about 50000 to 60000.

Yesterday, large sections of the field were covered by the stage and canopies, and yet today’s mainstream media (and last night’s prime time TV bulletin mostly seemed to have settled for a figure of 80000 (or more) for yesterday’s turnout.

Contrast that with their low estimates for the #KL112 ‘People’s Uprising Rally’ at Merdeka Stadium, and you really have to wonder how low they can go…

CalvinSunkaran Before you open you mouth do check your facts and figures first. For the many many years I have known Anil – he has been critical across political lines. He has slammed PR and BN at the same time. He has also taken a strong stand against a no of PR policies.
Meanwhile, tried to lie your way thru’ by misquoting Anil, and put your foot in your mouth. Padan muka!

Hahahaha…based on your own reporting during 0308, there were 30K people attended the Han Chiang ceramah. Now you seems to have developed a memory lapse and claim 50 to 60k ppl attended it.

Thank goodness for archives.


Anil, if you want to be seen as neutral, please do behave as neutral. If you want to campaign for Pakatan, at least be honest about and admit it. You seems to indicate that 80k (or 50k as you claim) as a failure. When Pakatan promised a million people and end up with 40k marchers, you declare it as a triumph and a victory. You say Najib is playing politics and naive for using PSY for attracting voters. But you seem to dancing along when DAP produce a tasteless video of PSY’s song attacking Najib’s family and make outrageous claims.… Read more »


Avoid reading and watching main stream media like Utusan, BH, The Star, NST. Sinchew, Nanyang, TV1, TV2, TV3, if possible.

semuanya OK kot

Agree. To save the country and ourselves, wherever you can (in your sphere of influence), practise strict censorship on the propaganda from the censors.


Najib is definitely on his way out as PM and a politician. Even a student campaigning against him in Pekan, a Najib’s constituency, has been beaten up. Why is he so afraid of losing to even a student activist? Now he is making a mockery of himself, knowing so well that by beating a drum and wearing the traditional costume on CNY, will not make him more trust worthy, sincere and honest in his deeds and words delivered to the Chinese community. He should be attending church services on Christmas like what Arafat did to foster goodwill between Muslims and… Read more »


Psy must have thought that the organisers chiak s… (eat … in hokkien), to pay so much for him just to sing that one song twice. Maybe the organisers have only s… in their brains


I say the bigger the number the better because then it looks like Najib and BN got ‘Psy’ by an even bigger crowd. People like Mat Sabu bought multiple copies of Chinese papers with big pictures and the headline to show in the heartland and the words got around in every mamak stall and kedai-kopi when they read Utusan making it worst. The thing is a train-wreck from the start-to-finish AND AFTER..Its not just the Emperor and the royal court has no clothes – THE PEOPLE SHOUTED THREE TIMES AND it went out throughout the land. A psychological barrier has… Read more »




These mainstream media must be dumb to play up the number of attendees at Psy function. What it indirectly shows is that more people are not ready for BN and we heard it loud and clear from the video.

If I were Najib, I would have told the mainstream media to lower the number substantially so that it will show that the number of people that shouted no to his question Are you ready for BN is not that many.


Whether 80,000 or 100,000 or even one million turn out does not mean that all will vote for BN. They came to see Psy and ignore the other Sai


for pro-bn events, 1, 20, 30, 200, 300…..100,000
for anti-BN events, 1.1.1,2.1,2.2,2.3..200 turnout though thousands are present.
go on Utusan and Star with your delusions.


Never mind the exact number of attendees. However, the 3 ‘Yes’ and 3 ‘No’ are very clear.
No dispute.

najib manaukau

So what ? In fact the important thing was how many of those who attended are Umno/BN supporters, also there were 80,000 of them who attended the show responded no to Najib’s question. Najib could not have a peaceful night after the answer was not what he had expected and wanted. What a … shamble, Najib, you don’t have to pay for insult, there are plenty in store waiting for you and they are free. Just wait for them when after you have announced the date for the GE. Or are you prolonging it just for the glamour for as… Read more »


Last 5 years I took the trouble to talk to 2-3 Gerakan flers. One was Wong Mun Hoe, the other is our church guy. Both are so convinced that Gerakan and BN did nothing wrong in the 18 years rule under KTK. They attest PR have been a total screw up in the last 5 years in Penang and Selangor. Invariably, the biggest truimph of MB Khalid was to kick out Alam Flora out of Selangor and make mega savings. The 2 Gerakan *&*)&)@$ are so disgusting to talk to as are so stubborn and adamant. Their response. “We forgive… Read more »


Only can trust the 4D and Toto results on mainstream papers?

Andrew I

How do my new clothes look?


The first news on TV reported 100k. After that the report go down to 80k. Like I said before we cannot trust the BN UMNO and their sycophants media anymore. From using doctored photo and now trying to pop up the figure through the Psy, it failed miserably. Can we afford to have a govt and leaders that keep on lying and deceiving the people.

Let us all say No to BN .

No to BN . No to BN . No to BN .
