If you can't stand the heat...

"PRIME Minister Sir Michael Somare yesterday revealed he would introduce legislation to regulate the media.
Fuming at yesterday’s front page article in the Post-Courier which detailed his discreet arrival in Port Moresby from America, the Chief told Parliament it was time the country’s daily newspapers were regulated as they continue to publish anti-Government stories." SOURCE

When governments start talking bout regulating the media, the people should start asking serious questions. Start regulating freedom of speech and then you take away people's basic rights. While the Post Courier ran this on their front page, I could not find any story bout that in the National Online. Call me a conspiracy theorist but I wonder what happened there?
