Dear Lanka Web Editor,

As a Respectable Editor and a News Publication, your Web site always PUBLISH WHAT EVER COMMENTS MADE BY US, THE PUBLIC.But the so called big news papers like ISLAND or even Mirror, ” THOUGH THERE IS SPACE FOR PUBLIC COMMENTS,” I have never seen any of these comments been published by the such News Papers.”

Today I made the following comments in the ISLAND news paper, but I know these will never be published.

“Hollow Prabath,

News Editor of the “ISLAND”!!!

I have made several comments with regard to many NEWS ITEMS WHERE THERE WAS A SAPCE FOR public comments.

Is that right Mr EDITOR?

But I, HAVE NEVER SEEN ANY ONE’S COMMENTS ARE BEEN PUBLISHED???”

Why is that Man Why???

Most reggretably I have to say that “THIS WILL BE GIVEN WIDE PUBLICITY ON THE INTETERESTS OF OUR GENERAL PUBLIC!!!”

As Island NEVER PUBLISH COMMENTS OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC!”

Thanks,

    This is what was alleged by the freelance journalist who wrote under the heading: It is great stupidity if Editors, News Editors, Features Editors, Senior reporters and Media Directors of national Newspapers and the Electronic Media believe that media is above reproach.

    “Freelance Journalist/Journalism” cannot be killed in Sri Lanka by these media bandits.
    This article was published only in the Lankaweb.com internet site: http://www.lankaweb.com/news/items/2012/07/28/it-is-great-stupidity-if-editors-news-editors-features-editors-senior-reporters-and-media-directors-of-national-newspapers-and-the-electronic-media-believe-that-media-is-above-reproach/
    There is a need for Sri Lanka Freelance Journalists domiciled in Sri Lanka and abroad to group up to fight this menace which is definitely the cause of Anti-Sri Lankan elements financed by INGO’S, NGO’s and Foreign Diplomatic missions operating in the Media and Press gateways in the National mass-media who for a bottle of Wisky or a few dollars or for a foreign trip are suppressing the aspirations and inspirations of the patriotic Freelance Journalist of Sri Lanka, but they pretend to show that they are the guardians of “The Freedom of Expression” to the would be powers. Our dedicated security forces have defeated the ruthless LTTE militarily in May 2009. But the war against the LTTE ideology and the anti-Sri Lanka media locally and internationally is still to be won by Sri Lanka. The Freelance Journalists and writers should contribute more content that bring out the TRUTH and make COMMENTS that tell the TRUTH of our Motherland in the defence of our “MAATHRUBOOMIYA”.

    The Island Editor takes himself for the best and publishes his own editorial and articles of those like Jehan Perera . Prabhath is neither patriotic nor pro or anti government. He thinks he is an independent Editor but he is neither here nor there. Only credit I give him is his wrting which is good.

  3. LankaLover Says:

    S**m bags like Jehan gets columns in Island to maintain his profile – yes agree!

    It looks like the “Comments” section of the articles are there as a template, but seems that Island has never allocated any resources to actively use it.

    On a similar note, I have made many comments on Daily Mirror articles and have never been published, because as it seems, they only publish what they want others to see.. In many occasions, I have seen trails of comments with bias (that I think what they want to promote), and not publishing any alternative views..

    You have to decide who is better.. The Island that never publish comments or the Daily Mirror that publish comments, which suits their own agenda!

    It is the same in the US and UK newspapers…. Write a comment critical of Obama or Cameron or their countries’ ‘foreign policies’, that comment will be taken off within hours from the web.

  5. AnuD Says:

    Vis8 is right. I simply try not to read Canadian news – web sites.

  6. Ratanapala Says:

    To get one’s comments into Island Newspaper, one needs to fall in line with Christian Prabhath Sahabandu’s Christian Agenda.

  7. Marco Says:

    Here’s an article in Foreign Affairs that is likely set ones blood boil.
    The comments section was open for awhile. My comment appeared for some 2 hours before comments section was closed
