quote of the day
Calling for fair coverage by the ruling party can be considered a reverse way of saying 'biased reporting' will not be allowed. That is a stance close to one that does not allow for any criticism of the government. As a result, people will feel less free to say what they feel and that could lead to further divisions within society.
