    This show how scrappy our journalists are, simply looking any sensationalism to prop-up their work. They are no different to the so-called foreign journalists looking to make a name for themselves by reporting lies about our conflict. The fact that they are not challenged often allow them to getaway with lies.

    Justman , i see your fair point. but i want to add it is the sinhala press, once make a story and they all sinhala news paper repport without checking any true in the news.

    in this at least Deput HC did call , but many news are just made of this air , if there is a effective media control i mean some public body to question false stories then all thies lanka lies (truth) and London Modayas(acadamic) should be ignored by public.

    for instance when those students killed in trincomale they named as terrorists it

    May be jack has many other things to do in his job, one of them is collecting votes. there may be there is a truth in this tel call saga, jack may be forced to make this call by his tamil connections just before the local elections.

    no one can deny his links the most recent evidence is his propaganda stint with some tamil leaders who are linked to LTTE. so why not make a call if he can show that he cares ?

    as for ajan`s point of Modayas why dint you say exact translation of the word modayas..the right translation is Idiots.... does he think that only Tamil news papers are 100% right or all sinhales are Idiots as he says ?

    with regards to his claims of innocent youths unfortunately

    killed recently, people like him will say anything to stop the lies of the LTTE been exposed. these people will say even the youths killed while trying to attack the gosl forces were mere trying to play with guns when they were killed. so i leave the readers to decide who is trying to paint different picture

    Mates.... Straw will never talk to Mangala again as he no more foreign, something now to do with homely matters, I suppose. Mangala has to start all over again to do the `mangala` with his new british counterpart.
