Burmese still using foreign media for news about Burma.

Posted: 15 Nov 2007

"On a daily basis the state-run, New Light of Myanmar, accuses the BBC and VOA (Voice of America) of lying about the situation in Burma saying that they incited the monks to protest. Despite these accusations, the Burmese people appear to have chosen to listen to international news bulletins. 'If we gather to watch satellite channels in public places we risk ending up in prison for seven years.'" AKI, 15 November 2007.
