      1. The state media belong to the public!!!!!It is maintained out of the tax money of the general public!!!! Therefore it does not belong to a single individual or a group of individuals!!!!1

    1. yes, there’s no wrong with that. If Sirasa support UNP it’s ok, if Derana supports UPFA it’s very much acceptable.
      But when these state media support a political party (mind you not the government I repeat a political party not the government)it’s totally wrong as these state media are run by the money of all tax payers of this country who belonged to all political parties.
      Mind you that the government is not contesting for this election but the political party which runs the government contests.
      But private media are run by what they earn not public money. Therefor they can support any party they need as it’s their own decision (like my car, my petrol). this is the difference between state media being partial & private media being partial.

  1. Did you See Dzone…How they are thinking….
    People who support Mr also thinking stste media as Their Private Propaty….
    Very Sad situation

  2. Public Media shuld b in d nutral positn.. They cnt suport 2 anyone.. So ths s a gud decisn…
    They’v 2 ban ITN also…
    MR Thnkng tht all srilankns r fool..
    Ths s not lanka hospital or Transasia hotel 2 suport MR…

  3. So finaly he did it. This power was given to commisioner by Constitution for the purpose of ensuring free and fair election. According to Article 104B only Rupavahini & SLBC are bound by thes orders. Due to some odd reason ITN has been excluded. This is a good effort to prevent abuse of public property for their election purposes by the political party in power. Weldone Commissioner.

  4. He should not have banned them cz those programs draw more and more votes to Sarath Fonseka!!!! Sri lanka isnt a land of deafs,blinds or morons.

  5. actually Rupawahin coperation and state media acting onbhalf of govt needs, even no point to watching news. if you want to watch balance news its better to watch live @8 from Swarnawahini.
    we belived we need polititcal but what ever do there should be a democracy . recently the managing program of rupawahini will leads the reduce the intrest of wating of it.
