“I think perhaps the thing that people are responding to most is the effort FBC has put into making its programs accessible to all, through subtitles, as well as its focus on developing local programming. Whether it’s joining in the laughs with the cast of the wildly popular Bati ni Tanoa, learning iTaukei and Hindi from Wasea Bhasha, or following the debate on 4 the Record, these programs are resonating with ordinary people. As Prime Minister, I’ve also been impressed with the short segments FBC has created to promote national pride, unity and love for our country. I’ve found that these little things – like the “I love Fiji” ads – can have a big impact. I know I’m not alone in feeling a huge sense of pride every time I see a young person look into the camera and say, “I’m proud to be a Fijian.” - Bainimarama on FBC celebrating its 60 years of operation in Fiji
4 THE RECORD: Bainimarama had been provided questions before hand and Riyaz Khaiyum was giving instructions at every break; Nand and Delaibatiki had ear phones to Riyaz Khaiyum during interview
From a Fiji SUN insider to Fijileaks: "The interview by Frank on FBC titled "For the Record". The questions to be asked was given by Riyaz Khaiyum before the interview and Frank had already known the questions.The two who were asking the questions Nemani Delaibatiki and Nand had ear phones. Riyaz Khaiyum was giving instructions at every break."
"...Secrecy is the keystone of all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy... censorship. When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, 'This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know,' the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives." --Robert A. Heinlein, -If This Goes On
