Fiji newspaper digs at interim govt with lead story: Man gets on bus
Fri, 17 Apr 2009 12:00a.m.
One of Fiji's leading newspapers is poking fun at its interim government's tight media restrictions with a front-page story about a man getting on a bus.
The Fiji Daily Post story on Wednesday read, "In what is believed to be the first reported incident of its kind - a man got on a bus yesterday."
"It was easy he said, I just lifted up one foot and then the other and I was on."
It follows the country's military ruler Frank Bainimarama posting censors in the offices of newspapers and radio and television stations, and ordering foreign journalists off shore.
