    AMICUS Monday, 06 September 2010 09:37 AM

    WHAT THE MEDIA SHOULD DO IS BLACK HIM OUT OF COVERAGE ALTOGETHER, AS HE WISHES TO HANKER AFTER PUBLICITY WHETHER ADVERSE OR NOT.

    citizen1 Monday, 06 September 2010 04:04 PM

    He must spend all his time trying to figure out new and wonderful ways of provoking publc response....regardless of negative or positive.
    It's time that the media gave him the boot.

    arshad Monday, 06 September 2010 10:12 AM

    Do not get scared DM, public is with you. do not cover any events he attends and see he is exposed of all his wrong doings

    Smart Aleck Monday, 06 September 2010 11:34 AM

    The Media helped to build this Joker's image. Just blank him out. He will become History.

    H.de Silva Tuesday, 07 September 2010 01:34 AM

    Daily Mirror ... fortunately you were not tied to trees!

    optimist Monday, 06 September 2010 12:53 PM

    yes. IT is Impartial. But we have to get explained the meaning of Impartial.

    Geronimo Monday, 06 September 2010 01:13 PM

    Or rather, there is nothing anybody will WANT to do about it as these are orders coming orm the TOP!

    Rohith Monday, 06 September 2010 01:51 PM

    Only the media is to be blamed for giving undue publicity for this joker.

    Yumee Monday, 06 September 2010 07:05 AM

    shavantha Monday, 06 September 2010 07:06 AM

    hear he goes again

    suwimal Monday, 06 September 2010 07:18 AM

    He is above the law, vicariously. Otherwise, how can he order the journalists to leave a public place?

    Anu Monday, 06 September 2010 07:19 AM

    Yes, He will speak only to boneless media institutions who attempts to promote him as a star. Never mind DM, keep your work impartial as before.

    Leslie Monday, 06 September 2010 07:25 AM

    Oh! What a character. Is he atrocious or simply stupid?

    Yehiya Monday, 06 September 2010 07:32 AM

    Its a joke. Fool is fool.

    Chandika Monday, 06 September 2010 07:41 AM

    And the beauty of it is that there is nothing 'anyone' can do about it!

    Sunethra Monday, 06 September 2010 08:47 AM

    Its only a drama !

    The tru Lankan Monday, 06 September 2010 08:52 AM

    Ranil Monday, 06 September 2010 02:45 PM

    DM.......We do not need Mervyn in the news anyway.

    dont worry about him. let him be in oblivian.

    Sanath R Monday, 06 September 2010 09:03 AM

    The best is to ignore and not give him any publicity on both printed and electronic media and avoid covering any event that he is involved.
