PKR infighting spills over into out-fighting

Pix: One Pakatan party is bending over backwards to appease and it ain’t PKR. Hartal has previously called Malaysia’s richest paper The Sniveling Star. We’d like to think that we had adequately deconstructed its articles to convince our blog readers as to in what way Star snivelled.

NUJ died a long time ago

Ssshhh! Cannot say the word ‘Muslim’ / Altantuya

A BBC story on Sept 14 reminds one of the Altantuya murder trial where two Unit Tindakan Khas (special forces) officers were found guilty by the court of killing Altantuya.

BN Govt Coming Down Hard On Freedom Of Expression

By Crankster It was quite subtle at first. They tried to block Malaysia Today around this time – exactly two years ago. You and I know how that went.
