The sad, sad KPI problem of NST…

Ouch… NST needs to send its reporters + editors to deep refresher course.

Me a layman also can see no way Malaysia can have such a heart attack drop of 65.3% in tourist arrival for the first 3 months of 2010. Read its edition of 9 April, 2010 (page 2) “Malaysia among cheapest countries to visit” for some fantastic fancies

Aiyoyo…. use your commons sense lar you NST journo guys and gals…

How can Malaysians trust le mainstream newspapers if NST blindly commits silly a blunder like this against its hardworking New Economic Model 1Malaysia government? <cough, cough, ahem…>

Not one, but two factual errors in one news report! hmmmm…. makes one wonder if the newspaper has something against the one helming the second highest national income earning ministry contributing to Malaysia’s national income.

My hands are itching to give a nice present for readers who can spot the other mistake in the NST report.

My dear minister of communication and culture, Mr Rais Yatim, please could you memantau your one of your oldest mainstream newspaper to do its job properly ie simple fact check with source?

We don’t want the trustworthy cyber news to completely dominate the Malaysian information sphere now, do we, sir?

Malaysia Today editor Raja Petra Kamarudin RPK arrested under ISA

Got this news sms:

12/9: Malaysia Today editor Raja Petra Kamarudin has been arrested under ISA; Home Ministry issues 3 newspapers show cause letters/The Star

What’s very interesting is that Home Ministry also issues 3 newspapers show cause letters – Sin Chew Daily, The Sun and Suara Keadilan.  Mmmmmm….

And so this question this banana would like to pose to our top, big, powerful leaders in the government:

“What’s up with Malaysia now? Where to? Forward or backward?”

Mylivingwall has published an SOS earlier on this:

Joint Press Statement by National Alliance of Bloggers and Centre for Policy Initiatives

SOS on Raja Petra Kamarudin to Fellow Malaysians

During the last few days there has been an ominous and increasing crescendo of messages – written and verbal – indicating the imminent arrest and detention of fellow blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin under the Internal Security Act (ISA).

Will the Parliament debate on the ISA when it reconvenes after Hari Raya?
