So, Malaysiakini journalist resigns over Najib ‘manifesto’. And Steven Gan immediately said,
Ketua pengarang Malaysiakini, Steven Gan said berkata, pihaknya kesal dengan insiden tersebut, sambil menambah bahawa laporan itu tidak sepatutnya disiarkan.
“Ia adalah salah pertimbangan yang serius dan kami menerima peletakan jawatannya,” kata Gan.
So, the issue is settled.
But….compare this to the no balls cerpen writer. He kept silent for days and days, allowing every parties including the terasa pedas Teresa Kok to claw on the issue. Finally, he said, ‘Cerpen tiada kaitan dengan Teresa’ on Malaysiakini and claimed it is a creative piece. Hoi! Next time don’t let people debate, argue, ber-forum over it until all hell break loose baru nak buka mulut tu lah!
If one is sincere, then, clear the situation early, issue an apology and we can all get on with life. However, we know how ‘they’ work. Like the Ahmad Ismail issue. He let his shits hit the fan, disappear, caused Pak Lah to make excuses for him, get DPM to apologise on his behalf and finally he said, he has been misquoted and finally Tan Hoon Cheng masuk ISA.
Meluatlah…It is the dragging feet till koyak rabak baru nak cari lubang keluar ikut pintu belakang type of ‘gentleman-ship’ that I cannot stand. Black say black, white say white, don’t become bisu until shit hits the fan.
DAP is organising a forum on the cerpen issue, details found on Malaysiakini, and you know what? I wish YB Lim Kit Siang will invite RockyBru and Chamil to be there.
