    I guess this comment sums it all - " Before Pakatan ruins its own future, perhaps it should take a retrospective look at the attributes that put the parties together back then, i.e. democracy, clean governance and reform, and resolutely make over."

    It is eye-boggling to see how a so-called leader handle his party internal problem...

    The political opponent is rubbing their hands in glee. They can't wait for PKR and Pakatan to implode. Who is to blame? Some are born great, some have greatness thrust upon them and some are ........... just rubbish.

    AFAIK, Sinchew was never owned by MCA. Nanyang Siang Pau was but sold to the owners of Sinchew. So, they are now sister publications.

    That's why they didn't sell it to you.

    Sin Chew together with ALL the Chinese papers in this country is owned by this Fuchow guy from Sibu, Tiong Hiew King. He is the founder and owner of Rimbunan Hijau ..... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiong_Hiew_King

    His media empire extended to Hong Kong and he is probably the last person you want to mess with !! He acquired the English daily, The South China Morning Post in HK during the time of the late Deng Xiaoping. He also bought the highest circulation and most influencial Chinese papers, Ming Pao in HK after the era of Deng Xiaoping. These are examples of his exceptional rapport with the PRC leadership, past and present. He probably had donated close to a billion in RM to charity in Malaysia and PRC.

    I am not too sure whether Sin Chew is impartial of bias. However, please remember one fact and never never forget it --> Before the era of internet and when ALL doors were closed to DAP, Chinese papers like Sin Chew, Nanyang, Kwang Ming, etc were the only platform for DAP to have publicity and told their sides of story to the Chinese community.

    I will say it loud and clear, DAP owe a big favor to Chinese newspapers in the past 40 years.

    I forgive people who don't know the closed relationship between DAP and Chinese papers because of their obvious background. Just like I wouldn't know who own Tamil newspapers as I don't know how to read Tamil..


    p/s : Honestly, I don't like the present Sin Chew compares to the old time. They are just too big and no different voice that I can hear. Fyi, the circulation of Sin Chew alone is HIGHER than all the combined circulations of Malay newspapers.

    Before I forget

    - Sin Chew was instructed to close down during the ops lalang, apanama time. They were perceived as too friendly to opposition notably DAP and accused of "sensationalize" the Chinese vernacular school's issues !!

    - The lady reporter who reported an idiot in Penang who uttered the word "pendatang". She was later detained under ISA because your 1gomen wanted to "protect" her.... She is a journalist from Sin Chew..

    As far as I know, it's Robert Kuok's Kerry Group that took over SCMP and continue to manage the paper in HK; The Foochow guy with a penchant for green tie has never controlled SCMP before.

    Selangorians should read alternative views espoused, such as this from one of my favourite Malay MP on his take on the MB saga ;

    You are right, my mistake.

    South China Morning Post was acquired by Robert Kuok with the consent of Deng Xiaoping. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_China_Morning_Post

    I did not browse the internet (Wiki) on SCMP when I wrote. My memory fouled me as I mixed up between this two influencial Malaysians in PRC.

    Tiong bought the Ming Pau in HK and subsequently own the Ming Pau in Vancouver, Toronto, San Francisco and New York.

    Thanks... I knew about this because I subscribe to SCMP in my Jakarta office (arrive late afternoon) and also because Kerry Group also controls the Coke bottling franchise for northern China and those days I always meet their management in Shanghai for business review meetings... (the other franchises for Coke China are owned by The Swire Group for Southern China (Swire also own Cathay Pacific Airlines) and Shenmei Group for Shanghai Valley owned by the Communist Party of China)

    Oh, if I remember correctly.... Sin Chew was caught with their pants down by Steven Gan, chief editor of malaysiakini.com for doctoring an official photograph of the Malaysian government by removing Anwar Ibrahim from the photo after he was sacked from the government in 1998, of course it issued an official apology but its reputation and integrity since then has been badly tarnished. Its dislike for anything Anwar Ibrahim including PKR is well-known...


    p.s. Henry - thanks too... I am aware of Rimbunan Hijau set-up... saja gatal mahu tanya...

    Bring it on, the state election !!

    Look at what he is doing to someone who had helped him during his tough time. Since he can do such things to someone who helped him the time he needed the most, imagine what else he can’t do and he won’t do to others in the coalition party.. !!
