YOU CAN'T GET AWAY WITH SERVING A BRAHMIN CHICKEN (ask MAS) BUT YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH GRABBING LAND FROM THE POOR AND GET STAR BILLING (ask STARMETRO) FOR THE GRAB.
Today, into the Mexican Fart Chambers, I put Star's Wong Chun Wai...but it is his choice to empower the reporter cum photographer Elan Perumal, to replace him.
I have never been a Star reader until lately to protest against NST. I was beginning to enjoy reading Verapandian and Marina's Musings. However, today I might think of migrating again. Not that it will bring down their stocks, but like Marina said we think we are the silent majority because we beleive that.....not anymore though.
Today, STAR glorified the land-grabber, the obnoxious Datuk Zakaria Mat Deros, beloved of the Menteri Besar, and canonised his efforts for doing something for the environment. It is just like raping somebody and then donating a chastity belt to the victim. He was shown "tending" to plants in his garden. Star even reported that this character's love for nature has led him to want to plant a few hundred plants around his soon-to-be-ready house at Kampung Idaman. Is this the same palace that was built without authorisation?
See, HE COULD GET AWAY WITH IT! and the Star has the story.
Hantu perched on my shoulder whispered something cruel into my ears: Zorro, those plants came from the council nursery...some from his machais....few from Port Klang cronies.
Was he really tending to his garden with his wife (are those gardening attire?) or was it a Star's cheap PR promotion shot to fill the space? I just wonder. Everyday has its mysteries. The stunts some people pull to sell papers. Twinke (Star) whilst you can while the Sun gives you the ability to.
Question: Is the Star so impoverished news-wise that it has to choose so loosely?Tiew!
