Kudos to Wong Choong Mei

I congratulate reporter Wong Choon Mei who resigned from Malaysiakini after taking responsibility for a report in the news portal which associated the Deputy Prime Minister to a manifesto he did not issue.

I am sorry that she lost her job. But she did the right thing. She is a living proof that at least a few reporters in Malaysia have pride and dignity.

Don't we all know of a shameless editor who refused to quit even after he was caught with his pants down for plagiarising a writer he idolises.

He gave all sorts of other reasons to quit. That happens only in Malaysia.

Yup, agreed. However, I think the person who should resign is Steven Gan, Malaysiakini's editor in chief. Wong is just a small fish mah ... :)

I did not see and heard the management of Malaysiakini making any stand. It should also shoulder the responsibility of the blunder because it has taken her and such a rookie it should be more careful.

Dear all,

I am not going to publish any comment which contains wild accusations against anyone. Please be reminded.

And Nstman, plagiarism is professional not personal.

Salam, Steven Gan sepatutnya memohon maaf dan letak jawatan. Jika hentam orang lain Malaysiakini cepat mendesak orang letak jawatan. Steven Gan harus berani menulis dan berani berhenti.

Saudara Anon dari Kedah,

Saya minta maaf kerana tidak dapat menyiarkan komen anda kerana ianya ada unsur-unsur perkauman. Sebagai moderator blog ini, saya yang akan masuk penjara kerana menyiarkan komen seperti itu, bukan anda.

Lagipun, Malaysia adalah sebuah negara berbilang kaum, marilah kita hormat-menghormati satu sama lain.
