Reading without knowing the facts is dangerous

Published:  |  Modified:

COMMENT | Several days ago, I was riding in a Grab to my first appointment of the day. Most of the time, I usually have pleasant conversations with the Grab drivers that drive me around. But this morning, it was a little bit different. I wouldn’t call the conversation a bad one, but it did cause me to feel extremely irritated.

It started out quite normal. She, a slightly elderly woman who I assume to be in her 50s, started asking me about my work. I’m usually honest in my small talk and so I said I produced news and documentary content for a living. She seemed excited and immediately asked me for my opinion about the alleged sex video involving Economic Affairs Minister Mohamed Azmin Ali.

She said it was disgusting that a veteran politician and cabinet minister could do such an act and that she hopes he would get sacked. She continued with her rant, saying that Malaysian politicians all love to have sex scandals and that they are all a bunch of sick and disgusting lot of people. Okay, aunty!..
