“Kebencian Dr M untungkan DAP.”
- Zulkiflee Bakar, Utusan Malaysia
COMMENT | A young Utusan Malaysia factotum recently told me that the Malay daily could do a lot for Harapan. Utusan, he claimed, could spread the Harapan message to their readership and perhaps even give coverage to the DAP. All of this was brought upon by the reality that Utusan is now in the crapper and begging the current regime for a bailout.
The recent plea by the Utusan faction of the National Union of Journalists for some benefice by the Bersatu grand poobah is an extremely funny read, considering the tone of their coverage. Before the historic May 9th win, Umno and their proxies were hell-bent on leather attempting to demonise anyone “colluding” with the DAP.
I asked him jokingly if Utusan would ever consider apologising to Lim Kit Siang and the DAP, and was surprised that this young man gave me a look as if he was seriously considering it...
