Memang Melayu hilang di S’gor Times

February 14, 2012 at 8:58 pm 17 comments

Selangor Times ialah akhbar mingguan negeri paling kaya Malaysia.

Jilid terkini Selangor Times begitu syok sendiri memaparkan gambar besar Adun Subang Jaya Hannah Yeoh pada muka depan.

Inilah cara duit Selangor dihabiskan. Dengan mempromo personality cult bagi orang kesayangan menteri besar. Sebelum ini, pernah exco negeri Elizabeth Wong ditonjolkan sebagai calendar girl Selangorku.

Pemimpin-pemimpin DAP menuduh wartawan media arus perdana sebagai “pelacur” dan para penyokong Pakatan mengiyakan ‘hakikat’ (kononnya) itu dengan begitu lantang sekali.

Manakala penyokong-penyokong BN tak perlulah menggelar wartawan media Pakatan dengan apa-apa nama kesat.

Sebabnya kalau tugas mereka setakat buat ‘public relations’ bagi politikus-politikus Pakatan, itu kerja bidang pengiklanan, pemasaran dan perhubungan awam, bukannya kerja pemberita.

Selangor Times diterbitkan dalam bahasa Inggeris dan bahasa Cina.

Ia tidak diterbitkan dalam bahasa Melayu.

Edisi bahasa Inggeris minggu ini mengandungi 24 halaman. Barisan wartawan/penulis yang diberikan byline dalam Selangor Times (Feb 10-12) adalah seperti berikut:

  • Gan Pei Lingseorang bekas wartawan The Nut Graph
  • Alvin Yap
  • Basil Foo
  • Brenda Ch’ng
  • Lee Choon Fai
  • Gho Chee Yuan
  • Chong Loo Wah
  • Derek Kok
  • Edwin Yapp
  • Dominic Luk
  • K.L. Chan (pengarang Selangor Times)
  • James Ang (copy editor/penyunting)

Satu-satunya nama orang editorial yang bukan berbangsa Cina ialah Neville Spykerman, memegang jawatan ‘pengarang komuniti’. (Boleh dirujuk capaian di sini)

Nama wartawan Melayu sebenarnya langsung tidak ada.

Untuk edisi Feb 10, Sharyn Shufiyan yang merupakan cicit (great-grand daughter) Tunku Abdul Rahman telah menyumbangkan sebuah rencana kolum. Namun Sharyn sekadar penulis jemputan kerana nama beliau tidak ada pun dalam Selangor Times minggu sebelum itu — dalam edisi Feb 3, penulis jemputan ialah Tricia Yeoh.

Kalau nama-nama tersenarai di atas ialah untuk Selangor Times terbitan bahasa Inggeris, tak payahlah cerita tentang siapa kakitangan Selangor Times bahasa Cina.

    James Ang, bekas penyunting di New Straits Times yang bertaraf jutawan itu, adalah kawan baik saya. Pasti akhbar Selangor Times disunting dengan baik. Namun ia tetap suara pembangkang dan pembangkang di Malaysia memang suka kelentong dan tidak boleh dipercayai.

    Orang Selangor mana cakap melayu, depa semua cakap omputeh dan cina saja. Blog Helen pun tak dijengahnya kerana selalu sangat tulis dlm BM.

    Okay, that’s shocking. Or is it the population of Malays now decreasing to 30% in Selangor right now? But they have that Buletin Selangor or something like that jugak kan –> but this one is monthly published. Or mungkin Malays PKR and PAS use different methods; like berceramah every 2-3 days. Jimat sikit kut.

      That Selangor Times employ only Chinese “reporters” and have no BM edition are not shocking, really. Many people know DAP’s line and DAP seems to be controlling the PR Government in Selangor.

      But is there any proof that “the population of Malays now decreasing to 30% in Selangor right now”? If it is stated in the Statistics Dept 2010 Census Report, one has to read the figures and the classification closely, and know the basis of classification.

      The fact that the Dept lumps the Malays together with the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak in the overall population figures, and one has to deduce the number of Malays from some other figures mentioned elsewhere in the Report, may lead to wrong figures used as a basis and to incorrectness in the statement “30% (Malays) in Selangor right now”. The Chinese have been complaining of declining birth figures for a long time – as Helen Ang has also said. Could their figures have increased despite that? How come? If not, which community increased in population if it is true that the Malays have decreased to 30%?

      The 2010 Census methodology has been questioned several times. There are the citizens and non-citizens categories, foreign workers and tourists. Were ICs or passports demanded or recorded by those interviewed by the census takers? The Chinese would always say they are Chinese irrespective of status in the country but the Indonesian workers will not say they are Malays but declare that they are Indonesians. Could such a situation have affected the figures?

        Malays decreased by 30% is a mere ‘cakap berlapik’ of mine. Please accept my humble apology for the ‘no where’ fact I’ve stated. And the fact that Malays lumped with other natives in Selangor is not the issue as there is only small percentage of orang asli in Selangor. (I still need the fact for that though). And the number of Malay population will keep growing because Malays dont have big issues with how many children they want. I dont know about other races. But the last para that you wrote might be a slightly true.

    I am James Ang. We employed two pure Bumis when we first started, but sadly they couldnt take the heat. One left for greener pastures, the other went to an old folk’s home for bumis called NST. So Helen, pse check your facts before shooting your mouth off about pure Bumis not being represented in the paper.

    James,

    The listed names are fact and your S’gor Times editorial make-up speaks for itself.

      James, I am curious to hear your response to Helen or you will just brush it aside like what all this alternative medias do when a Malaysian do actually speak his/her mind other than just serving a political agenda. Please enlighten me.

      If James can do it in the newspaper company, what about companies in other industries– companies like TNB, Petronas, Telekom etc that employ chinese (albeit probably token chinese) to work? Those Chinese people could easily leave, carry their hidden grudges and then start creating stories similar to James.

      “Couldn’t take the heat”– So the bumis can’t take the pressure James or his co-racial workers apply or is it about the newspaper biz in general? If it’s the latter, then it seems like James expects they won’t succeed even in ‘greener pastures’. If it’s the former, did James single out the bumis and pressure them in a discriminating manner, forcing them to leave in a case of constructive dismissal?

      I have seen James’ attitude in many other industries. Even with with admirable credentials, Bumi candidates/worker would be downgraded by James. People like James would say their experience/academic background is ‘irrelevant’ to his company’s interests. Suddenly, attitude and networking would be the top priorities for his company.

      Of course, this is NOT isolated to the Chinese, but since the chinese are more prominent in middle management roles in Malaysia, they tend to be viewed as the primary perpetrators of such discrimination.

      Would removing NEP make these hidden grudges disappear?

      I reckon no.

      This is an intractable problem, yet common in multi racial societies.

      I refer to Lee Hwok Aun’s writing:–

      http://asiapacific.anu.edu.au/newmandala/2011/09/29/malaysia-poverty-reduction-or-affirmative-action/

      I really admire people who can write dispassionately about a subject. I can see Hwok Aun is apolitical and keen on a solution, not just using the issue for political mileage or internet infamy.

    Some bumiputeras are still too stupid that they don’t know the chinese political games, economic games and social games.
