Teresa Kok, Malaysia’s seventh most powerful woman (konon), is the latest guest on The Star‘s Cafe Latte chat show.
Teresa blogged today that the panelists (Saifuddin Abdullah, PKR Penampang MP Darrel Leiking and former head of MCA think tank Fui K Soong) generally agreed that the GE13 results are not a Chinese tsunami (see screenshot below).
Previous guests on The Star‘s ‘Cafe Latte’ programme were Rajiv Risyakaran (Hannah Yeoh’s former personal assistant) to discuss the topic of National Unity post GE13, and ash blonde ‘Bangsar Boy’ Niki Cheong (its former reporter whom The Star now bills as “senior social media analyst”, konon) in a group discussion to deny that the social media is partisan or controlled by Pakatan.
What will The Star deny next?
Tidbit: Dzireena Mahadzir – the only Malay among those holding The Star‘s 26 top editorial jobs – has recently been confirmed in her position as Clove editor after a number of blogs highlighted that she was only serving as an acting editor.
