The Star published the photos below.
What is going on INSIDE The Star?
Both photos taken from The Star. The photo on the right was published in The Star after Tony Pua had a falling out with the paper over their refusal to publish a DAP advertisement that did not carry the ad creator’s name.
However, the paper junked its own advertising guidelines when it published the ’10 Most Powerful Women in Malaysia’ advertorial that gave no indication of who had placed the ad. Some industry observers suspect that the Rosmah ad was an inside job by The Star.
Below is photo that The Star ran of Shen Yee Aun when his exposed the DAP cybertroopers network as well as photos carried yesterday in the MCA-owned paper of Wanita Umno contenders Shahrizat Abdul Jalil and Azalina Othman.
Ask – why?
Blog House president Syed Akbar Ali described it as a “rather grotesque picture“.
Just as articles are not featured at random neither are photos are chosen suka-suka hati.
Why did The Star choose to use the photo above of Wanita Umno chief Shahrizat Abdul Jalil?
It’s important to take note of these kind of editorial decisions that reveal the real feelings inside the MCA-controlled newspaper.
Below is Shahrizat looking her best. Doubtless it’s a studio posed and touched-up portrait. Her ‘normal’ shots look somewhere in between, i.e. not as glamorous but most certainly not as maliciously as The Star purposely depicted above.
Now imagine the Umno politicians being given the Shahrizat treatment by The J-Star every day – one or the other of the BN pollies – for the next five years while the paper lavishes TLC on the favoured (exalted evangelista) pollies from Pakatan.
