I wouldn’t be surprised if he was… given how the editorial content of an MCA-owned company has been allowed to be hijacked to serve the interests of the evangelical Christian opposition.
Mr Chairman of Star Media Group is the guy on the right – MCA’s Fu Ah Kiow. Forrest Gump doesn’t look like he is any match for the super sneaky evangelistas, does he?
The guy on the left, as many of you would already be aware, is Wong Chun Wai – the group CEO.
Now tell me, how easily do they (The Nest) run rings around you, eh, Mr Chairman Fu Ah Kiow?
For the equally clueless people in the Umno politburo, ask yourselves this:
Isn’t Malaysia’s most commercially successful media empire, a conglomerate that has its finger in every pie of the news industry – be it print, broadcast (radio), The Star TV and social media – under the control of a BN component party?
This being so, how is it that despite MCA’s ownership of the multi-billion ringgit Star Media Group, the BN suffered such negative public perception as to lose five states in GE12 and the popular vote in GE13?
BELOW: Visual clue
MCA main kayu tiga
Umno’s support for Himpunan Maruah Melayu is only a lot of fart (hot air) considering how dayus the Malay party is in putting up with being cuckolded by the MCA.
And by the way, do note that Star Media Group has been expanding and expanding – just like Hannah Yeoh’s waistline. Yup, the Nest of Evangelistas is flourishing alright.
The EvangeliSTAR – the group’s flagship newspaper – has a circulation almost quadruple (4x) that of the NST.
J-Star‘s readership is half Chinese, a quarter Malay and a quarter Indian – see pie chart below.
Umno should brace itself for a greater defection of urban and young Malay voters (who read The J-Star) from the BN ruling coalition come GE14. Tumbanglah engko dalam PRU nanti dan memang padan muka!
Regime sorely lacking in dignity
If Umno wants to recover some sorely missing maruah and mojo, it should first practise meritocracy.
Take back the Malay-majority seats from MCA to contest in the next general election and let MCA prove its merit by confronting the DAP in the Chinese-majority seats. I do not see MCA putting up any real fight against DAP.
BELOW: Ooooh, the MCA prez got 20 views on YouTube. It’s an improvement from the clip I highlighted in my last posting which had 10 views.
It is so degrading that MCA requires crutches and begs for rural seats when it is fully able-bodied and owns the biggest and richest media empire spanning all the urban areas.
Oi ! MCA, get your evangeliSTARs to election campaign for your irrelevant party lah.
BELOW: At least the “Umno mouthpiece” Utusan doesn’t bite the hand that feeds it
