English-language media – particularly The Sun Daily and Malaysiakini – are clearly showing their pro-DAP hyper partisanship.
Meanwhile, The J-Star too has been subtly backing DAP — in part and at critical junctures. (This paper can’t appear too overtly favourable to DAP as it is owned by MCA although its Chinese editorial staff probably do not deviate much from the ‘95 percent’ voting bias.
The Sun’s March 25 article headlined ‘Tunship proposed for Kit Siang’ has not aged well at all.
This dumb proposal of a Tunship for DAP’s ideologue-in-chief was aired in the paper a little more than three weeks ago.
Kit Siang is now being investigated by the police, again.
His supporters really do not have their feet planted on terra firma as they seem to lack any inkling of how strong the Malay negative sentiment against him.
The pro-DAP slant of English-language media is hardly helping non Malays understand political reality on the ground.
Who are the Malaysiakini readers?
Paid subscribers who comment in Malaysiakini would be fairly reflective of the portal’s overall readership.
Take the almost 180 comments in the Malaysiakini Most Commented article today — refer to screengrab above.
Malaysiakini‘s highly vocal readers were there taking potshots at Dr Kamarul Zaman Yusoff.
Now, who is Kamarul? He is among the top targets of Hannah’s hate — see her tweet below.
Ergo, Malaysiakini readers spewing vitriol
at Kamarul are Hannah Yeoh fanboys — see also screengrab of the website’s Most Commented news reports yesterday evening (below).
Most Commented Story #1 is ‘MP criticises hero’s welcome for PM after US trip’. The MP referred to by the headline is DAP’s Segambut YB Hannah Yeoh dissing the reception for Ismail Sabri organized at the airport.
Toxic remarks about the PM’s return from Washington DC were egged on by Hannah.
The second-most commented article in Malaysiakini yesterday was the same aforementioned one about Kamarul which was similarly instigated by DAP Segambut.
The third-most commented Malaysiakini article was titled ‘Shop owner fined RM3k for placing alcoholic and soft drinks on same rack’.
Story #3 derived from a presser by DAP Beruas MP Ngeh Koo Ham.
The fourth most commented Malaysiakini article was titled ‘I was quiet in Harapan govt after Dr M rebuked me, says Pua’.
Story #4 concerned DAP Damansara MP Tony Pua.
All four of Malaysiakini’s Most Comnented articles in the above screengrab were initiated by DAP parliamentarians.
English-language media propping up the party are catering narrowly to the DAP base.
Together they’re an echo chamber because the people within this DAP environmental domain are mostly either ignorant or oblivious to how Malay speakers feel about issues contained within the five (four from Malaysiakini, one from Sun) articles cited above.
