The paper that cares is back!

The paper that cares is back. The Malay Mail has a new look and it comes out in the afternoon, really after noon. Could not resist the temptation of watching Rockybru belting out Ramli Sarip's number at the hip and happening relaunch party at BSC Wednesday night. To Rocky, his trusted lieutenants and the foot soldiers, all the best.

Datuk A Kadir Jasin and Datuk Johan Jaafar, chairman of Media Prima, entertain questions from former Business Times journo, Adlin M Zabri. Foreground, KL Mayor, Datuk Ahmad Fuad Ismail.


Who would have thought a boy from Kampung Melayu in Ipoh would turn out to be a media mogul? Former BA of Malaysia (BAM) secretary, Datuk Mohamed Al-Amin Abdul Majid, who was constantly a subject of loose cannon's criticism circa 1998, is the man behind Malay Mail and BernamaTV...hmmm. We might differ on many issues pertaining to badminton but Al Amin always has time for loose cannon!

Loose cannon likes the masthead

The chief Rockybru aka Ahirudin Attan under the spotlight, as usual

Ex-Malay Mail journo Randhir Singh is perhaps introducing this cameraman to the famous Other Thots author, blogger and former NSTP co-owner, Datuk A Kadir Jasin

Kadir Jasin must be wondering what might have been. He must have been pondering his stupid mistakes and excesses which led to his being sacked as NSTP supremo and co-owner. Now kadir is a head honcho of a midget organisation called Berita Publishing. Kadir, you are the author of of your own fate. You brutalise your staff and put incompetent staff in top positions. You have paid dearly for your transgressions. Happy suffering, Kadir.

Who is Kadir Jasin? he is over..he should spend more time with the cucu ratherthan making comments on politics when he had no ball do when he was heading nstp

Kadir Jasin has and will always be a coward. He has no balls to speak of. He was able to promote fear during his reign of terror because of his perceived close association with Dr Mahathir. In short, he used Mahathir's name to spread terror and hound oppoonents. Once he lost his power, he was spat at. Power is always a perception. Once you are stripped of power, perceptibly or otherwise, you are finished. Just look at Mahathir. Once he wielded absolute power with the apparatus of the state machinery, namely army, judiciary at his disposal. Once he lost control of the heavy artillery, he was just a solitary man. The same with Kadir. I remembered a few months before he was ousted, his close allies started deserting him. Even his close sycophant Ahmad Talib. If I were kadir, I would slink back into my cocoon to wonder what might have been. Anyway, the less said about Kadir the better. This guy is finished. A pathetic figure of derison, hunkered down in a bunker of delusion he created. Perhaps his greatest achievement was when he was voted malaysia's fifth hated figure by Pakatan. And of course who could forget Anwar's ultimate tribute: Kadir cant write two lines to save his own skin. Need I say more?
