Journalism is built on trust. A journalist who fabricates his report commits journalism's biggest sin. In the US, such a journalist is sacked, shamed and shunned.
Here in Malaysia, however, he continues to write about the goodness of his own existence. Today in the Sunday Times, he came out of hiding to write [I was told] about how this goodness of his is somehow related to our Merdeka.
I wonder if you read the column today. I was told that he still hasn't come clean about the sin he committed, the stories he fabricated for his June 11 column.
But even if he owns up and say a thousand apologies would you believe another word he writes, knowing that journalism is built on trust?

Sunday is sabbath. I don't read papers. But I don't read New Spin Times on any day of the week. If you're referring to Datuk Haji Kalimullah Hassan Masheerul Hassan Esq., Merdeka can be something else. By the way, i think KJ sold over 2 million Ecm Libra shares when it shot past Rm1 after announcing reversed takeover of Avenua Asset Capital.ReplyDelete
Bru, this is a Sunday Star report. Was it also publish by New Spin Times. This PM SIL is a load of trouble man!ReplyDelete
Delegate demands apology from Khairy
MCA Youth delegates took aim at Umno Youth deputy chief Khairy Jamaluddin and hit out at him for his remark that Barisan Nasional component parties will take advantage of a weak Umno.
Negri Sembilan delegate Siow Koi Voon in his debate demanded an apology from Khairy for his remark which had not only hurt the feelings of the MCA but also that of the Chinese community.
He urged Khairy to personally explain to MCA and the community of his intention when he made his remark.
“We want your apology, Khairy,” said Siow in English, to thunderous applause.
He said Khairy should know history better – MCA had stood firmly behind Umno all the while, singling the Umno crisis in the 1980s.
Memang saya org jahil, tapi saya dengar Islam ada ajar bahawa orang yang paling bahaya ialah orang yang enggan menyesali kesalahannya dan enggan meminta maaf. Tak ada pulak saya dengar ada orang kata bahawa Allah mengajar kita hanya memohon ampun kepada-Nya shj.
Malah selepas Allah mengampuni semua dosa kita di Akhirat nanti, saya dengar orang cerita, kesalahan kita kepada manusia yang tidak dimaafkan masih tetap bertapuk dalam gudang dosa kita.
Lebih bahaya lagi ialah orang yang sentiasa nampak dia baik semuanya dan rajin sangat bertanya, apa salah aku?
Buat apa kita heboh sana-sini kita tolong orang? Tak kiralah tolong apa pun, termasuk membebaskan dia dari penjara tekanan jiwa dia.
Kalu ketagih sangat nak menceceh sana-sini tentang apa yang kita rasa baik tentang diri kita termasuk menolong orang, tolonglah diri kita dulu dengan membersihkan apa yang terlalu ramai orang nampak tak bersih. Kekotoran berlori-lori di badan kita lebih baik dibersihkan dahulu daripada menceritakan yang kita rasa bagus tentang diri kita yang kebaikannya jauh lebih sedikit dari sekati!
Kalau kita reti menulis, gunakanlah kebolehan kita untuk semua perkara yang elok dan tentunya tidak termasuk memuji dan menghebahkan kebaikan diri sendiri!
Macam bagus sangat!
Tuan Rocky, tok sah lah dok banding budak ni dengan wartawan barat yang menipu tu. Tak layak kot. Kalu di barat, dia ni jadi budak pejabat di pejabat surat khabar saja.ReplyDelete
Tapi di negara kita ni, pandai mengampu, pandai hemoi, pandai putar belit naik la.
Mula-mula dia putar belit Sanusi. Dia kutuk Pak Lah pasai Sanusi senorok dengar cerita macam tu.
Lepas tu dia putar belit Pak Lah pula. Dengan Mahathir dia tak dak can. Matathir tau putar belit dia.
Bila dia mula nak perangkap Pak Lah, kami naik meluat. Selalu mai Kepala Batas tunjuk muka dengan geng-geng Cina dia.
Kami warning Pak Lah kata budak ni kena jaga-jaga. Tapi Pak Lah dah kena pukau. Pak Lah ni dia dengan geng nana di Tanjung dia lemah.
Pasai tu dia ambil balik Datuk Mutalib walau ada kes dengan MAC sampai bengrup Yayasan Pulau Pinang.
La ni dia dengan Si Kali ni pejahanam pulak NST memalui Medea Prema.
By the way, was the cheque offered before or after his article about how close he is to the powers that be? Another case of 'one leg up".....ReplyDelete
What i do want to know is whether the cheque was offered before or after his article about how close he is to the powers that be?ReplyDelete
If only you had seen him during the press conferance...and I quote "Tak terlintas bagi saya untuk meminta maaf..blah blah blah"
As a politician he could have worded it better, more politely shall I say. The Chinese medium papers have already influenced the Mandarin reading community about what harm KJ is capable of doing. Today, he has shown the whole country how he could go down our history books as the person who brought about May 13 Part 2.
pemerhati dari jln chow sow lin.. korang oklah, boss korang ayam jantan. boss kita kat riong tarak taring tarak bola, jadi eloklah brader rocky tegur dia. aku ingat brader rocky takkan nak jolok datuk khaled pasal datuk you tu punya record brader rocky pun tabik salam punya. kita kalau boleh nak kita punya geic dan ge dato manja jantanlah sikit bila berdepan dengan si kali, si brendan, budak2 tingkat 4 dan machai-berkecai mereka. ini memanjang tundok tengok ujung kasut sendiri, malu BANG OII!ReplyDelete
kalimulah has no more credibility as a journalist. Not that he ever had before. But since his lack of -- all that's good in journalism -- has been exposed, he should have enough maruah diri to abstain from further tarnishing the NST.ReplyDelete
He is a sham and a shame. He is a liar. The Malays call it -- meluat -- when you read his column about the good he had done to and for people when you know that THAT is a bloody lie. Kalimulah knows only how to fix people, stab people in the back (but now he is more transparent, he does it in the front), "aniaya" people. he harbours ill will against people better than him but whom he cannot use or abuse. He is a rat of the first degree. Even his "friends" know him to be so.It makes me want to throw up when Kalimulah so shamelessly writes about love and compassion.
Please lah Kalimullah, stop further embarrassing yourself.
spot on. I don't believe a word Datuk K writes. "The goodness of his own existence" - I like that.
What a damper of a Sunday morning to open the paper (I do read the NST), flip the pages and see his photo, and (ugh!) his nauseatingly, masuk bakul-angkat sendiri column.
Brother, let me tell you. People talk. Si Kali tu memang penipu, you are right.
his nauseatingly, masuk bakul-angkat sendiri column.
Brother, let me tell you. People talk. Si Kali tu memang penipu, you are right.
Couldnt agree more with you.
Kali is the biggest liar, a coward, a braggart & a shameless person.
Masuk bakul, angkat diri sendiri. Sounds like Pak Lah (It's my idea!!!)
His story is incredulous. A rich Chinese-Christian who poured his heart out to politically motivated Malay spin-doctor? His subconscious despise of Chinese-Christian is clearly there..ReplyDelete

THOSE WHO BELIEVE WHAT KALIMULAH HAS WRITTEN, please stand up.ReplyDelete
Give Kali a chance to celebrtate Merdaka lah. This may be his last and final yuga. Pak Lah out, ACA in. Ini cerita Malaysia lah. Mana ada kekal punya. BTW, heard that budak-budak tingkat 4 and Jalan Riong (read Kali) had branded Bernama Chairman Annuar Zaini traitor for exposing PM in that malu punya TV3 interview.ReplyDelete
i am reminded of brother rocky's remark about these jokers and clowns -- that when something goes wrong, they would blame somebody else. pass the buck, that's what they do. so i am hardly surprised that they are shifting the blame to annuar. but hell.... what are they blaming him for? did i read you right -- for exposing Pak Lah?
it gets scarier and scarier
Anakmalaysia, that was good. You so hit the nail on the head! I also thought his so-called Merdeka tribute was more about himself and his unlimited milk of goodness than about the Merdeka spirit. And it is so off putting, crowing to all and sundry about the charitable deeds he has done. How I footed the bill for my canteen operator who had a heart attack, how I helped the government during the currency crisis, how ECM Libra gave scholarships to poor students, how I helped the Chinese. Please lah, can someone save us from this really obnoxious hypocrite!ReplyDelete
as far as i am concerned, kali did nothing wrong when he wrote his piece in the sunday times. i guess a lot of people have a lot of problems with him. a lot of people accuse a lot of people of low tolerarance. now it seems a lot of people have low tolerance. leave the guy alone.ReplyDelete
of course kali did wrong when he wrote that piece of bull crap. and yes, a lot of people have problems with him. not because they have low tolerance. its because they know the person kali is and the awful things he had done to people. he is a bad person.
