Where's the spin?
I had expected Brendan Pereira to spin it and use one of his favourite openings "The Prime Minister was an angry man yesterday" for Pak Lah's response to Lee Kuan Yew over the latter's disparaging remarks about Malaysian Chinese being marginalised and compliant.
But the former Singapore Straits Times journalist decided to go back to straight reporting in this case and "soften" Abdullah's demeanour in the face of LKY.
So you get straight reporting on that issue from the NST today, which read just like the ones published in Bernama, Utusan, and The Star.
Well, Brendan will have another chance to make a soup of LKY in his column tomorrow!
