    Bernama is a screwed up organisation. They simply dont know what they are doing. Whoever is the head honcho doesnt make any difference.

    Federation of Big Guy Global Malaysian chapter welcomes the appointment of Yong Soo Heong to Bernama Editor-in-Chief :)

  4. under the present AAB administration -- the appointment of Azman Ujang and Yong is purrrfect.
    Azman is your class-act apple-polisher (bootlicker) and Yong will never go against the flow.
    A nice Yes-men team.

    By the way --- looks like there is no place for Datuk ZAK.

    Can the new guys function effectively if the 'hidden hands' that steer the ship remain the same?

    There is one guy who probably can shake up Bernama. And that guy is Rocky, but sad to say, Rocky is not in the good books of the powers-that-be. In the meantime, Bernama will rot, just like the New Straits Times. Just too bad. Very sad, Rocky, that is the state of the country today.

    huh, nasib baik n alhamdulillah, sekurang-kurangnya orang BERNAMA masih ada tempat dalam BERNAMA. BERNAMA masih menggunakan skim kerajaan bagi gajinya. dan Ketua Pengarang hanya JUSA c, gaji dalam 7 ribu campur elaun dapat la dalam 13 ribu, cuba bandingkan dengan eic suratkhabar.... macammana nak bersaing... huh.

    perlantikan AU adalah satu kejutan dalam desas desus lalu yang mengatakan mungkin orang luar akan menduduki tempat sebagai PB- macam nama chamil wariya- errr rasa ada comment dalam post sebelum nih dalam bulan 12 kot.

    ok la, korang tau tak edito0r bernama cuma gred s44&48? taraf diorang ni macam budak PTD yang baru masuk keje3-5 tahun. huh.... sian diorang

    Tahniah Yong n AU!!!

    Tahniah kepada Sdr Azman Ujang dan Sdr Yong.

    Sekurang-kurangnya Bernama terus mengamalkan dasar memberi keutamaan kepada calon dalaman.

    Azman and Yong are old hands.

    I pray that their partnership will be a productive one.

    They must continue to defend Bernama's independence.

    Thank you.

  9. I must congratulate my friends Mr Datuk and Yong.

    Rahsia mu rahsia ku,orang tak tahu. tapi jangan sampai Bernama tergelincir landasan lagi, dulu hampir-hampir sekali. Rezeki Tuhan yang kasi jadi jangan sampai kelabu mata lagi. Umur makin pendek tapi perjalanan masih lagi jauh Dato.

  11. Tahniah Datuk Au dan Bro Yong. Bro Yong, bila Presiden NL nak belanja nasi lemak?

    Wonder if the civil service mentality will ever be shaken off Bernama's top guns (and therefore stopped from trickling down). Maybe what they need is some young blood who is capable and willing to make radical changes.

    Congratulations to Datuk AU and especially to Mr. Yong.

    Having a non-Malay as Editor-in-Chief is unprecedented in Bernama. It is definitely a welcome change.
    Mr Yong is a very nice and humble gentleman... a iive wire at gatherings and has a very good sense of humour. He is full of jokes albeit some of them is laced with sexual connotations.

    Congrats again to you Mr. Big Y.

  14. Salam Sejahtera,

    I would like to place on record heartiest felicitations for the new stewards at the helm.

    New strategies are always needed and welcomed, lets hope for the best and let the rest wish them the very best, the best will eventually take on the rest.

    Take stock and deliver, we will continue to support you both in your undertakings.

    Kind regards,

    Steady Eddie

    AU... is a person who talks while walking and expect us to listen to his every words while following him walking left, right, around you. And he is also well-known to close to Effendi Norwawi. Out of nowhere during the PBB's general meeting last month, AU come up with an article kononnya, CM had a special mentioned on Effendi. Halo AU, itu Effendi sudah nobody in Sarawak. You still want to go down with him? aiseh.... I think you better go to Gunung Ledang. May be, you'll find another similar puteri that rocks Effendi to his shattering political career.... or whatever it means....
