New blood (for old media)

Move over Joceline Tan (the Star), here comes Aniza Damis (NST).
For my previous postings on Joceline Tan, click here. On Aniza, visit Zorro.

better believe it joceline.
Joceline is far more experienced than Aniza. By journalism standards, I think, aniza is pretty green, although she has a little more than 5 years in the profession.

but, she can write, is smart and her callowness is refreshing.
yes..move over joceline.

let's hope aniza will not turn out to be pathetically like joceline.
whatever good that she had churned out as a journalist has come to nothing for having sold her soul to the 4th floor boys.

Aniza, those turn to the trade will tell you to turn the other way...
yes turn the other way.

Joceline Tan may not be sexy, but she sexes up her stories all the time to make them readable. Joceline is what I call a backstreet journalist. She thrives on rumours and juicy tales.

joceline is a wimp!
In the US, we call people who are wimps....young cats!

Listen up morons!

Nothing at the NST happens without a reason. Why are we making so much over nothing, in the past many good reporters/journalists have written good interviews and reports, but none see print, why because of a reason. Interview with Nazi was allowed to be used in toto, albeit with a bit of an editing, with and for a reason I am sure.
So do not go crazy over a short lived shiok, as always we are always being taken for a fool, the magic word is THINK!

It's all about the approach.
In politics, even the popular song "Two sides of the Story" is does not cover all approaches.
So the more approaches covered the better for the hungry public.
Media Dawg.

In years the old must go
The wiser people have no places
In the fast pace developments
You reach your limits
No more tricks to learn

There must be renewals
In every structure of an organization
When the top brass bleed you dry
They say it is time to change

Only think they forget
The old has the experience
The view carved from years on the beats
Gaining something can’t find in office politics

But they are those who got nothing
In spite of years of training and coaching
They never move they stay in one place
Like Hafiz his career in badminton going downhill
Even Misbun tries to find out why
Hafiz never sees the shuttlecocks
He only sees his dream in 2003

When one learns
Don’t compromise one principle
Don’t get turn over to the other side
It is down the road of light
You sold your soul to the dark

It will be a long time
When one wants to get it right
Past glory is just history
Today one makes or breaks it

New blood on Halloween
Don’t get carried away
Know the principle know the truth
When you are turned over
You can kiss goodbye
Who will believe you when you write?

Let's not get everyone overly excited! Yes, Aniza may have done a good piece. But you know lah, one swallow doesn't make a summer, as they say...

Nonetheless, we must give credit to Aniza for zeroing into issues.

Pasquale is right. THINK. There is a reason for everything in the corridor of the propaganda machine. Just as we hope, some son-in-law above-all-laws must be pulling some strings. Son-in-law? Never mind, I am spewing dung like some de facto. Anyway, I agree, doesn't read like an obedient lapdog session. Joceline does it better.

Only the wearer knows where the shoe pinches.

We sure pray the interview opens the exit door for a NAZI.

Joceline Tan was recently promoted. She was the ONLY journalists promoted in The Star.

So, of course she will do some buttering up and her writing no longer objective.

hani said...

Ahhh, Joceline. She knows which side of her bread is being buttered.

zorro said...

People THINK! Sounds like Nazri-speak? No, of course?

Anon11.04am. Does line 9 of my posting ring any bells in that corridor?

On Jan.30,2007 I ended my maiden posting by asking:
Where is the power to think for oneself? Where is the forum for diverse ideas? What happens to the court of public opinion?

nstman said...

Let's put things in perspective. Aniza is WORKING in the NST. And in NST, everything happens for a reason. The article is basically designed to finish off Nazri. And Aniza is just a means to the end.

ding-ding said...

Well done, Aniza..you pass the novice test.
To pass the expert level test, how about a piece of investigative journalism?
Ask the same interviewee about his links to Abdullah Ang(the prisoner who could walk in and out of jail as he pleases) and Anwar Ibrahim, his one-time crony.

shar101 said...

Aniza Damis? Our very own Christiane Amanpour in the making?

Time will reveal if it's so.

But then again, I'd love to see her do an interview with someone a little, ahem..ok.. a lot more intelligent than the standard bearer of idiocy.

That would be a truer reflection of her mettle.

Your call, Aniza.

Sorry, thought I stumbled upon a Boozer's joint!

Nah, it's a blood-bank centre!

Quite, disappointing really. I am sure it says B......r......ooooo! Must b p---ed out of my skull. Solllllllly once agiiiiin......n!

kreg said...

Let's not get too excited, okay. Making nazri look daft is no big deal, the papers do it all the time.
