RM100k claims? A veteran journalist has resigned from the NST, I hear. Talk is that the Executive Editor had approved claims amounting to some RM100,000 submitted by a reporter who spent three weeks in Pakistan recently on an assignment. But that's not likely, I thought, as every claim by a reporter needs to be counter-signed by the Group Editor or the Group Editor-in-Chief.
P.S. Also heard that one ex-journo of NST, a Tony, is the latest to join Fox, the Brenden-Wong Sulong Moa-PR* firm. Not sure which Tony, though. Tony Emanuelle, Tony Francis, Tony Mariadass?
* A new term not found in any business dictionary yet, it stands for Motherofall-PR.
