New Zam? It was the first time the Kempen Minister has said it in public. "People say I'm anti-blog. I am not anti-blog. I am anti mischievous rumours spread by some irresponsible blogs," Zainuddin Maidin said at a dinner last Friday.
At the reception, bloggers were placed under a category of their own. That's unprecedented first, a Kempen staff told me. In his address, Zam even mentioned "journalist friends who are no longer in newspapers but who are now bloggers".
