Ah, Wong Chun Wai! The group chief editor of The Star told me of his plans to blog quite a while ago. He's been doing it quietly and has asked me to keep him a secret until the World Press Freedom day.
I told those who attended BUM2008 yesterday of his blog and also mentioned it to the adguys at a 4As forum in KL on Wednesday.
Personally, I believe this is the green light that many journalists at the Star have been waiting for. Now that their big boss is blogging, nothing can stop them from blogging.
To me, this could be the turning point in our pursuit for greater Press Freedom.
