8/9 via sms
Dear Rocky's Bru,
I refer to your posting Editors Thrashed (8/9/2008), in which you quote M. Bakri Musa's article Sycophantic Editors Ruin Trust, which was premised on his assertion that I had "boldly predicted Anwar would be defeated (in Permatang Pauh)".
When and where did I ever "boldly predict" that Anwar would be defeated? I did a piece "5 reasons why Anwar could lose" but I was very careful in choosing the word COULD rather than would or will or should. But the whole piece was not a prediction. It is clear that the good doctor didn't read the story at all.
And he got another fact wrong as well. I am not editor-in-chief.
