Motherfuckers in the newsroom

I feel sorry for Lionel Morais. Not because I happen to know that his appointment as chief news editor of the New Straits Times was made without the current group editor's consent. I feel sorry for him because at a meeting with staff correspondents and bureau chiefs last Friday, he lost his cool. He's not known to be a short-tempered fella but that day Lionel just blew his top, and I feel sorry for him.

That he had been unhappy with the kind of attention that blogs like mine have been giving to the NST is now made obvious. He was particularly angry with NST journalists, especially staff correspondents and bureau chiefs, who have been leaking information to such blogs. He didn't have to mention Rocky's Bru ... I know whose blog he was referring to.

He called these informers "motherfuckers".

I know each and every one of the journalists at the meeting, including Lionel and Ah Chai, and I am sorry for them. I have spoken to each one at one time or another, on the phone and in person. I think it's unfair to call the people who talked to me and shared info with me "motherfuckers". They are not smuggling the next day's story to your rival papers. Journalists talk and exchange info, that's what we do, don't we?

After all, bro, you too have told me things about the NST's newsroom;. it's just that I decided not to blog about it. That - telling me those things about NST - doesn't make you a motherfucker in my book.

Llionel Morais is a small man who was suddenly thrust into the limelight by another equally small bastard by the name of Brendan Pereira. In the process Morais has developed a miscreantic ego. A hitherto nice small man is now a monster, a creation of bastard Brendan. Morais leapfrogged over so many good journalist in the pecking order, thanks to Brendan's avaricious appetite for building an empire built around cronyism. Morais should realise he is in the news business. If he thinks he can change perception through lies and propaganda, he is sadly mistaken. You cannot hide lies and deception. Brendan's world revolved around lies and spin-doctoring, a skill he learnt in Singapore. Another bastard by the name of A. Kadir Jasin tried the same trick, and got his come-uppance. Dont try this in Malaysia.

nstman said...

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to present a list of motherfuckers of journalism. In fact only two made the distinguished list. They are A. Kadir Jasin and Brendan Pereira. Both are tied at No 1. Their single most important achievement was enlightening the people of Malaysia that they have been digesting shit all this while.

rocky, i've been a journalist for some time and what i dont understand is that our superiors will laud us for scoops or stuff that are 'newsworthy' (read: attention-grabbing and usually sensational), but they get very defensive when small things at the editorial floor get passed-on to 'outsiders' (read: not just bloggers, but even people from different desks...)

a 'motherfucker', am i? aah, not too difficult to live with that nowadays....

BRO,

What a shame. Lionel wasn't the best candidate to be made chief news editor. The people who appointed him didn't do justice. They destroyed Lionel, and Lionel helped because he accepted a post that's far too big for him.

Don't feel sorry for him. Feel sorry for the newspaper. Many good people left the NST when the people running it lowered the benchmark. I'm still serving the paper, but I'm just happy to makan gaji and enjoy the weekends..

What is news?
Everybody wants to know
On the streets right up to the government
In between the police and the underworld

Sharing it one shouldn’t cringe
You can’t be a miser and still think the world is good
It doesn’t rhythm in our daily lives
We need news whatever it is…………..

Sharing it amongst friends and peers
Sometimes of frustrations and bottlenecks
In the sum game to survive and fishing rods
It is news sharing amongst like minded friends

Getting angry and blowing one’s top
It isn’t sign of a good leader
A leader has to take every good and bad
Evaluate it and understand it

Knowing that humans enjoy
Passing news getting into it
Especially it is a hot topic
Dig up the news and sources
Share it all and get a few back

What is news?
A party of sharing
Write it passing around
Let the song sing
We are listening ears sharp eyes searching
Without it life will be dull
So don’t get angry
It happens every second every day

My God, Lionel. How dare you call us motherfuckers when you are MOTHER OF ALL MOTHERFUCKERS.

Don't you forget, Lionel? You spent hours in Brendan and Kali's room motherfucking Rocky and the reward is you are now in the position to motherfuck others.

Rocky made you. And you motherfucked him even animals would have no heart to do it.

Come on, Lionel. Before you call us motherfuckers, look into the mirror. Ask yourself, am I the MOTHER OF ALL MOTHERFUCKERS.

Both you and Ah Chai are symbols of mediocrity. Let me tell you in your face. Both you don't deserve to be where you all.

But in Kali and Brendan's opinion, you deserve to be there because you have become the MOTHER OF ALL MOTHERFUCKERS.

Rocky's Bru said...

Dear NSTman,

1. Kadir does not plagiarize.

2. He has helped converge Big media
and the New media when he started
blogging with his "The Scribe" nearly
3 years ago. Look at how many journos
blogging today

3. He defended his editors if they stand
they defended their stories. Even against
the dreadful Daim. I speak from experience.
Some, eg Kali, be on their knees
and beg for forgiveness if we made
Samy Vellu or a member of Pak Lah's family (not
even Pak Lah, mind you) unhappy with
our reporting.

4. Other than that, I'm with you.

Thank you.

What NST needs to do now is to bring back some of its better journalists who had served the newspaper in late 80s and early 90s as its key operators. People like Azam Aris and Othman Abu Bakar of The Edge, who are now holding key posts in the respected newspaper.

Blend them with some of the insiders, such as Zainul Arifin, Sharif Haron and Fauziah Ismail, who have been sidelined because they were not in Kali's and Brendan's good books.

These bunch of people are definitely much better than Lionel, Lee Ah Chai and gang in managing the daily news operations.

Bro,

Have you ever seen any fantastic scoop by Lionel Morais? None. That speaks volume of his ability.

A half past six Chief New Editor. All he knows is calling people motherfuckers

Anonymous said...

I hope I read you correctly that Lionel was appointed without the knowledge of the Group Editor. If that is the case, then who appointed him? That smally bully by the name of Ah Chai?

If it comes to that kind of situation in the NST, then what's the point of having a Group Editor who is made out to be like a lame duck without a say in such matter?
Something is not right on the editorial floor when the GE does not call the shot.

I agree that calling subbordinates mother****** is simply out of line. In the blogosphere, we have etiquette not to spell out fully certain words that are best left in the gutter. I agree with reader Michael on that point.

Talk about some NST journalists reaching their own levels of imcompetence, Lionel and Ah Chai were leapfrogged over others as I was informed. Perhaps, the NST has come to a stage whereby the good apples are hard to pick out now and they have to settle for some bad apples and lame ducks. It's not gonna improve the situation, it's going to be worse.

Peter's Principle is very much alive in the NST today. Look at the kind of crap that's appearing in the news pages. It's total boredom and sometimes a struggle to read the paper.

As a long-time observer of NST (I have my source of information, too) I'm told there are still some good journalists in NST but they have been marginalized since the so-called "new regime" took over.

If you put duds in charge, then you get crap every day. Anyway, I hardly pick up any newspapers these days. I get all my information on the Internet.

nstman said...

Rocky, I agree with you on some aspects of Kadir's 'good deeds'. But his litany of sins overshadow his legacy. Kadir will always be remembered for using Stalinist methods to run the NST. He was not averse to using vile ways to achieve his own ends. He listened to no one, except his yes-men who lined up to whisper to him sweet nothings. Kadir put his people in key positions, sidelining people who were not in sync with him. His most devastating move was to turn the NST group of companies into a huge propaganda machine in the battle to finish off Anwar. he made himself the stooge of Dr Mahathir's evil machinations, unleashing the heavy artillery of the hithero powerful NST group to dissect and ultimately destroy Anwar. Instead of achieving its stated objectives, the reverse happened. It made Anwar a martyr. This was the turning point in NST's fortunes. Sales dropped, and it lost the trust of the public which ultimately ended in the Star becoming the undisputed No 1. Kadir has become the most hated figure in the NST. Not surprising because he used fear to perpetuate his evil rule. As for this bastard called Brendan Pereira, watch out for the next episode.

Wow, looks like it is now free for all after Antares posted "the seven forbidden words" and picked up by zorro. I am now desensitised to the 4-letter word but am still a little uncomfortable attaching it to a term of endearment. The other 6 words are kinda acceptable under certain circumstances.

And one should not be surprised to find young people in their teens using those words freely without even batting an eyelid. Of course, they would control themselves in front of adults.

What to do...huh?

de trouble with small-sized beings is their "height" inferiority complex. When they attain some kind of power, they have tendency to push their 'weight' around.

mut said...

Kadir Jasin reached the lowest ebb during the Anwar saga. NST hit rock bottom, a sheer contrast to its illustrious past. Yes, this happened during his watch. NST became synonymous with UMNO/BN propaganda than a bona fide news agency. Anything changed since then? Maybe you can tell us Rocky. You have ears in the right places.

If you read Kadir Jasin's blog, and are aware of the particular issue he is blogging about, you get the feeling he is dancing around words which are more suited to describe the situation, so that we end up watching what he doesn't say as well as what he does say. Ends up being long winded. Sounds too much like a politician and not much of the journalist left. Too much like spin to me.

ewoon said...

Like they say, 'power' does not define a person, it exposes him or her.

Lionel Morais, in this instance, is the true mother-F-fer. Put him in a position of power and his true self soon wiggles out of his worm hole. He is a hypocrite and a low life and he, whether he knows it or not, is more dangerous to himself than to his imagined 'enemies.'

He will fall and he will fall hard. Doesn't he read history? All 'tyrants' will ultimately get drunk on their high pedestals built on loose sand. All it takes is a low ebb and Lionel Morais' sand castle will disintegrate burying him under.

It won't take long. His days are numbered. The rotting remains of the likes of the 'once mighty' (yah, induced by his own drunkardness) Kali Ular are just another proof of their temporarious sore statures that go against the high law of nature.

i feel sorry for Lionel Morais for the greater fool and mother-F-fer that he is. But then again we can all do away with one less scum on this earth. No tears from me, that's for sure.

Begone you mother-F-fer of all mother-F-fer! The Word is out and spoken.

I wonder what you gain by putting up such a post, Rocky. The subject matter here is far too trivial from your usual postings on matters of national interest and public concern.
I usually read blogs and portals with an open mind and try not to second-guess motives, but this case is far too out of the ordinary for me to ignore.
Lionel is an old friend, and I haev found him to be very real with me - no facades, not malicious, no lies.
I do not know how he is at workplace, but he was once your trusted leftenant. You used to discuss your stories with him at the National Press Club, and I remember him bringing the Malay Mail front page to you for your approval. He was so proud that you saw him worthy of a promotion (to a news editor or deputy or assistant - i can't remember) in Malay Mail.
After seeing all that, I am curious as to what your motives are.
Is this your way of doing some spring-cleaning in NST while waiting for your Group-Editor-In-Chief appointment?

Shawn said...

I agree with NSTman about his verdict on Kadir Jasin. I am a reporter in the NST news desk. Those days we used to cower in fear whenever Kadir went into his tantrums. My bosses, Calvin Goh and Ashraf Abdullah and Tony Francis, were shaking whenever they were called for questioning by Kadir. I used to see editors like Joseph Soosai and Jacob Paul shivering when they talked to Kadir. Kadir is a monster. He is the pits. He is an insult to journalism. He had no respect for journalists. He should be tried for crimes against journalism. He treated NST like his own grandfather's office. Thank Allah he is no more.

I will know repeat that word on you. But I hope your mother reads Rocky's blog and find out what you have become.

Perhaps Kadir Jasin's therapy of roti canai and teh si would solve the problems.

But as ardent readers of newspapers, we wouldn't bother much about the backstage productions.

Just ensure my RM 1.20 remains unchanged, but please provide relevant and up to date news, regardless of the infighting that is not only happening at NST but even CNN or other news media.

NSTMAN,

No need to get personal.

Many vertically-challenged men and women made it big in NST.

Not the height that matters but the size of the brains.

I won't mention names here. I too know both boys.

They were really boys when they came in and I was already an old man then.

I pity them. If it's true they were appointed without consulting Syed Nazri, that's no surprise.

SN is too nice a man to survive the dog eat dog world of NSP. His own days could be numbered. So is Hisham AUn and Manja Ismail.

When the chips fall, Lionel and Ah Chai may fall too. I heard guys from the Star and Sun are being considered.

But Nionel and Ah Chai may yet survive if they know how to play balls with their new Malay bosses.

In the NST, the non-Malay s alwaya survive better than the Malays at the top.

Hi Bru, there are many m'fcukers around us and Lionel Morais' is like one commenter said - The MOTHER of all M'FCUKERS.
For those who don't know him - He's an Indian chap or Kiling chai with a Mat Salleh name.
Lionel's remark reflect the type of people in this country if given little authority or power will forget their roots. Just like Hindrafs!
Umno should thank Kalimullah Masheerul Hassan (also another Indian with a strange Malay Muslim name) for the mess he has caused in the NSTP. He also loves cursing people using the same phrase used by Lionel Morais.
Maybe Lionel learnt from him or Kalimullah may have briefed him to use it during the meeting.

Here I have to be racist. Ah Chai and him were appointed because the NST under Kalli is anti-Malay, plain and simple.

So all the appointments of Chinese and Indians are rushed up before Kalli is given the boot.

Unmno is stupid. It concerns itself only with appointments of Malay editors.

So Indian and Chinese, including the anti-Malay and anti-umno type get appointed.

These are the gatekeepers who will give anti-Malay copies to a weak editor like Syed Nazri.

I have said it before, and I am saying it now - Make Rocky the generalissimo of the NST group. That means he controls Harian Metro, Barian and NST. This is NST's last throw of the dice in a last ditch attempt to stay alive and relevant. There have been too many cooks in control of the NST. The rot started with the reign of terror under the despised and hated bastard called Kadir Jasin and his gutless sycophant Ahmad Talib and ended in flames under a bastard called Brendan Pereira. This is NST's last chance at resurrection. Let Rocky put his money where his mouth is. This is NST's last hurrah. NST must seize this moment in the face of impending doom.

Kasihan itu Lionel. Apabila terdesak, dia bilang perogol ibu yang bertanggung jawab.

Apa yang En Rocky dah terbitkan selama ni saya anggap menarik. Banyak berita di belakang tadbir yang jarang sekali saya baca.

Kata orang lama, mengata orang dia yang lebih. Si Lionel tu kenalah ingat jasa En Rocky. Kerana kamulah yang dia jadi Pengarang Meja Jenayah di Malay Mail dulu.

Sekarang di NST, Si Lionel tu dah lupakan kulit. Malah, masih menjadi dalang Si Berendan dan Kalimullah Hassan. Apa nak buat? Tuah badan... Kalau nak menangguk sumber tu, bagaikan air di cincang - tidak akan putus..

When i read on Malaysiakini, that some blogger posted profanities on his blog, and the writers implores all bloggers not to follow your example, my curiousity was piqued.

After reading your short blog here, i came to the conclusion that this writer Ganesh is overtly sensitive and lack the general common sense to differentiate between facts and hearsay.

I too came to find your blogs to be an interesting read and in short.. Man, you rocks.. hope you come up with more great ones!

Dear Rocky
I fully agree with NSTMAN. The day kadir jasin, ahmad a talib and you included conspire to use the NST to become the propaganda machine of mahathir to kill off anwar ibrahim was the saddest in the history of NST. the paper never recovered and most likely will never. now kadir is using his blog to maybe clear his conscience and may God help him.

Anonymous said...

as a former nst journalist it's sad to read so many negative comments about the newspaper, the organisation and its people.

zaman dulu takde blogs so the badmouting was confined to word of mouth. these days with the advent of blogs it appears publicly for all to see. yes, for all to see and i don't know if this is for the better of any organisation.

frankly what is the big deal of being called a motherfucker. as journalists, and i call on the seniors to correct me, i think they have endured much worse in the early days of journalism.
tak payahlah get carried away kononnya so sensitive. minum, perempuan, judi semua boleh but name calling, itu pun i will assume that he generalised the use of the word motherfucker, you all tiba-tiba naik angin.

relax people. focus on how to improve the newspaper in terms of content, readership, sales and advertising.

any of you not happy with the organisation leave. no need to bitch about how bad it is. buat kerja collect gaji every month or just plain and simple leave for a better position elsewhere. what's stopping you.

true that in any organisation ada baik buruknya. i've had my share of bitching about, quarrels and being opressed, but i chose to leave. bad or good, the nst is where i learnt my skills and to the organisation and the people who helped me get to where i am today, i thank you.

cheers.

you know what... i have to go agst the grain on this one, rocky...

i am on lionel's side on this. i believe that he is a honest guy, very passionate abt his job, and loyal till the end to his paper.

now, that is an admirable tenet - an editor who protects his paper bcoz he believes in it. an editor who wants to protect the people who actually work, and not the bunch of whiners, who, well, whine and whine and whine, and bring nothing else to the table...

you went tru a lot of shit yourself trying to protect the good name of the papers you helmed.

you did things your way to protect the paper...heck, you even gave lee ah chai a clerical desk outside your office bcoz you thought he was kali's boy. to each his own, but i wouldn't fault lionel for doing what he did....just like what you did to ah chai bcoz you were merely protecting the interest of the paper...

i am disappointed in you...lionel had served you well. when you were the editor, you took offence to kali telling salehuddin othman to take charge of the mail when you were the boss.

now, lionel is merely protecting his paper's interest, just like you did when you didn't want saleh to interfere.

heck, lionel was one of those who gave saleh a telling off when he came snooping, like he's some kind of God of journalism.

i know lionel...he is a capable man, a good friend, an honest worker. you are capable, but you are not a good friend. heck, has anyone been spared? not even syed nadzeri, for that matter....

rocky, you obviously do not know the meaning of the word loyalty.

not that you give a damn, but you are one arrogant person who will do anything to get attention for yourself.

please lah...go get a hair cut so people can see your real face....

Yes, Rocky did a great job to defend the Malay Mail. Do you know why Kali asked sallehuddin to oversee the paper?

Because Rocky had become an ass in the pain to Kali. When Kali joined the paper, his intention was not to take the papers under the NSTP group to greater heights.

The intention was to make as much money as possible by using the papers to influence the establishment to make decisions in favour of his business partners and rob the country.

And Rocky was standing in his way, running stories which Kali and his business partners deemed as sabotaging their plans.

Don't tell me Anon 1.00am that you forgot the drum roll Kali made on the frontpage of NST when he announced who was the winner and new owner of the DRB?

Don't tell me you forget about how Rocky exposed Kali and his business associates about Fomema and other business deals?

Come on Anon 1.00am? Are you are party to such heinous crime? Robbing the country?

Lionel should clear the air who was the person in Malay Mail who became the informer of Rocky's professional work?

And he was rewarded?

Do you Anon 1.00am that Kali was so pissed off with Rocky that he would do anything any all means to get rid of Rocky?

he finally did. How? Reposition Malay Mail. And duped the management of NST saying that the young readers were looking for a paper that they could associate with.

So they brought in that young ciku M Zulkifli and fucked the paper good and proper.

And Kali managed to get rid of the paper. Rocky left. That's Kali, ladies and gentlemen.

When malay mail was banned for running lurid sex fantasies, kali as expected washed his hands and blamed on ceo syed feisal.

His hatred towards rocky did not end there. He sent the Malay Mail to the gallows.

So Anon 1.00am, please tell the truth and lionel please come out clean.

If it is not true you backstab rocky, say so. Rocky will forgive you.

But if not, and if you backstab rocky, you will live with it for the rest of your life. Don't call yourself Rocky's friend because a friend will not backstab his own friend.

As for Ah Chai, Anon 1.00am, ask around especially among his colleagues at the sub desk who is actually Ah Chai and how great he was at the sub desk.

I rest my case

I am so shocked that a blog which is quite well visited by the public should post a normally unmentionable word so blatantly as a heading.
Its is akin to a child crying out aloud in public that his foe called him an unmentionable "such and such word".
Nothwithstanding the subject matter and how blantantly the subject matter in the article itself used the word in a confined spacing.
But to then REPEAT It in a now Public Domain that most BLOGS are nowadays in SIMPLY ANOTHER MATTER ALTOGETHER and requires PUBLIC REBUKE from all sane and decent people (especially those who visited the said blog and was REPULSED into seeing such a header for the day at least).
Surely this itself overules WHATEVER SUBJECT MATTER being trashed about here.

Most of the NST and non-NST trolls who commented on this post failed to notice the obvious:that the NST is the mirror image of the Sleepwalker's regime where those who are supposedly in command are snoring away while yesterdays street urchins hold sway.

Lionel Morais and Lee Ah Chai are just footsoldiers of the Goddess and the Bloody Plagiarist who are in the payroll of Little Red Dot Pvt.Ltd and under the manipulation of the ever-present SILhoutte. Syed Nadzri might as well be Pak Lah, the "U Must Not Obstruct" stalwart who is ever so pleased to see Chingkie chauvinists and Indian bigots have a field day, after all, all repressed anger and no safety valve, makes Lees and Samys frustrated wankers. Into this latter narrative, plant LAC (the symbolic representations of the LGEs, the CSLs, The Gerakanitas etc) and LM (the Kulats, the Uthayas etc) and you will get the drift of what the whole situation symbolises.

The fact of the matter is, the NST has been going down the drain big time ever since the caged circus lion walked in with its ringmaster in tow to vent their pentup vengeance on the hapless citizens of the newsroom.And in the tumult, the dining table got upset and fresh and wholesome meals and heady brews like the Rocky brand got thrown out and the bad leftovers from yesterday's meal got a reheating and were served to unsuspecting customers. Stale reporting, tepid exposes,bland commentaries and are not the ingredients that maketh good news, a situation further aggravated by asinine editorials, juvenile and amateurish spinmeistering and infantile columns.

In light of such flotsam, the man in the street was better off premoniting on the sequence of 6 numbers with his RM1 on a devil's bet and have 20cents spare for some hacks rather than spend precious time muddling through and deciphering dross conjured by some has been plagiarist hack ensconced in an airconditioned newsroom. That's what newpaper journalists in contemporary Malaysian newrooms have become, party hacks beholden to some pariah wallah who thinks that he is god's gift to journalism.

I have stopped reading the NST five years back and though i currently buy the Star, it is more to do with drooling over Liverpool's table topping antics than anything else. Mind you, I find the Star now to be an "opposition rag in proposition disguise" with its reporting of LGE's mindless droppings, huzir sulaiman's public self masturbation, zainah anwar's crap rantings, the law professors' anti-establishment poodling and sundry ejaculations from a plethora of hasbeen wankers. I will abandon it soon for the warm embrace that the Sun of London affords on a cold chilly night, the intellectual and factual muscles of the NYT and the exotica dished up by more pithy dailies from Mumbai to Tokyo. Come to think off it, the NST and the Star, under their current bosses, are more useful as rags to wipe off the pecker after a stint at the urinal. MFs all of them!!

P.S: nstman, i support you on that one. If and when it comes about, i will be back in a jiffy, as a reader that is!

2. About this thing about AKJ, remember that the Anwar aka Renegade also used the press to drown the pitiful Ghaffar in 1993. Remember that image of a crestfallen Ghaffar with his infamous plastic bag in tow. What goes around comes around....

What matters to this Kali is money and power..nothing else and scruples be damned. But then again, given the kiss of life by the SILhoutte, this shadow of a reporter used the powers at his disposal to wreak havoc on the newsroom and on the nation.He might still be at it when March marches past into the horizon, by the looks of it, since Sleepwalker is plotting with the Renegade to give u know who his moment of epiphany!

You may call yourself a warrior..
but the war you have chosen: which is to fight for the easy use of an unmentionable word in a public domain like this blog,is clearly wrong.
While any tom dick and harry can today start a blog and say his piece but when a blog becomes more public like this one then a lot more caution and circumspection is required by responsible bloggers.
Irrespective of what LM said in the confined office .....there are always other ways in which a heading like the one mentioned can be put..why the need to be so blatant and crude.
Its just so despicable and vile to have had it SEEN/OBSERVABLE the way it was and worse in that it was just easily available at the click of the mouse.

The Perennial Angst of NST

People come, people go. Once a basher, always a basher. So who's to say that when a new regime takes over the NST, it will become a better newspaper. Look back into the NST history under Umno and you only see different "warlords" running the show and that reflects on the NST.

Face the truth, in this age of the Internet the NST, as long as it is under the hegemony of Umno, can never win back its past glory. No matter how many revamps it has to endure, the product will remain the same because all these exercises are mere cosmetic surgery of the news and presentation.

There's little substance in the area of editorial content whether it's news or features. There has always been an endless litany of problems faced by the NST.

As evidenced by past revamps, the paper soon loses its direction after a redesign, not because of a lack of expertise in the area of good journalism and newspaper production, but more because of the following:

* political pressures and pro- government guidelines that senior editorial management must follow

* editorial management that's bankrupt of ideas or lacking the guts to push forward in a radical way.

* narrow-minded conservatism and self-imposed constraints among its journalists brought about by years of subjugation under different regimes.

* narrow focus on news value, leaning more towards prejudicial selection of news that usually don't impact on the general readers

* wrong choice of candidates for key posts but then the good ones "were sent packing long ago" and the few that's left in the newsroom are being marginalized

* too much politicking with factions fighting among themselves to gain favours and other rewards

* ill-conceived editorial hierarchy that allows for poor communication among the different desks, leading towards the running of "little kingdoms" in the newsroom.

* In many areas, there are clear signs of a lack of professionalism in the writing of editorial content due to the intake of fresh journalists who need time to come up to scratch.

* An editorial training department that is sleeping on its job.

The situation may change depending on who is running the show and capable enough to alter this list of factors that is causing what can be termed as the perennial angst of NST. But so long as it is still under the bondage of Umno, it will continue to suffer as a subject of contempt by most readers no matter how good the paper turns out to be.

The only way out for the NST is to become a truly independent newspaper without having to bow to the wishes of its political masters. But how can that be achieved? Is there a Rupert Murdoch somewhere? But will Umno sell?

With Najib taking over as the Prime Minister in March and assuming Ahirudin Attan gets the top job on the editorlal floor, would we see a new dawn for the newspaper?

I doubt it.

Najib and Umno will still have the final say on how the NST acts as a mouthpiece for the party. If the Rock treasures his position, he has to toe the line as well. Although Ahirudin may have good intention and other brilliant ideas to turn the paper around, he's going to be caught between a hard rock and a hard place.

So the anti-NST bashers come back again and start to throw brickbats for reasons known only to themselves. Whether the newspaper is under the aegis of Mahathir, Anwar (when he was DPM), Abdullah or Najib, it's never going to change as history has proven.

And the Rock can only do so much and no more. In no time, Ahirudin will join the "Forbes Most Bashed LIst" of editorial head honchos like Kadir Jasin, DKL, Kali, Brenden, and some minor ones.

Truth be told, some of these bashers are unreasonable and unrepentent creatures with no qualms to belittle or put down anyone that's on their hate list. Some comments are true while others are just fiction.

The circle can never be broken unless there's a radical change in ownership but right now it's like banking on a lame horse to win the race. At best, the horse can gallop along - lamely - into the sunset.

with the recent round of meetings held at the nst, one thing that none - lionel or any others wanted to discuss were circulation figures.
the fact is nst is no longer relevant.
it's a 160+ year old newspaper that has been forever tarnished by a group of people who thought they could fool all the people all the time.
there is no longer a need for a goverment mouthpiece like nst.
it's role has been taken over by blogs, on-line newsportals etc.
nst is a relic of the past, and editors like lionel and gang will go nowhere.
i dont see why people get all excited about who is who in nst anymore.
the simple fact is by the day, the nst is losing it's capability to influence people, and being the chief news editor of a 40,000 per day newspaper means your power to influence people is practically negligable. some bloggers will have more influence than that

Reading the comments section here is like a run down of the unsavoury history of NST n Malay Mail that only the insiders were privy to, before the advent on blogs.

I refuse to say the M word. Lost its shock value and utility already.

I don't even wanna say anything abt Lionel. I can see he's very "popular".

I just wanna say this. Even pre-online media and blogs, journos talk abt stuff they do to others.

There have been journos whose stories can't see light of day cos some editors are too fearful of offending authorities/politicians/advertisers.
I've known them to leak stories to rival media just so that some people's plight becomes public knowledge.

I would say that these types of journos put loyalty to profession higher than loyalty to company. Admirable, and rarely seen these days, I think.

I don't know if the leaks u infer are such types, but then a lot of information these days cannot be kept secret for long.

Those editors who can't grasp this fact can be called BEHIND TIMES, can't they?

"Motherfuckers in the Newsroom"

well, that sure was a creative way of returning an unsolicited "compliment". I can see the hallmarks of Bru's witty sarcasm in that heading.

It sums up LM in two conjoined nouns and thats all there is to it!!unless your mind is so wanked up that even the mention of MF will turn your little one into some muscled hulk of a thingy!!

LM is a motherfucker par excellence and those young and ol dudes and gals who are worked up over the usage of such a relatively harmless term,that wont even require you to work up any needless lather over, should just leave it at that.

Porno is easily available over the net in dark caves..oops cafes, homes and offices 24/7.. 365. MTV, bollywood and kollywood not forgetting the chingkie channels et al are teeming with steamy sexual titillations, suggestive dance sequences and brazen sexual banter..Women cavort about the streets of KL with their tits in full view, half view or about to pop out of their tee weeny tops. 'fuck', shit, arse ...cunt are part of street, class and office talk and are the piece de resistance for any angst-ridden teen AND NO ONE GIVES A DAMN SHIT!!(OOPS..WATCH THE EXPLETIVES..YOU ARSEHOLE).

And you people have nothing better to do than to get worked up over Rocky's sarcasm and indirectly elevate good ol' motherfucker to pantheon status.

Get a lifelah people and stop wanking your intellects away within some makebelieve ultra conservative heaven. I am a Muslim and swear words are a definite no-no but i use them all the same when needlessly provoked by bums here who have nothing but mash potatoes between their ears. That's life and i aint no saint like my dear old Mak Som (makcik kalsom)to shun and shrivel from the obvious for every good morning is the start of a new "kepala pening"...So get the drift, old story morning glory unless you want to apa khabar me to which i will say "pinggang ramping punggung lebar"..ha!ha!ha!

It is truly saddening to read this blog and its comments and realise that it is full of bitter people who seem only interested in b*tching and complaining about what's going on in their company.

Honestly, are you guys truly interested in cleaning up the shit? Look at yourselves first and ask yourselves why you are still working there if you are so bitter? Are you honestly capable of producing great work if you are already so busy surfing on to sites like these to bash your superiors? OK, so they were/are _________ (fill in blanks). But why are you wasting your time here complaining? Is this going to make anything better at the NST?

Look, its not that I dont get where youre coming from. Im in the media and I work in the same group. You think I'm happy with whats going on in here either? You think I agree with many of the decision's our EiC's make? Of course not! But at least I work hard for my gaji. I fight for my stories. And I keep fighting after Im shot down. I dont politick and I try to focus on what I came here to do - journalism.

For God's sake, stop complaining, whining, b*tching and politicking and move on if you're so unhappy! Make some other company a better place! If not, stay put, earn your keep and concentrate on how to make the NST a better paper!

Dear FMother,

Obviously, you love talking cock.

Tony E, Lionel's dearest cousin, had been getting away with blue murder in the newsroom - under the very auspicious patronage of past GEs - way before Lionel came into the picture.

Brendan was also his protector. You are talking cock bcoz when he was there, the bugger was ripping off stories from his own people. He sauntered in late, leaves early, ran his own empire - and claimed crazy overtime.

It went on for years - and nobody did anything - until Syed Nadzeri had enough. He went AWOL, didn't turn for work - and the company had to sack him.

Guess where he is now? Fox Media...The same one run by Brendan and Wong Su Long.

Now, let's talk abt K.P Waran. Free golf everywhere lah...overseas as well. Yacht given to him for free use under the pretext of Monsoon Cup coverage.

Signing a 100k claim was his death sentence.

Now, tell me exactly how Lionel had a hand in these?

At least Lionel does not take freebies from anyone. That's honesty - and it is something that you obviously do not understand bcoz you are clouded by emotions, and have no problems coming up with unsubstantiated claims. You just shot yourself in the arse by misrepresenting your case. tsk, tsk...having problems with being credible, huh?

Lionel has his shortcomings, but I stand by my conviction that this fella is passionate abt his work. And as I see it, quite a number of people, obviously those from within the NST ranks itself, are not worthy of this. Loyalty is also something they cannot understand, and they should quit if they're not happy.

Rocky can say whatever he wants, but at the end of the day, is he really going to allow this when he comes back as GE or GEIC? Think with your head, not your arse.

You know what? I am sick and tired of people who do not know what journalists do shooting their mouth off.

Since Rocky sees it fit to allow expletives, let me just say this: FUCK ALL OF YOU...

Yeah, like you guys are so great lah...Come and do two weeks of reporting and see if you have what it takes...Cakap banyak, tin kosong....

you are so full of your fucking self. thats all i can say. just because you stay connected to some most powerful players in the market doesnt mean that you write well. i think you dont even know how to hold a pen in between your fingers at all to write.

let me wither all your fucking writings because i find that your level of english is not even up to my fucking mark. you are in a very sad and sedative state right now although you advise fox communications.

you are not even fit to write in the first place because from what my experience at length reading your articles, i see nothing but pure black and white cover-ups. would you think i am a bimbo in reading your articles?

grow up brendan. you are not fuckingly up to my mark at all and you will never be up to my level.

its good to know that you have your connections but somehow you have misused them to your offshoots, leveled at a certain par excellence without proper reform

reading your shit would be much of an insult to me as i find enid blyton's books better than you pots of shitholes.

let me expressly remind you that in no time, you will swoon down to where your former life form was called amoeba.

rocky may have gotten all the fucking from you but somehow, he still stands tall. i dont need shit nits from you ever. so, keep your articles in the garbage in front of your house, allowing your bloody dog to pee upon.

oh, i have forgotten. was that idiot ever dragged to court in singapore before coming here?

pissed off

guantanamo,

whatever I have become - bitter - racist or a royal pain in the butt - ist all because of the racism that stifles this country. I have been here for five generations and yet I am called a bangsa asing - but a first generation jawa tempe qualifies to hold high office.
To all of you racist shitheads - we Indians have an edge over you when it comes to journalism. Eat that!

Hello NSTP! Get ready for the great clean up v v soon.
Balai Berita was abuzz with someone attending his so called last board meeting yesterday (Dec 22 2008). Cannot trust the bugger maa!
So Hishamuddin "Karaoke" Aun, Syed "Alcohol" Nazdri, Kamrul "Joan Lau" Idris - the three useless Malays! together with Lee "Bookie" Ah Chai, Lionel"Motherfcuker" Morais n Chandra "Master Conspirator" Segar better start thinking!
Hisham is being considered for a position as director of corporate communications (how to mingle with female artiste; Syed Nazdri as director of training (how to make the best beer in town) and Kamrul Idris as director of research (to check dirty panties)!
As for Ah Chai, Lionel and Chandra...dont worry, be happy!

Den Tgkt 6 NSTP,

by saying such nasty things - you have strongly supported my statement. We Indians are discriminated here and you have just proven it. We are being abused in this country by the likes of you.

By the way - trying having some class will ya!

Alahai Meenachi Koling! Marah ko...
Ekau yang bersemangat kato "first generation jawa tempe" la... Lopeh tu ekau banggo "we Indians have an edge over you when it comes to journalism".
Skrg nak raso marah bilo den bahaso bangso ekau! Sejarah Tanah Melayu dah buktikan orghang ekau pandai putarbolit sobab tu ekau banggo diri!!! Porrah la!
Kenkawan kampong den pun ramai Cino ngan Hindu. Takdo lak ambek kesompatan tikam bolakang orghang!!!
Apopun Meenachi! Sejarah NSTP ni ramai tahu kojo kerabat ekau selamo ni.
Kenkawan den kato Kalimullah tu keturunan Koling sekongko ngan Bendan Pariah tikam ramai editor2 ngan wartawan kanan Melayu.
Dio sepakat ngan Chandra "Kepalo Master Konspirator" Segar ngan budak koling pendek Leonal Morris hina orghang Melayu dan Islam. Dio suko bilo ado berito jatuh maruah orghang Melayu/Islam.
Dalam sejarah NSTP, tak ponah ado CEO ngan Editor2 Melayu kono tarik hidung Koling. Den ulang yo... Tak Ponah! Syed Feizal, Hishamuddin Aun, Manjo, Mus, Syed Nazri n Kamarul Idreh jadi baruah dan bangsat Koling koling d NSTP.
Kenkawan den kato, editor2 Melayu ni kaki mabok, kaki batino, kaki karaoke. Macam ni ko nak jago suratkabar media nak naikkan martabat bangso Melayu ngan Umno. Memang dasar takdo maruah. Jadi editor2 Melayu yang skrg ni di NSTP serupo ajo ngan ekau Meenachi Koling. Apo dapek sapu ajo, lopeh mabok, dio pun monyalak anjing konon dio hebat perjuangkan nasib bangsa Melayu.
Den tak dongar cerito editor Star ko, Sun ko, Nesan ko, Nanyang ko, nak perjuangkan bangso Melayu. Den tak salahkan dio tu sobabnyo taukeh dio masing2 ado agenda dan misi bangso dio.
Dah la Meenachi, ekau buek ajo la kojo ekau. Kalau ekau bagus sangat den cadangkan ekau poyi kek Star ko Nesan ko. Ekau terimo ajo la durian runtuh jaman Kalimullah.
Sobabnyo jaman Paklah ni, macam2 sejarah dio cipto seantero dunio!

Hi Meenachi Indian! Don't worry so much about these motherfkrs. Read again what Rocky wrote for this posting. Read carefully and understand it. Then you will know who the real culprits are in NSTP. They include everyone the Indians, Chinese, Malays and other races. So dear, if you are not one of 'em ... Don't Worry, Be Happy!
