The MOLE, going live midnight. We were banking on a quiet Hari Malaysia celebration tomorrow so that we can quietly celebrate the realisation of The Mole, a blog newspaper that has been a work-in-progress for over two yeRs. But now that the Prime Minister is making some major policy statements tonight to usher in 16 September, we can forget about doing it quietly.

What we do, basically, is listen to the endless chatter on blogosphere, twitter and other forms of social media and present it to you in the form of easy-to-digest news. Our journlists will verify each news so that you, our dear Readers, do not have to live with half-truths and unconfirmed rumours. Tonight, for example, after the PM makes his address, there will be thousands of blog postings, tweets and Facebook entries discussing the policy changes he is planning to make. Some pros and some cons. Some people will misinterpret things while others may want to mislead you, which happens so often these days in the social media. We at the MOLE don'T care for either, all we care about is dissecting all that din and chatter on blogs and other social media, and presenting the truth to you in the simplest of forms.

You may have read on some blogs and news sites that I was Going to use this portal, The MOLE, to lead an onslaught against Najib Razak.
Not true at all.
But that is the risk of reading stuff that's not verified - you end up believing crap, sometimes.
