|Kini says sorry to her
Withdraw, Retract, and Apology, x2. It is rare to catch Malaysiakini saying sorry for what it has published but to get a double apology on the same day over the same story from the hard-hitting independent pro-Opposition news site is almost never! But that's exactly what former Securities Commission chairman Zarinah Anwar and husband Azizan Abdul Rahman got today ... Click Apology to Zarinah and Azizan.
Why the apology does not spell out Zarinah's name in full leaves one wondering, Usually, news organisations pay attention to such details after they have screwed up big time. In any case, it is good to note that news portals are behaving more like mainstream media these days in that they can be convinced to apologize for their /honest mistakes or/and their malice. It's good for the profession.
Now that the Malaysiakini has said sorry for using the Asia Sentinel article, Asia Sentinel should also apologize to Zarinah and Azizan. It's only right.
