ZAM left in the lurch by his ex-boss

Now, it is very clear that former PM Dr. Mahathir Mohamad has changed somewhat in his view on online alternative media. The old man is quite positive about it now.

It has, however, left his ex-hulubalang in the agitprop department Zainuddin Maidin in the lurch. ZAM, inspired by the then crusading attitude of his ex-boss against online alternative media, attacked it as tools of "American imperialism" or things like that.

I don't know what ZAM has to say now about his ex-boss' change of attitude.

By the way, it has also been amply demonstrated that even Utusan Malaysia of which he is an ex-Chief Editor, also reported the victim of the ear-squat scandal as a "wanita rakyat China bogel ". So, don't just blame the Chinese-language newspapers, dude.

Of course, I still remember how Utusan Malaysia reported that ex-US embassador John Malott appeared in a close-door meeting with Dr. Wan Azizah and her supporters in a hotel in Petaling Jaya while the former envoy was physically in California.
