Every journalist who is not too stupid or too full of himself to notice what is going on knows that what he does is morally indefensible. He is a kind of confidence man, preying on people's vanity, ignorance, or loneliness, gaining their trust and betraying them without remorse.

Malaysiakini - PKR: There will be change of gov't
Dr Syed Husin made a pathetic attempt to defend Anwar Ibrahim’s half-past-six '916'.
Much to my immense disappointment (because I used to respect Dr Husin so much) he shamelessly dug in to embrace-defend Anwar's proclaimed (but failed) power through political frogs.
Syed Husin said BN MPs had indeed planned to defect to PKR but - get this - he blamed the powers-that-be (meaning the government formed by the ruling party) for using - and man oh man get this also - underhanded tactics to forestall the party defection.
Dr Husin, aren’t you aware that political party defectors are cheats, who campaigned as Party A candidates, and once elected, would jump across to be Party B representatives?
It doesn’t really matter whether the defectors are from the opposition or ruling party, when defection is defection, and the defectors are cheats!
And the party encouraging, enticing and egging defections and welcoming those cheats is a cheat too, in fact a far bigger cheat because it ought to know better.
So who had been indulging in underhanded tactics?
Just remember how the saying goes, "When looking for faults use a mirror, not a telescope"
So, Dr Syed, you go & take a look in the mirror to see who's the most underhanded of them all! Reformasi my bloody foot!
If Pak Nik Aziz is the spiritual leader of PAS, then I would consider the Lion of Gelugor as the DAP's spiritual leader (of political principles).
... because thank goodness the DAP has a man like Karpal Singh to pull those enamoured by the man man lai bullsh*t of frogs, back from the brink.
But it took a while for the other DAP leaders like Kulasegaran to echo Karpal Singh's resolute stand against embracing slimy frogs. In this respect I have been very much disappointed with Uncle Lim and Lim GE for not being more proactively vocal against party defections.
Anyway, (for all his intellectualism) like a lemming, Dr Husin continued Anwar Ibrahim’s man man lai nonsense, saying its failure to take over as promised on Sept 16 did not mean it will fail to do so forever.
He boasted meaninglessly: “If (the power transfer) is not tomorrow, it will be the day after tomorrow; if it is not in the near future, it will be in the 13th general election (due 2013).”
Dr, why don't you let that 916 bull rest. If Anwar had f* up his unwarranted (deformasi, not reformasi) boast, let it be. Let that embarassing bull fade away.
Your de facto leader's attempted deformasi subversion of democracy's ballot box had been an abject failure, so why perpetuate the shameless concept of an underhanded seizure of power with your shameless “If the power transfer is not tomorrow, it will be the day after tomorrow"?
Why defend the indefensible? Why don't you wait until 2013 to claim your political victory in a legitimate manner?
Yes, you may be thinking you were defending Anwar's monumental bullsh*t of unmitigated proportion and justifying his reckless braggadocio by blaming the BN for its (I still can't believe your brazen nerve) underhanded tactics, but are you aware that in that process you have insulted the intelligence of both your PKR members and supporters?
I am disgusted with you. To think I once respected you so much.
