A bunch of habitual liars

Riong Kali’s pro-Opposition news portal inadvertently nothing but a bunch of habitual liars and/or news item manipulators. This is despite the had a new editorial team migrated from NST recently. Yesterday, they issued a second apology, within a span of a week for deception or false reporting.

News portal TMI tenders second apology in a week

Oct 25 — The Malaysian Insider (TMI) yesterday issued an apology to the Securities Commission (SC) and a retraction over a related news article, making it the second time the news portal has done so in under a week.

In a piece published in its “Side Views” section yesterday, the note by the news portal described its report “SC to order Sime general offer for E&O, say sources” published in August 2012 to be “untrue”.

“The statement in the said article that was attributed to the SC was untrue and was published without verification with the SC. The report has now been withdrawn as it is untrue and false.

“We apologise to the Securities Commission for the said untrue report,” said the unsigned statement.

The offending article alleged that the regulator was ordering Sime Darby to conduct a general offer for the remaining shares in E&O that it did not already own, following the former’s acquisition of a 30 per cent stake in the latter firm.

This did not materialise and resulted in the news portal being investigated by the SC last year.

Last week, the news portal was also forced to apologise to Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir over two articles alleging the Kedah mentri besar of engaging in “money politics” in his unsuccessful bid for an Umno vice presidency on Saturday.

“The Malaysian Insider apologises to Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir over its report titled ‘Mukhriz raises the stakes in VP race with 1.2 million SMS blast plus ‘windfall’ for party branches — sources’, and its Bahasa Malaysia version, ‘Jentera kempen Mukhriz agresif, ‘hujan emas’ dijangka turun bermula lewat malam’,” the news portal wrote after being threatened with a laswuit over the reports.

Yesterday, state sovereign fund Khazanah Nasional also took aim at the news portal for what it described as “irresponsible reporting”, alleging that two articles published on the site portrayed the government-linked firm as uncooperative with national auditors.

It demanded both an apology and retraction for two articles, “Parliament’s bipartisan oversight panel probes Khazanah’s costly ventures” and “PAC siasat perbelanjaan melampau Khazanah”, saying it will consider legal action if this was not forthcoming.

***************

Last Saturday on the morning where 146,500 UMNO delegates from 20,800 branches in 191 divisions had their AGM and casted their votes to elect divisional committee leaders, 25 Supreme Council members and 3 Vice Presidents, TMI issued an apology to MB Kedah Dato’ Paduka Mukhriz Mahathir for their false report of him sending out 1.2 million SMSes.

This has now becomes a pattern for TMI. This time two years ago, they had to take advertisements in NST, The Star and Berita Harian for perpetuating a lie about former Malaysia Airlines Chairman Tan Sri Tajudin Ramli who was alleged to have aggregated a loss of RM8.1 billion when he was heading the national carrier. TMI had to apologise or risk a suit of RM200 million clamped against them because they have no shred of evidence to substantiate the perpetual lie Opposition leaders attempted to smear Tajudin’s name in mud  in their sordid politics of demonise the Federal Government.

The personalities and key people within the Riong Kali news portal themselves have eroded the integrity and credibility of The Malaysian Insider with their deemed acts of malice through deception, false reporting, manipulation from the facts and truth and speculation with sinister agenda.

  1. Bunch of traitor. Another example, it was barely 10 minutes ago that the Budget was presented and Tony Pua has already offered his “expert” opinion, begin to be publish widely.

    • We also must shit their “expert” opinion with our own opinions, expert or not so expert.

      I’d be giving out with my own opinions when in the mood to read their shit opinions.

      They should rightly be called shit opinions on the Budget if they put them out barely 10 minutes after the Budget was presented. They cannot be opinions on the Budget – just some shit they wrote unrelated to the Budget presented by PM.

      They could be opinions on Anwar’s so-called Budget.

  2. IDIOTS WILL ALWAYS BE IDIOTS !

  3. […] The “thirteen million plus Ringgit” guy rambles…. […]

  4. […] under-achievements, weaknesses and
    insecurities  will be discovered by the public, please go
    here, here and […]

  5. Org Malaysia hati yahudi memang begitu…

  6. […] Conveniently, they retracted and apologised. Just like Riong Kali dot com conveniently lie or erroneously report anything and nonchalantly apologise later. […]

  7. […] ya, The Malaysian Insider did play a dirty number on Mukhriz Mahathir too. A very dirty number […]
