Blogger gone ‘Goblok’?

Datuk Rocky’s post about Zam leaving SOPO blogging

Ex-Chief Editor of a major daily and Information Minister-turned-SOPO blogger  Tan Sri Zainuddin “Zam” Maidin calls it quits after his breakfast with another Ex-Minister and an appointment with an Ex-Prime Minister were highlighted in a not so politically-correct way.

It is ashamed for Tan Sri Zam to be very slighted, when the push comes to shove. After all, he was not a newbie to the political game.

Something from the archive:

Eight years ago, Zam called SOPO bloggers as "Goblok"

Eight years ago, Zam called SOPO bloggers as “Goblok”

One time during the dark ages of PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Abdullah Ahmad Badawi tenure, Zam called bloggers as “Goblok”. That was not really nice since back then those he was referring as “Goblok” were once his peers in journalism including Dato’ A. Kadir Jasin (his fellow breakfast-mate seen in this photo).

Also, he was the member of Cabinet in-charge of journos.

Zam has now complained about him being talked about town as part of Tun Daim’s posse, which itself has a negative connotation to some people. That was not the best of luck since by his own admission, that was his first breakfast engagement with the one-time ‘Maestro of (Capital) Market’.

The fact is that Zam would probably need to check when did many people started talking about this “Breakfast” and viralised the story (including the photo). Perhaps, there was a specific point when the photo was consciously made public via a certain Facebook and Instagram account.

Zam should realise the personalities he would enjoy the company with. Harmless meals could go-blogs.

  1. That’s a gud un – “Harmless meals could go-blogs.” But ding-donging blokes do, too.

    Didn’t he ding dong from a nobody to somebody as Utusan boss then to a Minister, taking swipes at former colleagues and peers. Then tumbled down with Tun Dol.

    If you are not careful when at the top of your career, when you tumble down, nobody cares about you, even with Tan Sri title and what not.

    If true he is “part of Tun Daim’s posse”, isn’t that another dong, for he was part of the Tun Dol set up that Tun Dr Mahathir, Tun Daim etc tried and successfully brought down.

    Now sensitive at being associated with Tun Daim, eh? Didn’t they say when you meet a …… and a menacing ular, whack the …… first?

    • Tun Dr Mahathir and Tun Daim had their weaknesses (who hasn’t?) but things got so bad under Tun Dol and worse still under Najib now that TDM has become a hero.

      Najib wants to rush to an advanced nation status at the expense of Malay rights and interests, even wanting to discard the Sedition Act that protects Malay rights and interests. I strongly support those who want him replaced.

      In that respect, it’s good that the go-blog fella quits sopo blogging – cannot tell which side he will dong next.
