The Pakatan Rakyat fans have been all excited since this morning, spending their office time, if they are working that is, tweeting and updating their Facebook that a certain Western journalist Roger Mitton has written a story in the Phnom Penh Times that Najib Tun Razak met Altantuya in Paris.
Many young Malaysians, especially the brain fried Pakatan Rakyat supporters, have never heard of Roger Mitton but this former correspondent of the now defunct Asiaweek magazine has always dedicated himself to promoting Anwar.
When he was in Kuala Lumnpur as a correspondent, this portal has been informed, Mitton was always in the company of the Dear Sodomist. His numerous apple polishing pieces of Anwar included “Power Play: When Will Anwar Succeed Mahathir” in the Oct 25, 1995 issue and “Asean Loses Critic Anwar” in the Sept 18, 1998 issue.
You just have to do a search to find the long list of praises that Mitton has heaped on Anwar. He probably dreamed of Anwar at night.
The failed journalist has now ended up working for a low circulation newspaper in Cambodia and is probably putting his bets on Anwar, hoping that Pakatan Rakyat will come into power and that he would get a media consultant job.
In his latest venom, Mitton has claimed that Najib met Altantuya in Paris – the kind of spin you hear from psychos like Tian Chua.
But Mitton should know better – show the evidence. That’s the cardinal rule of journalism. He has not been able to back his claim, relying on hear say to attack the PM.
That’s not journalism but pure lies, in the same standard as Malaysiakini. He may have heard it from “his sources” – Tian Chua?
Tian Chua, as many of us recalled, was once caught circulating a badly doctored picture of Najib and Altantuya.
Although he was caught red-handed, he has amazingly managed to continue projecting himself as a righteous and principled PKR MP talking of the truth and accountability.
Roger Mitton, show us the evidence, produce it! Allegations are easy. Show to the whole world the proof, then we will believe you – and not just the lapping dogs of Pakatan Rakyat.
