The Chinese newspapers have long been accused of being seemingly pro-Pakatan Rakyat in their coverage, especially showing sympathies to the DAP.
So it came as no surprise that the scandal involving Nga Kor Ming’s wife have been played down.
Except for Nanyang, the other mainstream Chinese papers only saw it fit to use the tender controversy in their Perak editions especially Sin Chew.
The English and Bahasa Malaysia newspapers have given wide coverage to the issue which exposed how Nga’s wife, Wong Seow Chin, – who owns a tailor shop – was given the tender to make suits for the state leaders during Pakatan’s short lived state government.
Although her shop put in the most expensive tender, the award went to her – presumably because of Nga’s influence.
We are talking about the earliest stages of the Pakatan Rakyat state government and they were already starting to be corrupt.
Well, the DAP zombies will say this is nothing compared to what the Barisan Nasional leaders have stolen.
The point is this – whether small or big, we should not accept any such abuses.
Well, the holier than thou Nga can only say that this issue was another Barisan spin.
This portal believed that Nga, a lawyer, can do better. He dare not even deny!
YB, you will be going to church on Christmas Day, surely you cannot face God with such a simplistic dismissal.
You should deny or sue the pants off the BN state government if it is not true.
But this portal also regrets that the Chinese media did not see it fit to play up this scandal.
When MCA Perak Youth chief Mah Hang Soon issued statements on this issue, NONE of the Chinese newspapers carried the statements.
Instead Sin Chew, Nanyang and China Press, in their Perak editions, carried reports from the tailor company clarifying the matter.
The shop denied it had sought the help of Nga to secure the tender to provide city councillors with suits and claimed Wong was only a minor shareholder.
Malaysiakini had also played down the issue, burying it in its usual protective way of helping the DAP.
