Bernama becomes spin doctoring BN bitch

This is an example of RUBBISH JOURNALISM at work.

What has Anwar got to do with Wolfowitz's current problems? What was the purpose of putting Anwar's name on the headline, if not hoping to tar him with a scandal totally unrelated to him?

If this is the type of garbage partisan journalism that Bernama represents, it seems like the appointment of Yong Soo Heong as Bernama Editor-in-Chief a few short weeks ago has done absolutely nothing but destroy the credibility of this news agency.

Is this the "quality, professional" mainstream journalism that bloggers are supposed to emulate?

Rubbish! Absolute farkin rubbish! I'm too disgusted for words.

KUALA LUMPUR, April 26 (Bernama) -- While Former Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is battling it out to win some votes for Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) in Saturday's Ijok by-election, his longtime ally Paul Wolfowitz is battling for survival as World Bank President.

There have been mounting calls for Wolfowitz's resignation after it was discovered that he had approved a promotion and hefty pay rise for his girlfriend, Shaha Riza, an employee at the World Bank, before she was assigned to work at the U.S. State Department.
