MalaysiaKini - Pakatan Rakyat's propaganda arm
Anyone who has been into the portal the last few years knows that Malaysiakini has actively campaigned for Pakatan. That is okay actually. It’s their right to take sides. Just don’t claim to be free and fair, and condemn the mainstream media as biased, one sided and controlled.
The news there is not only 90% about Pakatan, the slant and the spin is ridiculously anti BN. In fact, its CEP Pramesh Chandra openly tweets against the BN.
Negative news about Pakatan does not see light of day but negative news about Najib and Umno and BN, in that order, are given big play up.
So if you are a reader of Malaysiakini, you will think that 80% of Malaysians support Bersih, Ambiga is a saint sent down to save Malaysia from unfair and unfree elections, Najib and his wife are murderers, everyone in Umno is stupid and corrupt, and Anwar Ibrahim is God’s gift to mankind and Nurul Izzah should be PM. And Malaysiakini is the only unbiased media in the country.
Everyone hates Utusan Malaysia but the truth is that Malaysiakini is Pakatan’s version of Utusan. It is unshamedly pro Pakatan, it has no qualms about twisting stories about the BN and when they are wrong, they quickly pull out the story and behave like it never existed. Can you blame the Umno people if they hate Malaysiakini the way the Chinese hate Utusan?
