Tun Faisal's UMB is most efficient

I must commend Tun Faisal for being most effective in his 'war' against Pakatan Rakyat. The Special Officer to Home Minister Hishammuddin Tun Hussein and also a Pemuda Umno Youth Exco is perhaps better than what JASA and Umno information chief Ahmad Maslan are doing.

As a journalist for more than 30 years, I must admit that the manner in which Faisal organises his few hundreds 'cybertoopers' throughout the country is making impact to the extent that anything that comes from his team will immediately attract 'counter-attacks' from the Pakatan Rakyat's bloggers and twitters.

Ironically, most of his team bloggers are not paid - they are volunteers who pool around him for the sake of supporting the BN, the legitimate government.

Nope. I am not writing this for anything. I've known him for three years now but we seldom meet, only three or four times the most. We hardly know each other but do acknowledge each other's presence in the blogosphere and our respective duty. No special relationship. We are never close.

Some people, including those claiming to be the most popular bloggers (in their own category) may not like him but I am personally impressed with his new media unit (but not the few who serves Hisham at KDN who claimed to be knowing everybody in the media business and always lie to the minister and cheat him) that really works hard for the government.

(I don't trust bloggers' ranking as bloggers come in many categories - those with strict writing, strictly clean-cut political, profanity and non-profanity, personal attacks, etc. Just like journalism, there are sports, entertainment, politics, foreign relations, art, etc. For instance, we cannot simple put Datuk A Kadir Jasin, Tun Dr Mahathir and Rockybru in the same pool as others). 

And frankly, Tun Faisal's team is definitely far better off than that of any other ministers, including those who lead the Prime Minister's UMB (Unit Media Baru). Sorry to say, Datuk Seri Najib should replace them with a better team!

As a journo-blogger myself, I have noticed how Faisal's team works in Malacca, Selangor, Kedah, Kelantan, Terengganu and Johor. They never asked for any financial support. They just enjoy their duty, not like some bloggers who got their own paymaster. I don't too. So, those who have been questioning my 'perks' as a blogger, sorry to say that you are wrong!

Umno needs a strong and effective media team for the next general elections. Its going to be tough for BN. Many agree that we cannot undermine the Opposition's strength as their cybertroopers are also of first class.

But Umno, especially BN must engage suitable bloggers, twitters and Facebook comrades who really know as to how and when to strike at the Opposition. They must have their facts right or might lose their credibility.

Tun Faisal's UMB got what it takes to help boost BN chance of retaining its power in the next national poll. Defamation, libel, sedition and profanity have left the team. They are focusing more on factual instead.

Najib and BN for sure can rely on people like these...

wah wah wah, jai!

kemain lagi kau angkat tun faisal ni. heheheh...

tapi aku setuju.

berbanding pasukan umb lain, team dia memang bekerja keras. aku kenal kira-kira 20 orang budak2 dia di beberapa negeri dan diorang ni buat kerja sukarela. kalau ada imbuhan pun, sekali-sekala.

inilah semangat juang yang kita inginkan, berjuang bukan untuk nama dan wang tetapi untuk membantu bn.

a blogger too said...

salam bro,

sengketa dia dengan papagomo dan over ke belum? aku dengar baru2 ni diorang jumpa dalam pertemuan UMB di KDN...

harap2 dah ok la. jangan dengki sesama sendiri sebab kita sama2 buat kerja yang serupa.

KITA SERUPA (nyanyian zainal headwind)

phoenix said...

bro, blogging is not just about writing what we want and feel. must get the right fact. we must also be responsible for what we write or may end up in court. some bloggers like defaming people, whether they are with bn or pakatan. this shouldnt be the trend today. this include gutter politics which is not healthy to young readers out there.

sakuntala said...

hahahaahah!!!!

tun faisal ni memanglah ok tapi kadang2 tu tak ok sikit sebab 'lansi'. apa pun, pasukan siber dia memang memberi banyak kesan, terutama di negeri yang diperintah pakatan rakyat. semoga usaha mereka berbaloi...

jambalaya said...

salam tuan,

saya kenal tun faisal. kesian dia kena ketepi oleh dua tiga ekor pegawai media baru hisham di kdn. datuk hisham pulak mati2 percaya dengan dua tiga monyet ni kerana mereka selalu puji2 dia. inilah kelemahan hisham.

sepatutnya tun yang jadi teraju umb di kdn tapi ni tak, dapat kepada pegawai haprak yang busuk hati, berlagak pandai dan suka kenakan rakan sekerja yang lain.

bagaimanapun, syabas diucapkan kepada tun kerana mempunyai pasukan umb yang kuat dan berkesan.

i dont know what do you mean by efficient but some bloggers are just dirty bastards!

they only know how to produce craps in their posting!

zenith said...

bro jai,

are u also stopthelines?

pls lor... tell me!

penangan said...

salam tn,

selamat pagi dan selamat bersahur.

saya tak kenal tun faisal ni, cuma baca blog dia saja.

saya dapati dia memang ramai pengikut dan tulisannya bolehlah dikatakan antara yang terbaik jika dibandingkan dengan bloger bahasa melayu yang lain.

cuma keterampilannya di segi gaya bahasa kurang sikit, mungkin kerana dia bukan wartawan seperti tuan.

apa pun, dia memang rajin.

dennis adam said...

righto.

bloggers come in many categories, including the 'mencarut' ones.

i dont think rockybru can pool himself with bloggers like house pk, papagomo dan others. the scribe by a kadir jasin cannot be leveled with the nasty ones, right?

what about u, a serious and straight-forward blogger. u cant simply categorise your blog into the group of putra merdeka and jebat berkokok?

to me, each and every blogger comes in their own category, with their own specialties. they cant self-proclaim of being the best. high hit doesnt make u the best!

boleh percaya ke tun faisal ni?

dia sendiri kedekut nak mampus, berkira sangat..

sori la cakap....oopssss!!!!

mat gombau said...

alamak jai,

takkan kau tak dapek apo2 daripada umno atau bn? melampau kerajaan ni? den tau ado bloger top dapek elaun bulanan daripado mentori atau umno. tapi den respek la kau ni sobab yang den tau, cumo kau sorang yang tulih untuk agensi berita bangsa2 bersatu. buleh tahan gak kau dapek, kan? hahahaha...

yang polik eh, sekali2 kau pun bantai gak kerajaan. memang beginilah caro yang boto. bloger lain semuo tulih yang elok yo pasal kerajaan. yang tak boto pun dio kato elok. kau yo yang lain sikit.

kerajaan memang ado kelebihan dan kekurangan, macam tu yo pembangkang.

kalau asyik semuo boto yo siapo lak yang salah, yo tak?

Hope Najib Razak, Ahmad Maslan, JASA read this article...pegawai-pegawai mereka lapor yang baik-baik saja JH!

special officer said...

cant agree more, bro.

ahmad maslan is not delivering his best, and so is jasa under fuad hasan.

pm should realise that his new media team too is lagging behind in terms of info and action. i wonder how pm could appoint such people to that team!

at least what tun faisal is doing really makes some impact there, regardless of who he is.

what's important is the synergy and its effectiveness, right?

pembaca banyak blog said...

bro,

tun faisal is in a different pool.

papa gomo in another category.

tun dr m is in a special class.

so are u, bru, bigdog, voice, jebatmust die and others in the same group.

so, respect each other!

an observer said...

bro,

i dont like the few people u mentioned leading hisham's new media team. they are pretenders, claiming credit for other people's good product.

arent they ashamed of themselves?

hisham should know that this type of officers would one day bring him down!

he will win sembrong in the next general election but his vice president seat in umno is at stake because such media officers are not doing their job in order!

Anonymous said...

self proclaim is normal for some bloggers who thought they are the best. yup, they are the best in that stupid and silly category. no doubt about it!

big mouth said...

kalau ikutkan sebegitu ramai bloger yang tun faisal kena taja, dia mestilah jutawan yang ada income dua tiga juta sebulan.

ni tak. memang dia ada gaji dan bisnes kecil tapi takkan mampu bayar semua orang di bawahnya.

tak seperti menteri dan ahli politik lain seperti zahid hamidi dan shabery chik serta aziz baling yang memang bela kumpulan bloger mereka sendiri!

no comment, except that some bloggers have the ego that they can bring down a government!

bull!

pantekobau said...

mana dia dapat title 'tun' tu?


kahkahkahkahkah!

Other than coming up with defending the government by repling and commenting on blogs posting I see that nobody takes up to reply, answer or comment on comments inserted in Yahoo!! especially Yahoo! Malaysia that is always pro opposition. I have made several attempts to reply and to counter the allegations in Yahoo! and also received negative feedbacks and replies from purportedly pro opposition commentators.They can be very forceful and very abusive.Many stories like on Lynas and also on Rosmah were not properly answered by us in the government Here i suggest pro govt or pro BN bloogers should be vigilant and must counter those allegations quickly.Yahoo! is read and accessed by millions and more Malaysian overseas than private blogs

some good blogs are worth read but too many are just idiotic!

tun ni bagus jugak walaupun ada yang tak suka kat dia, jeles kot. tapi yg aku dengar kat kdn jawatan dia dah disapu oleh orang baru kepercayaan hisham. orang bekas akhbar bh, berlagak pulak. sama la macam tun...hehehehe

old jaguar said...

agaknya kalau tun faisal bertanding dalam pru akan datang dan menang, jawatan paling sesuai untuk dia ialah timbalan menteri penerangan. memang layak sandang jawatan tu sebab rangkaian medianya luas dan dia juga senang diajak berunding...

agak2 ada peluang tak dia jadi YB, jai?

The fact that all the UMNO Bloggers have nothing worth writing about reflects their level of Intelligence!!

Kalau dah tak ada Otak Cuma Mencarut sahaja Boleh!!

Tun Faisal Ismail bin Aziz said...

Tq Jai for the piece and tq all for the comments. Appreciate them all :)

Aku Peduli Apa @ APA said...

Assalam semua.
Terbaik bro Jai..eventhough i'm saying goodbye soon.

Wassalam.
