They are more keen to write about Umno, portraying the prospect that Umno can form the government 'alone' and winning the upcoming general election without any assistance from its allies MCA, MIC, Gerakan and others in the political pact.
undermining its partners in BN spells trouble. There are some elements of racism in their jottings by putting the Malay party's interest above the importance of helping BN wins the national poll.
They are actually saboteurs to ruling government. Uplifting Umno alone and condemning others would eventually weaken BN further, thus its chance to remain in power after the 13th general election hinges only on chance and luck!
I am not certain if my message about this 'danger' really got to the head of at least three ministers, two deputy ministers, three secretary-generals, four director-generals and some high ranking officials who deal directly with news and media, notably the new media.
They organised series of seminar and brainstorming session for their respective group of bloggers but nothing change! Most of their bloggers are still very much pro-Umno and not pro-BN. If they are pro-BN, they will also help MCA, MIC, Gerakan and other BN component parties in their campaign and struggle.
However, they took it for granted. They hit out hard at Chui Soi Lek, Palanivel and Gerakan leaders which made them look more like the opposition and as equal as Anwar Ibrahim, Nik Aziz and Lim Kit Siang.
In the latest case, MCA president Chua Soi Lek was taken aback by some pro-Umno bloggers who dont bother about BN, To them, BN is okay to lose but not Umno as the Malay party should stand on its own.
Moreover, these bloggers like to personalise and dramatise bickerings within MCA, MIC and Gerakan. To some extent, their writings failed to recognise BN as they only see Umno as Barisan Nasional.
So, what is their motive and objective, plus their perception on BN itself?
Chua has reasons to avow his displeasure at some pro-Umno blogers who do not care for BN. To them,, Umno is BN and BN is Umno, and as such other parties in BN should stay put and don;t disturb Umno.
KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 29 – MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek today condemned the behaviour of pro-Umno bloggers who he claimed were only interested in “scoops and spinning” rather than helping out his party.
Dr Chua had blamed the pro-Umno blogger who published his remarks against former president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat for starting the public tiff between the two, claiming that the chat had been behind closed doors
“They obviously do not honour what was discussed ... It was a closed door interaction to talk about MCA’s preparation for general election,” Dr Chua (picture) explained in a press conference here.
“It was just a chit-chat, some of (my remarks) were in a joking form ... So obviously they have no reporting ethics.”
“I would like to condemn their behaviour, and the fact that they broke that promise,” Dr Chua added, referring to the bloggers’ pledge to not publish any of his remarks that was made in a friendly manner.
