Mus is a bit of a hero among Pakatan supporters when he quit NST. His Facebook page later on became quite popular for its anti-BN postings.
I wrote about Mus since back then as a matter of facts.
And he's not the only prominent journalist turned anti-BN that I highlighted.
This one is about former Utusan editor Ku Seman,
I wrote about these guys as a matter of facts as I believe I know how they felt when they quit their job at that time.
I believe I have always been consistent on my unhappiness about how these journalists were treated by their bosses and media outlets.
Here's another one, but this guy (who is not famous like Mus and Ku Seman) requested anonymity;
The way I see it, cases such as these contributed to the BN's defeat in GE14.
The culprits are the media bosses, who don't care about journalism but instead only wanted to secure their positions by doing the ampu bodek things and purging their supposed rivals in the organisation.
Despite the nauseating praises for BN published by them, I don't think that they sincerely care about even Najib. It's all just about themselves.
I believe I have been consistent in criticising them too.
I wrote this not long before GE14 when I was in a rather foul mood.
Well, I got pissed off once in a while, okay.
Now that people like Mus and maybe later Ku Seman are taking over control of these media outlets, I hope things will turned out right.
A new dawn for Malaysian journalism, hopefully.
Let's hope that it's not a repeat of the same thing - just a turn around from bodeking BN to bodeking PH.
Let's also hope that it's not just a return to the days when Dr Mahathir was PM and Anwar was his deputy during the 1990s.
Critics of the establishment at that time always complained about how the media was being shackled.
Anwar's grip on the mainstream media at that time was said to be the worst.
Ask any journalists from those years and they would probably agree with that.
Ask Mus and Ku Seman if you may. They are from that era too.
Hopefully, Mus will give the middle finger to any PH politician, minister or media handler who tries to dictate how Media Prima news outlets should publish their stories.
Even if Dr Mahathir calls for some favours which could possibly jeopardise journalistic integrity of Media Prima news outlets, I hope Mus will say;
"I'm sorry Tun. We can't do that. That's against our journalistic principles and ethics. Furthermore, our duty as journalists is to safeguard the rakyat's interests and nothing else."
I expect nothing less than that from Mus, Ku Seman and other journalists like them once they control those media outlets.
