So, it has boiled down to this;
Journalists always kena sue what. Part of the job hazards.
I guess Azam learnt from Guan Eng and his father Kit Siang, Anwar, and many other politicians, who had sued journalists and won quite a lot of money.
Probably that's also the only real way to clear his name as he had been deemed guilty from the very start anyway.
No need to wait for the investigations to be completed as even if they later found him to be innocent, the damage has already been done.
Well, even if he wins the case in court, people will still say bad things about him and may even claim that the court was fixed.
But at least he will get RM10 million from the journalist, and that's a lot more than the value of the shares he was accused to have acquired corruptly.
Then again, that depends on whether he or the journalist was right.
If the journalist have all of her facts right, then she doesn't have to fear going to court.
I think Guan Eng, his father, Anwar and many others would agree with that.
I know that it's a bit of a hassle going to court, but that's part of the inconvenience that comes with the job of a journalist.
They cannot simply hantam and write whatever they want.
Honestly, I don't know why anyone wants to become a journalist considering the risks involved.
It actually offers only little in terms of salary, glamour and excitement for those who truly want to maintain journalism as a noble profession.
Most of the money, glamour and excitement in journalism ( at least in this country) are only for those who know how to play office politics and kiss ass in the newsroom.
Well, at least that's what I was told by journalist friends.
Anyway, I wouldn't worry about the journalist who was sued by Azam as she had already insisted that she got all her facts right.
The way she said it, I think she's going to win the case and Azam will then be forced to resign in shame.....I guess....
Errrr....I think so....
No way that she buta-buta wrote those articles to make people jump on Azam's head like that....right?
Hmmm, I do wonder whether Azam will also later sue other journalists who wrote as if he had already been found guilty these past few days.....
Guan Eng, his father, Anwar and many other politicians may likely do that if they were in his shoes...I think.
Can buta-buta make money one.
