Najib must, at all cost, consider Rocky as Editorial Adviser or Group Editor of the NST!

Rocky Yes!

Johan Jaafar No!

Ahmad Talib No!


And neither Ahmad Talib nor Johan Jaafar should be considered to re-boot, to re-charge, to re-fresh, to take charge of the NSTP to bring it to a respectable level where Malaysians can once again say "not a bad paper"! And that is all that we want.
For our country's total enlightenment and towards helping with a OneMalaysia concept, the job should be given to Rocky aka Ahiruddin Attan! I do not think Ahmad Talib and Johan Jaafar are the right candidates for the job!
I will tell you why Rocky aka Ahiruddin Attan should be considered to take charge of this ailing and once premier Malaysian English paper called the New Straits Timers. I know Rocky a lot better than I know Ahmad Talib (sorry Tok Mat for I must tell the truth about how I feel, for certain important issues are beyond good manners). Also as a friend Rocky and I are bonded a lot closer than I would be with Ahmad Talib, let alone with Johan Jaafar.
As far as I can tell Rocky has always been a level headed writer and as a blogger he commands respect from fellow bloggers. He presents good and logical views when defending Najib Tun Razak againsts the onslaught of personal attacks against the PM expecially vis-a-vis the Altantuya case.
I do not see Ahmad Talib or Johan Jaafar trying to put in their two-bits worth of their thought defending Najib in any matter in their column or blogsites.
All I can see in Ahmad Talib's blogsite is just about drinking teh tarik with Muttu, Ah Chong and Ali and never once did I see Ahmad Talib shooting down writers like RPK and defending Najib when RPK writes smut on so many issues while trying to denigrate and especially to implicate the now-Prime Minister of Malaysia in a murder case.
Johan Jaafar, meanwhile tries to impress people with his convoluted English when trying to show to the world that he is God's gift to the English language and a denizen of many intellectual issues from movies to books and other hoity-toity subjects such as Voltaire, Rousseau and never once have I seen his column defending Najib.
Once I tried to have a conversation with this Johan Jaafar, a confirmed Anwarista as far as I am concerned, who by the way has no respect for Najib in the first place, I was brushed off like a pariah. To him no one is good enough!
And yet, if this is true, then Najib has committed these two major faux pas by appointing Ahmad Talib and Johan Jaafarf to take charge of the NSTP and a sick newspaper called the New Straits Times. Sir if this isn't too late I would like you to re-consider Rocky to take charge of the NSTP or at least the NST.
Him at the helm of this sick newspaper I think people, Malaysian people, will again be given a hope. After all this is what you are being elevated to do, to give people more hope. And appointing Ahmad Talib and Johan Jaafar is like sliding back to a mental depression!
I don't think I can handle it sir! Meanwhile we will still remain loyal to your leadership!

Just because Rocky buys you beers at the Press club every night, doesn't make him a good editor, Bro.

If it was not for Ahmad Talib, there would be no Rocky, my friend.

Can't see straight (oops, no pun intended)

Dear pasquale,
i dont know why u are so against ahmad talib just because he didnt seems to go around hantaming rpk and the other slimeballs. Najib is a subtle guy. u of all people should know that. He knows that ahmad have his own ways of doing things. In my opinion, Najib made a smart move. With ahmad talib as nstp editorial adviser, the post of group editor in chief is as good as rocky's. That is if he really wants it. Hishamuddin Aun wont last long in that post with ahmad at the top. Even rocky supported ahmad's appointment. Read his post in his other blog over the matter. Just sabar la.

NSTP has a culture where any outsider will not get the full cooperation from the staff.Johan Jaafar will have the same problem.

If Najib is smart(unfortunately he is not),he would put Ahmad Taib in Johan's position and Rocky in the Editorial.

WHAT DO EXPECT FROM ROCKY'S BALL CARRIERS

Anonymous said...

ha, ha, ha, I wet my pant laughing all the way. rocky, my foot, a lallang blowing with the wind. always defend the indefensible. so just because he defended najib the unwanted pm, he should be given the post? no one really knows whether najib is in any way involved in all the dirty baggages that he carried along. be more real, my friend, we need newspaper reporting the truth and not spin and lies.

Now you are behaving like a PM......Good dream and enjoy while it lasts!!

Dear Rusdi,

Will replacing 1 crony for another make Malaysians more likely to read the NST?

I doubt so.

Still, Najib should do so, not because of Rocky's "ability" but because he should be grateful - Rocky has carried his balls for this long.

Surely that kind of service deserves some reward....LOL!

Sentinel said...

Between being a good manager and a good editor, you must be clear what NST needs. NST perhaps needs both but of greater urgency, if you say that NST is a "sick" paper, then the priority is a good manager.

One who will do a rescue job like Jala to MAS, or whoever it was that was deeply invovled in the saving of Bank Bumiputra from liquidation or bankruptcy. Someone who will "chop heads" and reduce head count and salaries across the board.

But if you are pitching for Rocky for the chief editor job, that's a different matter although he will have to work under a supremo manager to save the company first.

But if I were Rocky, I wonder if I need that job. It is bound to be stressful and the company will be in no financial position to pay well now.

Don't care who will be in charge... anyway NST doesn't report everything that people want to know... my friend & i already boycott NST... hope one day NST will change.. or else disappear from the earth

ANOTHER NAJIB'S BOZOS ?

Anonymous said...

Just because Ahmad Talib and Johan Jaafar didn't make any effort to defend the PM, meant they are not qualified, or perhaps worse than Rocky?

If someone can assume that RPK only write rubbish (which, perhaps, he is just expressing his points of views), then maybe it is not wrong if someone assumes the same thing when reading what Rocky wrote about the PM.

I'm not into politics that much, but I supposed a newspaper should not be biased?

Cheers

Just because Rocky is pro-Najib does not mean he will be a great editor. Heck he'll be a bad one. Coz journalists should be impartial. NST is not a BN publicity tool. It SHOULD be an independent newspaper

Why are you guys hantaming Pasquale, he or she is just trying to gauge how much Ahmad is liked. Well I think Ahmad can be given the job and not Johan, then Ahmad can take Rocky as GE, I think this is good!

Jamal JB you should once in a while try the kencing setan to open up your fogged brain. Always remember the world does not owe you, if you are a Malay, a fucking thing but the world owes you a chance, so far many Melayu like you have fucked all the chances given to them, as for me if I want to go to hell that will be my choice, you fucking moron! (On the other hand you may not be a Malay writing this but may be a Singaporean agent provocateur pretending to be Malay Muslim out to destroy Muslim Malay harmony, right? I am right!?

Taubatlah org tua,

Just because you consume alcohol openly without feeling any guilt , so now you called other Malay Muslim owns a fogged mind.Wow, an old vulgar drinking advocate . You are as repulsive as RPK ! Talking about religion same time minum air setan.
And I am suddenly a Singaporean agent.Gosh you are senile . Do not drag Najib with your attitude.Ur imagination is really wild.Destroy Muslim harmony ? Look who is talking . It is still my duty to remind you as Muslim that it is wrong to live as a free liberal Muslim and try to advise each other not to the path of hell.
Why do you think the Muslim youth had enough of you all so called enlighten One .
Look at your choice of words...

The world gave a chance to determine to life . I went to school , got myself a degree and ensure now I earn my living in a HALAL manner annd try hard to be a civil Malay and God fearing Muslim.
Thats my choice.

Just leave the New Straits Slimes to die, none of these three can save it...

A.Talib? Like you said... drinking teh tarik in the roadside warung... other snippets, remembrances, reminiscences, bla bla bla

Rocky? All the articles will be "Blogger so-and-so just wrote why this-n-that is bad. Read the article here [hyperlink to some website]". Then letters come pouring in from angry readers yelling at The Editor that they can't access the link by pressing their thumbs on the paper.

Johan Jaaffar? You gotta be kidding. Half the content will be Mastika-type "cerita tahyul" or other ghost stories. Imagine picking up the NST and reading about flying-bomohs-with-eye-lasers on the front page. Of course, if they talk about a toyol making noise in Selangor than thats more believable...

Yalah tu! Der Dezision made by der Prime Minizter alone........mcm cakap dollah bila "dinasihati" oleh Khairy. Buat lawak lah tu!

You are just another 1 of the Melayu-wannabe MAMAK GANG like Mahafiraun that is using UMNO and Malaysia for your own personal enrichment. Musuh org Melayu bukan org luar spt Cina, india mahupun Yahudi, musuhnye api dlm belukar, GENG MAMAK yg memusnahkan dari dlm, berpura2 jd org Melayu!!!!

If you want others to respect you,respect others too.That is a good advise.Vulgarities equals you to no a brainer snob,whats the difference between you and RPK OR even zorro whatever.
Even Najib,my prime minister acknowledge that ' gov knows best policy is over'.Who are you to defy him ? Are you his personal advisor ? Allah helps if you are.

I as an UMNO member is sick and tired to be labelled not open minded etc or even PAS inclined just for not enjoying 'life' as some of you on the top does.For the people here , this is not what majority UMNO behaves , wait till the time comes when we the grassroot able to vote leadership.Gone all the snobs.

That's a serious allegation mate. We have a Dino Pascuale, a respected associate member of the National press Club, who does not blog.

And I don't buy him beer.

I READ A PARTICULARLY POPULAR NEWSPAPER IN MALAYSIA ALMOST EVERYDAY... HAVING LOTS OF ADVERTISEMENT MAKES IT MUCH THICKER THAN NST... BUT I NOTICE SOME DISTURBING FACTS LATELY... THE COLUMNIST ARE SUCH UNSUBSTANCED WRITERS WITH PRIOR AGENDAS THAT IT IS OBVIOUS... THOUGH THE COLUMN THEY WRITE CAN NOT BE CONSIDERED INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM BUT I DISGUSTS ME THAT THE MANAGEMENT OF THE PAPER WOULD ALLOW SUCH RUBBISH... BUT ALSO THE REPORTED NEWS HAVE BEEN SUCH BIASED NEWS... OBVIOUS IN THE PICTURES THEY CHOOSE FOR NEWS RELATING TO MALAY POLITICIAN (USUALLY UNFLATERING)... AND PUTTING NEWS OF THEIR OWN AGENDA CLOSER TO THE FRONT PAGE... SUCH TACTICS IS SO DECEPTIVE AND DESPICABLE...
