How to stop MCA — Sam Peh
JULY 5 — The Star has dropped all its pretence, now that the countdown to elections has started. Fiction is being handed out as news, fiction aimed at putting the opposition in bad light, especially Lim Guan Eng and Khalid Ibrahim, the two high-profile chief ministers.
The Star’s editors talk openly about being a MCA newspaper and are happy to wear their political affiliation on their sleeves. Fair enough. After all, they have ceased being reporters for a long time and are really people only after a pay packet.
But what is our excuse? What is our excuse to keep on feeding Chua Soi Lek, Liow Tiong Lai, Ng Yen Yen and the MCA?
Well, that is what you are doing every time you buy The Star. The newspaper group is MCA’s biggest contributor. So in reality, every time you pick up The Star, you are helping MCA.
Every time you pick up The Star, you are encouraging the editors and reporters to continue mutilating the profession that once was honourable.
In conclusion, if we are repulsed by MCA, there cannot be any compromise. You cannot buy The Star any longer. It goes against common sense and logic and principles to fund a group that you want wiped out.
