PETALING JAYA, Jan 11 (Sin Chew Daily) — The Editors’ Association (Chinese Medium) of Malaysia president Kuik Cheng Kang is of the view that Anti-Corruption Advisory Board chairman Tan Sri Abu Zahar Ujang should not underestimate the readers’ ability in reading news and assessing news accuracy.
“Please do not look down on the readers and blame the media instead of yourself, for committing the error. This is an irresponsible act.”
Kuik is of the view that Abu Zahar should be accountable for his words and behavior.
He should acknowledge and apologize for his wrong choice of words.
Kuik stresses that the media should not be made a scapegoat.
“The Editors’ Association (Chinese Medium) of Malaysia urges Abu Zahar to apologize to the media nationwide,” he said.
