HARDWORKING MAHATHIR ALWAYS GAVE THE BEST COPY, PAK LAH AKA SLEEPING BEAUTY WAS WASTING TIME, WHILE NAJIB JUST TOLD LIES & MORE LIES

For journalists during my time, Tun Dr Mahathir is one we termed as one who will always give ‘good copies’. It means those who cover him will almost always end up with at least a page lead.

(Happy 92nd birthday to Tun by the way).

When I covered his successor, Tun Abdullah, half of the time I had difficulty in starting to write the stories. At times, I thought even Abdullah himself did not understand what he was talking about.

And covering Najib, well I had to lie a lot and I didn’t like that. So I left the profession.
