  • The problem with Mahathir is relying on discredited and self appointed advisers like AKJ to fight the New Media war.

    In their old-media mould late in their 70s and 90s, they failed to see that the younger gen people do not want ex Umno goons in the new coalition.

    The young gen may not know the history of AKJ, but the former NST boss has been minted with unmistakeable old Umno DNA one has to question if he really can be trusted at all.
