Hata Wahari has been with Utusan Malaysia for 16 years! Enam Belas Tahun!
Hata Wahari alleging that Hata
Wahari had brought the newspaper into disrepute and insulted its management.
How anybody could drag Utusan Malaysia deeper into the abyss it is already in is debatable, but you cannot fault the management of Utusan Malaysia for
not trying! Committing Hari Kiri seems to be about the only noble thing left for Utusan Malaysia’s management to do given their inability to do anything else that could advance the noble profession of journalism – especially their own!
In March 2011 Nurrul made the following announcement:
“It’s an organ for the masses. We’re really in dire need for a mainstream media that will report as objectively, professional and ethical as possible,” she added.
You chose to be with DAP when you know that Nurrul have need of your experience and wisdom as a senior journalist to advise and guide her in her aspirations to change the political mire we are now in?
No, Hata I am not faulting you for your choice of DAP because I am sure that it was a decision not made hastily but made after much thought and deliberation. But I still want to know why?
What is it that is within PKR now that caused you to abandon Nurrul?
Did what was done by those within PKR to Zaid Ibrahim continue to haunt you as it haunts all of us?
Are the divisions within PKR now wider despite or in spite of Anwar’s acquittal?
Are you another rat leaving a sinking ship? …and Mr Hata I use the term ‘rat’ very loosely with reference to you. If I could I would use the term ‘an experience and respected journo’ but when you talk about PKR and sinking ships…’rat’ seems to be more appropriate! Maaf brother!
““to return to their true function as deliverers of objective information to the public, and not be tools of propaganda for the government, or any political party or individual, for their personal gain.”
and your words today about DAP:
““DAP is the party that is slandered the most by mainstream media, particularly Utusan. I need to defend DAP that it is not a racist party but a party that supports Malaysia as a whole”.
Tell me Hata Wahari why you think PKR is unable to do the same? From what you now do, are you inferring that PKR is a tool to promote the vested interest of individuals? That it is a racist party and that PKR does not support Malaysia as a whole?
If it is then would it not be more reason for you to be with PKR and make those changes from within then to be with DAP?
It is not for me to try and fathom what lies within the depths of your mind but this I know. We who are for ABU are the better to have you within our ranks. Go with DAP and do what you must but those in PKR must ask themselves this.
Why does PKR, when they already have Hata Wahari within their midst, as they had Zaid Ibrahim within their midst….why does PKR let these people go? Or more to the point why did PKR do to cause them to leave PKR?
