You are a hero when they need you, you are a scum of the Earth, if they don't need you. They treat journalists like thrash, they beat them to the pulp and now they whisper in your ears and say "I am sorry".
Hat off to the journalists in the vernacular newspapers. The Chinese newspapers today stood their ground and made the voice heard - they want Press Freedom.
The message to the establishment cannot be louder and clearer. Treat journalists with respect. Treat them with honour.
While these journalists have guts, such an honour cannot be accorded to their friends in Utusan Malaysia. They have no balls. They just ape.
