Quotes and Misquotes
The Star Forum yesterday had a full crowd. But I have to say, another additional negative about the newspaper was its inability to quote people correctly. This is what I was quoted as saying:
“The forum was fair as it allowed the people to present all their views. We have a good panel here and it is necessary to hear the views from across the spectrum.
“This is the time when Malaysians need to sit down and reflect upon a very significant turning point of our country. We need to come together to decide what we want for the future.
“The Star has provided a good model to be followed by the state governments and the cabinet to make a civil society.”
How can “state governments and the cabinet” MAKE civil society??
I said “state governments and the cabinet to meet civil society.”
Come on, Star! Honestly… I don’t know whether to laugh or to cry. I think I should just laugh, along with Comedy Court’s excellent renditions of recent songs. 🙂
