In short, they lied. Lied in broad daylight!
I was disappointed when Rocky didnt turn up for the RTM2 Talk Show on Press Freedom aired yesterday (May 15). In his blog, he said it was postponed, but truth is, it went on air (Full report at Jeff Ooi’s).
I thought Rocky had been bundled away to ‘you know where’ by ‘you know who’, for his latest report on the Prime Minister’s health condition in Langkawi. Or, for some other so called mis-appropriate behavior.
So, I shot him an email and ask: “Rocky, where are you? Why did’nt you turn up for the talk show? It’s just inquisitive me, asking again”.
Within minutes, Rocky replied:
“I was told two days ago that they were postponing the program! I’ve been had. Spoke to the producer this morning, he said they were told last week to drop me because of my court case. They should have said so. Why tell me on the eve of the programme that it was postponed? Beats me!”
Goodness, how unprofessional they were. Why can’t they simply tell Rocky straight in his face? Afraid that if Rocky makes a big fuss in his blog, no one will watch the programme is it?
And just because Rocky has an impending court case, he can’t be aired on TV programmes. Is this a policy with news agencies now?
Like Rocky says: BEATS ME!
