According to a reliable source:
It seems Mr. Zheng Dingxian has copied a post from Jed Yoong and translated it into an article for SinChew Here: http://www.sinchew-i.com/commentary/node/4865 (Before and after the polls).
The problem is: he did not give Jed Yoong any credit for the article, which you can find here: Malaysia Boleh Minister in Heaven.
Jed did say she got it from an email. Is it so difficult (for Sin Chew/newspapers) just to say: source blogger so and so…? OR…from website so and so…?
Tsk.Tsk. It seems the mainstream newspapers are now becoming copy cats, copying bloggers and pretending the stories are theirs. First, it was the star with the 22 recalcitrant MPs story but the paper rectified it later and provided a link to their story online. Still, they did not say they took the story from I AM MALAYSIAN!
It seems letters have already been sent to Sin Chew’s Editor (and all Chinese dailies) regarding the copy cat.
So, Sin Chew, will you apologise and do the necessary? Or will you say, the ‘joke’ had been making its round, so its not from Jed’s blog (quoting commentator Bob K)?
