Khairy Jamaluddin pursuing a proxy war lost his political Credibility

Khairy Jamaluddin, 38, is the current Umno Youth chief. A party member has suggested 40 as the age limit for the Umno Youth chief to attract new blood. – The Malaysian Insider file pic, August 17, 2014.

Frankly, we live in such ‘interesting’ times that it is virtually impossible to locate a commentator without an agenda. An agenda-less commentator is an endangered species. Which brings us back to the luckless citizen looking for views and positions he can put his faith in. Who does he turn to if all public affairs gurus are openly partial?
I will not be revealing any secrets when i say the credibility of the pundit is at an all-time low, if you exclude the Emergency. The prevailing atmosphere of suspicion and conspiracy theories is so toxic we should not be surprised by the strong inclination towards negativity in the people. As a result, even while he is perusing a 900-word column, the reader is wondering, “Why is this lying bugger lying to me?”Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin has dismissed the initial speculation that PAS has conceded over the Selangor menteri besar crisis.He was referring to the PAS central committee’s decision this morning.
Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin Stop fishing in troubled waters! In politics, it can happen to you your government is under siege, A woman can be menteri besar but not Wan Azizah, says Khairy,PAS deftly dodges frightful dilemmawas a decision that showcased politics as the art of the possible.By backing  PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail
ability to fight a conventional war and was hence engaging in a proxy war by aiding and abetting Abdul Hadi Awang, does nothing to move the needle forward on even main actor Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim adopt to resolve the various irreconciliables it faces Before this Selangor MB episode,Khairy Jamaluddin was dead against PR and all its component parties. But now, he is suddenly a professed admirer of PAS? Words can’t hide his disappointment
He was referring to the PAS central committee’s decision this morning, where the Islamic party backed PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and her deputy Azmin Ali for the post.. Let’s see whether Azmin declines and whether PKR includes Azmin’s name as well when recommending to PR. If Azmin is loyal to Anwar, he will decline. PKR and DAP will propose only Wan Azizah to PR. The Sultan can’t wag his tail. The criterion is confidence of the majority.

 

The difficulty for citizens is they lack the tools and instruments to make an informed judgment.So, what options does the voter have? He can speak with friends. He can go online. He can tap a person who has a reputation for being knowledgeable in such matters. But most, i suspect, will rely on the media pundit in the shape of the opinion page writer. I would go so far as to say that political commentary is the main resource available to most people to help them make up their mind.

So far so good. Unfortunately, at this precise moment a problem arises. Recently, i was talking to an old colleague, and i told him i had read an article by Mr X which i liked. “Oh, he is not to be believed,” he replied. “He gets all his information from…” And he then mentioned the name of a minister in the present government. My interlocutor added that the gentleman we were talking about had an axe to grind, an `agenda`. Accordingly, what he wrote needed to be taken with a shovel of salt.

KJ, tell us something that we don’t already know please. Anyone of the good commenters here could have just said the same better than you…and in fact much earlier on too. Now that the game is deemed OVER, your dig at Anwar does not stick but instead PAS got it full force in their ribs.One wonders why BN fears the appointment of Kak Wan as MB. Mainstream media, redflecting BN sentiments, seem to be pushing the view that Azmin is the preffered alternate. The fear of Kan Wan becoming MB seems to be real concern for BN. Perhaps, evidence left behind may need a leader more forgiving. Azmin’s past UMNO roots may be a better assurance of a more lenient rectification. Hopefully Kan Wan will take the post with Azmin’s support or the latter might become a pawn to BN’s game, like Khalid.They knew they lost now because finally Khalid Ibrahim has been check-mated. There goes the Kidex project, amongst others.
By objectivity i am not suggesting you abandon your prejudices and preferences, but keep them in check. And, sometimes, restrain them if the message on the wall is too clear.detesters could not ignore the hawa blowing in his favour across the country in 2013. Whatever your predilections, you had to take note of the wind whose intensity was growing by the week.can identify one quality the reader is looking for in an opinion column it is ‘trust’. The reader is aware from where the columnist is coming from, what his leanings are. Despite that, he needs to ‘trust’ the writer. He must feel confident the column, at the least, will acknowledge reality, not deny reality. In my 40-odd years of editorship the highest compliment paid to me, among zillions of abuses, went, don’t like your opinions but don’t think you will deliberately mislead you
why don’t you just concentrate on your post as an irrelevant sports Minister and make sure Malaysia does not continue become a laughing stock in any sports. Please be reminded that even our so called tiny neighbour S’pore has usurped Malaysia in the Commonwealth games final Medals tally and all but one of Malaysia’s six gold medals were won by non-Malays. You should try to get your kampong mentality Malay athletes to follow in the footsteps of our world famous Nicol David and Lee Chong Wei in working and toiling for their success to bring glory to our beloved Malaysia. Both our football and hockey teams are now nothing more then a joke. Just look at who are playing and it’s not surpised to see why. KJ, you are nothing more then a proven Ah Jib ball carrier destined for the scrap heap after Pakatan take over in GE14. If you have nothing intelligent to say, why don’t you just go home and play guli guli with your former sleepy ex-PM Pak Lah.You are a joke!The challenge for those privileged to contribute to the ‘heart of a newspaper’, then, becomes even more daunting. In a society where columnists and editors play favourites, the victim is the reader. Who looks after his interest? Media people day in and day out affirm their commitment to the reader, and the reader alone. Alas, the commitment doesn’t stand up to scrutiny.

In short, truth and readability are essential for a column. Remember you don’t want to tell the truth in a way which puts your reader to sleep.
Is there any solution for the present depressing situation? I cannot easily think of one. However, if a solution exists it lies in the hands of the reader. He must reject those columnists (and the papers they write for) that flagrantly violate the basic canons of trust. The reader will be doing the media a favour and also the pundit, who must know he has been caught out.
