Biased reporting or outright yellow journalism? The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) faces this question as it has finally admitted evidence of Saudi funding received by Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
The Star reported today that WSJ admitted funding coming as a “donation” from the Saudi Royal family for Najib Tun Razak after consistent denial of it all. The journal heretofore based its denial on unnamed and anonymous sources, which might not even exist!
How deep-rooted is the corruption and irregularity in mainstream media? WSJ’s admission to the fact it had denied and willfully defending its denial is most likely just the tip of the ice berg. A critical observer should actually check WSJ’s own accounts to see if it got any funding from Saudi or Malaysian government sources or other connections during the time it denied the Saudi sponsorship.
At the same time, how many other politicians around the world are funded by the Saudis and other terror sponsors to risk their ignorant citizens that elect them and continue to believe them?
