Insidious Insider - My Reply to Malaysian Insider (Again) - KJ

The Malaysian Insider chose to again attack me personally with little regard to journalistic standards. Two separate articles, one a report and the other an editorial - whose author conveniently remains anonymous - epitomise the failings of the news portal to provide "balanced and serious reporting" as it spells out on its website.
