the Star reports that
"A police spokesman said about 30,000 Barisan Nasional supporters and 15,000 PAS supporters had gathered to begin their march to the nomination centre."
at first, Lulu was like, wah... where did BN get 30,000 "supporters" from?
Then Lulu remembered.
aiyah... this is the MSM
remember the sex party that they and the other MSMs all got so journo-horny reporting earlier in the week?
in case you forgot, let lulu refresh your memory
Thursday January 1, 2009 MYT 5:11:00 PM - Police arrested a female newscaster of a private television station and 25 others who took part in a sex party at a hotel room in Jalan P. Ramlee on Thursday. During the raid, three couples were on the bed while the rest were entertaining themselves and believed to have been intoxicated, she said
Friday January 2, 2009 A noted female newscaster and an actress were among 26 people caught in a sex party at a hotel in Jalan P. Ramlee here early yesterday morning. Later, along with some other acquaintances, they proceeded to the four-star hotel to attend the sexual escapade. “There were also three couples lying on beds, but they were clothed,” added the sources. It was also through the online social network that the alleged sex party was organised.
Friday January 2, 2009 MYT 3:49:00 PM Police will not pursue sex charges against the 26 people arrested during an alleged sex party on Thursday morning but the case will be referred to the narcotics department for further action. When police stormed the 11th floor of the four-star hotel room in Jalan P. Ramlee here at 3.30am, all the people were still clothed and the few condoms that were found had not been used.
Saturday January 3, 2009 City CID chief Senior Asst Comm (II) Ku Chin Wah said police would investigate the case for drugs as no sexual acts were committed at the purported sex party. All were intoxicated but still clothed when arrested, he said.
30,000 BN supporters in KT?
ahem... Lulu thinks not.
Harakah reports Jumlah penyokong Pakatan Rakyat setakat ini dianggarkan melebihi 40,000 orang manakala penyokong BN pula kurang dari 10,000 orang.
Malaysiakini reports The media reported that the police estimated 20,000 PAS supporters and 4,000 BN supporters had gathered for the nomination
NST didnt put a number
Even the lowlife Utusan reported 10,000 BN supporters but did not mention how many there were for PAS.
shame on The Star for such bad reporting.
Shameful, but not surprising
