Balanced or Biased ? Am Just Being Petty.

Hantu Laut

I must confess I use Malaysian Insider as my saucepan much more than any other source of local news not because of its balanced reporting but more for its left wing incline and frequent updating.

Read the article below, balanced or biased ?

Penang gives RM25,000 to landslide victims

GEORGE TOWN, May 22 – Penang will give RM25,000 to the 25 victims of the Hulu Langat landslide yesterday which claimed 16 lives.

Nine others survived the landslide at the Rumah Anak-anak Yatim dan Anak-anak Hidayah Madrasah Al-Taqwa at Batu 14, Hulu Langat in Selangor.

“Although it is not a lot, it is moral support for the families of those who died and survived so that they can persevere through this tragedy,” Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said in a statement.

The Selangor government has also given RM1,000 to each of the families of the victims and is looking to offer them other help.

The federal government will give RM10,000 to each of the families of the victims.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak is also cutting short his United States visit to meet the victims this Tuesday.

See! Who got the headline?

The one who gave the most didn't get the limelight.

The MSM or the Internet's news portal. Aren't they all the same?

Am I just being petty?

We should not make fun of this avoidable (man made) tragedy. Someboby have to to be accountable...and those responsible should be severely punish to deter others.
