Wall Street Journal like a ‘beauty queen with rashes’, says BN MP

The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) cannot be trusted as it sensationalises its reports to gain more readers, a Barisan Nasional MP said today, likening the business newspaper to a "beauty queen with rashes". Bagan Serai MP Dr Noor Azmi Ghazali said WSJ's gloomy reports on 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) and the state of the Malaysian economy flew in the face of the high credit ranking Malaysia received from ratings agencies. "Are we going to trust ratings agencies or WSJ? WSJ sensationalises the situation so that more people read its newspaper," he told the Dewan Rakyat when debating the Agong's opening address. "WSJ is like a beauty queen. A beauty queen who is beautiful, dresses up beautifully, everything is beautiful. But when you look under her clothes, she has rashes." The US-based newspaper was the first to report on the RM2.6 billion funds channelled into Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak's personal bank accounts in July last year. It has continued to report exposes on alleged wrongdoing by 1MDB with implications on Najib. – March 10, 2016. MORE TO COME]]>
