I was going to write a long rant, but after watching Malaysian Idol last night (a great episode, by the way), I’ve calmed down quite a bit now.

Anyway, other (better) bloggers have already blogged about this, so I’ll just direct you to their sites:

Idlan Zakaria’s Organised Chaos:
Did a Star article plagiarise Sashi’s post?

Jeff Ooi’s Screenshots:
Who is B Sanjeevan’s “Bearded Gill”?

  1. to quote jeff ooi: “What The Star and B. Sanjeevan had done, is a sincerest form of flattery mainstream journos silently and privately have for bloggers.”

    tis a proud and exciting moment in local blogging history!

  2. Tsk tsk. Talk about desperation or is it just plain laziness? I suppose this is why I barely read The Star anymore.

    And these people are suppose to know about plagiarism and what not. Cheh.

  3. Aiyer, first sixthseal gets an unfavourable mention, now you get plagiarised. I echo Sara – is there no decency in this world?

  4. Wow…I have to say, the likelihood of having someone quote verbatim what someone else wrote in an article is far too small to be almost impossible. It’s not just plagiarism at work here, but also a reporter who falsely attributes statements said by someone.

    Only Sashi – you calmed down AFTER MI? Wow…I’ll try to catch the repeat tomorrow then…

    In the meantime, B-R-E-A-T-H-E…:-)

  5. Whoa. that’s outrageous! My heart goes out to you, Sash… there’s nothing worse than someone stealing your words and claiming them as their own. Oh wait… there is something worse – someone stealing your words, claiming them as their own and it appearing in the bloody newspapers!

    Is there no decency left in this world?

  6. Go on! Rant! Rant! Rant!

    If you want, we can go to Menara Star and play football in their lobby until they respond to this. 🙂

  7. Whoa, dude. As a sign of protest, I’ll only read the Star in the toilet for the next one week! 🙂

    And yeah, Malaysian Idol was great last night. Especially that angry guy who looked like he was gonna beat up the judges. 😆

  8. Good enough to be plagiarised by some two bit reporter? Wah… now you have edged up a few notches in my must-read bloggers list. You are the man!
