F***ign Correspondent Club of Thailand and Bloody Loone

An earlier Malaysiakini report had the "Ex-IGP denies claim of press meet on Altantuya".

No surprises, in running dog style in a later Malaysiakini report, Susan Loone, Altantuya/PM Najib link perpetuator extraordinaire journalist, makes no bones to twist a non-event by emphasising Tan Sri Musa, "was supposed to reveal new details about the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder" and other embelishments to satisfy her bloodthirsty crave.

How is anyone "supposed to reveal" anything that has been denied in the first place, making the purported press meeting fallacious, if one were to accept Susan Loone and Malaysiakini's spin?

The FCCT summary of events in October reads,

11am, Monday October 22, 2012
"CANCELLED: New revelations in the Altantuya murder case
Press conference by Musa Hassan, former national police chief of Malaysia."

Going to that link it carries a disclaimer,

"This is not an FCCT-sponsored event. Responsibility for program content is solely that of the event organizer."

Does it make sense for FCCT to state they are not sponsors when the event is cancelled or non-existent? Would not the disclaimer in the earlier announcement apply?

And where is the initial announcement at the FCCT website, also reported by Malaysiakini, of a press conference announcement posted last Saturday, to reveal new details about the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder?



Is this the FCCT announcement?

I couldn't care two hoots who the organisers are.

The misleading manner at summary of events in October, as published by FCCT above, shows this "club" to be mischievous, irresponsible and devoid of jounalistic principles and the spin by Susan Loone is similarly despicable.

F***ing scum, all of them!

Update 27 October : Screenshot published and words blocked so as to NOT be a perpetuator in a deliberate ruse. Read commentaries with commenter IT.Sheiss

Freddie,

I think you are being a bit unfair with the FCCT.

Here is another instance of where they included a disclaimer.

"2012 Laguna Phuket Triathlon & Ironman 70.3 Laguna Phuket
Press Conference & Lunch"

"11am, Thursday October 25, 2012
Free"

"This is not an FCCT-sponsored event. Responsibility for program content is solely that of the event organizer"

http://fccthai.com/items/959.html

This is a press conference about a sporting event which was cancelled.

The FCCT obviously lets third parties book its facilities for events and for whatever reason, possibly legal, and it states a disclaimer when the event is organised by a third party.

The fact that the listing of the alleged talk by Musa Hassan is no longer there is quite possibly because it was cancelled and no point keeping it there long.

You should have made a screen capture of the cancellation notice when it was there.

Yes, opposition politicians and NGOs have spoken at the FCCT but that does not mean that it supports their objectives or agendas, any more than a hotel which rents out its meeting facilities does.

While I won't put it past the FCCT to be influenced by foreign government interests and NGOs, looking at the history of this club founded in 1956, it looks like it's very much a club founded mostly by western journalists who need place to meet, socialise and chill out.

It's international affiliations look pretty innocent and non-political to me, though The Press Club in Malaysia is not one of them.

If it had affiliation with NGOs like SEAPA, Reporters Without Borders or the Media Development Loan Fund, then I would be concerned.

Of course, it's individual members, committee members or even administrative staff could also be affiliated with these organisations but on a personal basis.

So until proven otherwise, don't blame the owner of the facilities being rented out.

IT.Sheiss,

"The fact that the listing of the alleged talk by Musa Hassan is no longer there is quite possibly because it was cancelled and no point keeping it there long."

It is for this very fact, that it was cancelled, could not the notice of cancellation been - "CANCELLED:
Press conference by Musa Hassan, former national police chief of Malaysia."

That would have been more appropriate under the circumstances.

I stand by my article.

As for a screenshot, as I said, I don't give a damn when an issue can be clearly seen to be nasty business.

Thank you for the comment.

By the way, your SEAPA,RW/OB and MDLF is duly noted and agreed absolutely.

Best regards
Freddie

Hi Freddie,

You wrote"-

"And where is the initial announcement at the FCCT website, also reported by Malaysiakini, of a press conference announcement posted last Saturday, to reveal new details about the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder?"

If there was no initial announcement and all of a sudden the "CANCELLED" announcement popped up on the FCCT website, then I'd agree that something is fishy about it.

How closely were you monitoring the FCCT's summary of events in October before you saw the "CANCELLED" notice of the said event.

The FCCT removes notices of past events soon after the date has passed, which is why a screen cap would have served as convincing evidence.

Your blog is dated 22 Oct, a Monday, so "last Saturday" would have been 20 October. Were you monitoring the FCCT website regularly before 22 Oct?

While the FCCT may have had innocent beginnings and objectives, knowing how Thailand is infested with NGOs of the wrong kind and perhaps lots of CIA spies, I would not be at all surprised that individual members and even staff at the FCCT are members of these NGOs or even working for the CIA, and would be willing to do a "favour" for fellow NGOs over here.

If it can be shown that there never was an initial notice and all of a sudden a "CANCELED" notice, then you have a strong case that Musa Hassan was not going to speak there.

IT.Sheiss,

IT.S: "If there was no initial announcement and all of a sudden the "CANCELLED" announcement popped up on the FCCT website, then I'd agree that something is fishy about it."

I did not say there was no initial announcement.

I was not monitoring the summary of events before 22nd or anytime in October. If one had seen the summary of events at the FCCT website the same day I made my post 22 Oct, that brief statement and timestamped will show - 11am, Monday October 22, 2012 "CANCELLED: New revelations............. Press conference by Musa Hassan, former national police chief of Malaysia."

IT.S: "The FCCT removes notices of past events soon after the date has passed, which is why a screen cap would have served as convincing evidence.

I venture you know more about the FCCT website than me. Your comments to my post is 4 days after the FCCT summary posting, so you would not have seen the FCCT announcement. However, that announcement of a press conference, if you follow the link to the "earlier" Malaysiakini report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/212270#20121020160100 quote, "Musa, according to the press conference announcement posted on the website 'last' Saturday, was supposed to reveal new details about ...........murder." AND the screenshot is there. That earlier report had Tan sri Musa already denying and that is what I posted. IF (with emphasis), one were to be even more suspicious, this earlier report is timestamped 12:01AM Oct 21, 2012 or Saturday night. Susan Loone's report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/212323 came out on Monday morning 8:54AM Oct 22, 2012. Of course the contents of both reports corroborate within the timeline the Malaysiakini reports are published. Super efficient! Embellishments and all. Follow this link http://fccthai.com/items/954.html a past event Oct 17 not FCCT-sponsored event is there. Change the html from 954.html onwards you cannot find that particular announcement. Ask yourself why. Anyway, like I said I don't give a damn because I see it as nothing more that perpetuating a despicable lie.

Appreciate your comments. Hope mine clarifies yours.

Best regards
Freddie

IT.Sheiss,

At the earlier malaysiakini report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/212270#20121020160100 the reporter wrote "According to the notice [view the screencapture at the end of this report], available on the FCCT website, the press conference was to be held at noon, Malaysian time, on Oct 22." The words "FCCT website" are linked by Malaysiakini which leads to the cancellation announcement http://fccthai.com/items/966.html. In the context of what the reporter wrote, does it make sense? It should link to the original FCCT announcement of the press conference the screenshot captures in the report, shouldn't it?

The only conclusion that can be arrived is, Malaysiakini knew the press conference was fake and kept the screenshot with it's incriminatory imputations, knowing the original announcement FCCT would not be found later.

I have published the screenshot for your perusal.

Best regards
Freddie
