Source: Utusan’s fourth quarter 2008 unaudited results as submitted to Bursa

Utusan workers are demanding better terms from their employer. But the firm’s revenue shows a drop from the previous period.

Fourth quarter unaudited profits dropped substantially as “other operating expenses” soared to RM17.3 million from RM1.9 million for the same period in 2007.

Putusan Malaysia deserves to sink quietly & ignominiously into the stinking cesspool in which it has wallowed since the evil Mahathir era.

Utusan today is a far cry from the Utusan of the pre-Independence and early years of nationhood. UMNO destroyed Utusan and the hardworking independent-minded Utusan journos like Said Zahari etc. back in 1961. In those days the journos had brains and had principles.

All MSM in Bolehland are controlled by who?

So to all those who are the employees of MSM, you people don’t have to worry.

This is the most secure sector and its business will not be influenced by the economy slow down, unlike the other SMIs.

Fat bonuses and salary increments will still be paid in 2009, I guess.

To other people in the streets, sorrylah, please take care.

The Malays I know, most of them highly educated, besides TheSun, prefer also Harian Metro. They prefer the content there.

This media deserved it. A suit has already been filed against this race biased media. The rakyat hope that they will not only pay $$$$$ compensation but also requst to close down after the court case.
But, alas, in Bolehland, with UMNO behind it, anything is possible.
