Sin Chew says it did not misquote Adnan’s quote on bloggers


Susan Loone has managed to confirm with the Sin Chew reporter covering Tourism Minister Tengku Adnan when he was quoted saying that all bloggers are liars that the paper did not lie when quoting him.If Sin Chew did not lie, then Tengku Adnan must have lied, hich means that his accusation that the Indonesian blogger lied may have been a lie.

This is all getting rather complicated. Unspun needs some Bodrex…

Apparently, Long had read Merdeka Review and they quoted me saying something to the effect that Sin Chew had lied. But I remember, I was simply asking the question. “Sin Chew, did you lie?
