The date was 9th March 07, and the place was Sin Chew, Early Evening edition pp 5… Malaysian Tourism Minister had been quoted as saying “…all bloggers are liars…” and “…8,000 of 10,000 unemployed bloggers are women…”
Bloggers, especially women, retaliated and salvos were fired from all directions toward the minister.
Monday 12th March 07, the Minister had been quoted in The Associated Press as saying “I don’t have anything to say.”
