Information Minister Zainuddin Maidin's Twisted Logic

From comments coming from a Cabinet Minister in charge of Information, it appears there still exist Ministers in this UMNO-led Government who take Malaysians for stupid brainless fools.

Mr. Minister Zainuddin Maidin,

It is better to be seen as a fool by keeping your mouth shut, than be seen as a bigger fool by opening your mouth.

From Bernama report:

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Zainuddin Maidin asked the Bar Council members to call for a commission to be set up to investigate the unprofessional conduct of their leaders.

Zainuddin Maidin said the council should act PROFESSIONALLY to be respected and should NOT allow itself to be used by certain individuals for their own political interest.

He said the Bar Council was NO longer professional by pressuring the government to set a Royal Commission of Inquiry to investigate the unauthenticated video clip of a telephone conversation of a senior lawyer purportedly brokering the appointment of judges in 2002.

He said the Bar Council should be THANKFUL for the government's effort and should not continue to pressure for the setting up of a Royal Commission of Inquiry.

He also hit out at certain media for giving wide coverage on the video clip issue whereas they should act based on facts and professionally.

    "...Behold the greatest asset in this whole wide world is INFORMATION. I should know...I studied it. I find it really amusing...really.

    Now he expects that some lawyers to listen to him? After what he does as to name calling whoever that leaves a foul after taste after his dinner he should know better that what a buffoon he has made himself be with the title of Minister.

    Goodness me, I wonder does he know the meaning of information?

    Well let me briefly explain it here....

    Information is an amount of collected data that has been correlated to bring specific meaning and use to the audience that asks and require of it. Thus this makes information not entirely useful all the time to everyone.

    Now this is the term for useful information...Useful information is information that is complied, developed, packaged and delivered to the right people at the right time for it's precise purpose or function. If it does not meet this criteria then it is still information but more precisely termed as Useless Information.

    Now, for Mr Minister of Information to tell the Malaysian BAR that they have acted unprofessionally by asking the set up of a Royal Commission is really useless information.

    Why? Because he stated that the Malaysian BAR should act professionally to be respected but who would want to listen to his say when he himself resorted to name calling a couple of months back.

    In the light of his previous action and statement, his say is totally un-authoritative because he himself sang off key and portrayed a minister that is immature and reckless...."
