Sarawak Report web site has something to prove its popularity: a clone web site has started here to praise Taib here, but failed to answer the charges of land grabs, corruption and property accumulations by Taib during his 30-year rule. Sarawak Report don’t bother with the clone and go ahead to start a new page using Wikileaks framework to help document the hundreds or thousands of land grabs that have taken place in Sarawak.
The cloning attacks on Sarawak Report is to be expected as the Sarawak BN component parties have recently got together to set up their cyber trooper units -led by PBB Youth chief and assisted by counterparts of the other component parties. By complimenting Taib it will recruit from the same pool of writers from the mainstream media-and sing the same tune as the mainstream media. Wonder if this can count as a dash of originality that attract readers for them-let alone to compete withe the original Sarawak Report?
Anyway it was implied by various reports that many bloggers are going in to attract handsome payouts to the BN cyber troopers, said to run over Rm5000.00/month. Since the BN war chest is believed to be bottomless the pay-out is `nothing’ to the parties.
