This post will take a snipe at the news reports of Datuk Mukhriz Tun Mahathir, the newly appointed Deputy Minister of International Trade and Industry.
I am calling upon all bloggers, the mainstream media as well as alternative media to clarify the accuracy of their reports.
This is error of the highest level especially in the mainstream media.
Initial reports in The Star showed that Datuk Mukhriz graduated from a Bulgarian University. Subsequently, this was followed by quoted reports in The Nut Graph as well as The Edge Malaysia.
Most of the mainstream media have posted corrections. The Edge Malaysia has yet to do so at time of publish of this post although I understand they were quoted from BERNAMA (corrected).
Dato' Mukhriz Mahathir studied Business Administration at Sophia University in Tokyo, Japan and graduated with a degree in Marketing from Boston University, Massachussetts, U.S.A. in 1989.
I hope errors like this do not get mixed up and clarifications are done beforehand. Accuracies and professionalism are important elements especially among the mainstream media.
For more accurate details of Datuk Mukhriz, please refer to Perdana Global Peace - Mukhriz Mahathir.
