What Did Ming Hua News Do? (Part 3/5)

9. He Stole Photos From Another Website!

Ming Hua News’ streak of ill-advised moves did not end with his demand for an apology from MSI. In that same article, he stole two of the photos from Hitech Century. This was after he was caught plagiarising less than a week earlier. #facepalm

Tech Journalists Should NEVER Do What Ming Hua News Just Did

Pro Tip #13 : If you need to borrow someone’s photos for an article, ask them for permission. At least credit them for the photos.

Pro Tip #14 : Most companies will also provide official photos that you can edit and use without attribution. Use them!

10. And Then Picked Another Fight…

If that’s not enough, the Ming Hua News blogger picked another fight, this time with Pokde, an established Malaysian tech website. He targeted Mubashar Aftab of Pokde, calling him “fat” and advising him to “go on a diet“.

我可以告诉你的是,我没在怕
Let me tell you this, I’m not afraid.

就因为一个玩笑就耿耿于怀。
It’s just a joke, but you overreacted.

还真像想不到Pokde.net的作者可以有那么多的支持者。
I cannot image that the Pokde.net boss has so many supporters.

真是小看你了,
I really underestimated you.

人肥没有关系,只要有心减。
It’s okay to be fat, as long as you have the desire to go on a diet.

相信我的墙也是有很多媒体界的朋友,
I believe my site has many media friends as well.

你可以一起合作打倒我这个小媒体,
You guys can gang up on us small media.

但是就算政府打压,
But even if the authorities come down on me,

我是媒体的一天,
As long as I’m a member of the media,

我就不会放弃。
I won’t give up.

谢谢鼓励我,支持我,
Thank you to all who encourage me, support me,

试图打倒我的每一位。
Even the ones who try to take me down.

我都很爱你们。
I love you all.

谢谢你们一直以来的关注。
Thank you for the attention.

我不会停火。你尽管去告我,我会继续上诉。
I won’t stop firing. Sue me. I will continue to complain.

Pro Tip #15 : NEVER pick a fight with other members of the media. It’s one thing to confront a bully or stand up for your rights, it’s quite another thing to START a public fight with derogatory comments for no good reason.

11. Before Plagiarising Another Site

After we shared this article with him, and he promised to read and learn from it, he plagiarised another Malaysian tech website. This time, he copied Vtechgraphy‘s post on the Huawei Mate 10… literally word for word!

Pro Tip #16 : The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results. STOP PLAGIARISING after you have been caught plagiarising!!!
