Japan Tsunami 2011

The Japan EarthQuake and Tsunami brought devastation to untold numbers of lives in Japan. It also triggered some of the most boneheaded (is bone head one or two words?) decision in media publishing,advertising AND POLITICS.

First off, malaysian publishing group Berita Harian published a tasteless cartoon below : Yes it was really awful and yes, they did issued an apology after that but it wasnt enought to satisfy majority of malaysians (myself included) : FULL STORY ON CNN HERE

Then, came this funny email from mediacorp in singapore :

The e-mail, from Corinne Chong vice-president of marketing communications at MediaCorp, reads as follows, “A massive 8.8-magnitude earthquake shook Japan in the early afternoon today, unleashing a powerful tsunami that wrecked havoc along the streets of coastal towns. Book your spots in the Weekday Evening News Bundle as the channel brings viewers comprehensive coverage reports on the disaster with extended versions of news bulletins tonight. Call our sales representatives now.

Wow! capitalizing on human tragedy! why didnt the americans think of that during 9/11 ??

Lastly, back to malaysia – the current PM’s wife statement on why is Japan facing the consequences of the earthquake and tsunami. I wont comment anymore so check out the full story here (with video embedded!)

  1. From what I can see, I cannot believe how can some people be so insensitive when Japan is having its misfortune. The Berita Harian cartoon is distasteful really.
