World Malaysia gets ‘D’, South Korea ‘A-’ in handling of tragedies, says Bloomberg columnist

Putrajaya was once again slammed by a Bloomberg columnist who compared Malaysia's handling of the MH370 saga with South Korea's response to the recent Sewol ferry tragedy.

In a scathing attack, columnist William Pesek said he would give top marks to South Korea for their handling of the ferry tragedy but found Malaysia sorely lacking in handling the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

He said the incidents could be described as tests for the two governments, if not of Malaysian and South Korean societies.

"The grades so far? I’d give Korea an A-, Malaysia a D," he said in his Bloomberg column titled "One missing jet, one sunken ferry, two responses".

Pesek said in the two weeks since the ferry sank, killing about 300 people on board, the South Korean government had reacted with self-questioning, shame and official penitence.

"President Park Geun Hye issued a dramatic and heartfelt apology. Her No. 2, Prime Minister Chung Hong Won, resigned outright. Prosecutors hauled in the ship’s entire crew and raided the offices of its owners and shipping regulators. Citizens and the media are demanding speedy convictions and long-term reforms," he said.

On the flip side, there was no such reaction on the part of Malaysian authorities 56 days after MH370 vanished, said Pesek.

Lol. Shameful Malaysian government.

Wait ... what???
When a ferry sinks the prime minister has to resign? What is he, the minister of boats?

but why would the prime minister resign? What would it change?
Was he in ANY way responsible for this?
Just firing random people who had nothing to do with it is not really going to help anybody. That is just a witch hunt.
Like burning jews because you think that would improve the economy...

I get you.
Then again, in most cases, the people would wanna see someone who takes the blame and responsible.

In an institution, when you are reporting to a supervisor, if you have done any mistakes, your supervisor is the one to blame although he/she has got nothing to do with the mistake. That's why a good supervisor always defend their subordinates instead of letting them die on their own.

If I am your supervisor and you tell me that you do not do your job right I would fire you and hire somebody who can do it better.

There are things you can do which are almost like firing them. Just assign them the most shittiest job imaginable and they will resign voluntarily.

Oh Shi.. Don't wake the tiger!
LOL I think it's a wonderful idea!
But regardless "voluntarily or not" they would get resignation benefit!

Swim, fishies. Swim through the veil of steel.

Thing is, few people here do their jobs at all, so giving them shitty jobs just gives them an excuse to demand higher pay.

I don't get it. They have one incident each that are totally unrelated and some asshole thinks that he is in such a position to hand letter grades out to governments based solely on the publicised information of their response?

    Currently busy with making the run even better, so I'll post that new one once I'm done. Right now, I had to modify the emulator itself, the tools that makes this video, and some RAM address disassembling / reverse-engineering to get the right values, and such.
