Malay Mail telah menukar karateristiknya

Ini adalah sebahagian daripada 80 buah berita berserta byline (byline atau nama yang tercatat bersama-sama berita adalah perkara sukar yang sangat diingini oleh wartawan, selepas itu poket koyak belanja rakan) yang ditulis oleh rakan saya di Malay Mail ketika beliau bertugas di sana. Malay Mail telah menukar karateristiknya daripada seorang yang tidak tahu bercakap, malu, cepat hilang idea kepada seorang yang tegas, bersungguh-sungguh dalam mencari maklumat dan mempunyai perspektif pelbagai dalam satu isu yang diberikan kepadanya.

Tiada peluang kedua

Kerana satu soalan beliau diberhentikan dari tempat kerja barunya. Saya yang mencadangkan. Tiada peluang kedua, tiada tindakan tatatertib (kesalahan?) tetapi surat memaklumkan dia diberhentikan.

Rasa bersalah

Saya rasa bersalah kepada beliau kerana peristiwa ini. Beliau sudah menggunakan wang simpanan datang dengan keretapi kerana usaha saya membawa beliau datang ke sini. Saya merasa bersalah kerana beliau sudah melunaskan wang rumah sewanya beserta deposit yang bukan sedikit. Saya merasa bersalah kerana beliau tidak dapat berkhidmat sekurang-kurangnya 30 hari agar mendapat gaji penuh supaya ada ruang survival sementara. Saya mohon maaf kerana janji saya hari ini menjadikan beliau berhadapan keadaan luar jangka ini.

Saya yakin pengalaman beliau bermula daripada Meja Berita Umum kepada Meja Berita Jenayah dapat membantu institusi tersebut. Tetapi kerana personaliti dan gaya kerjanya yang berbeza dan terkejut dengan keadaan luar jangka menjadikan dia mangsa selepas sepuluh hari bekerja.

Ini ialah kisah yang pertama kali saya dengar. Kerana tidak sukakan satu soalan, beliau diberhentikan. Ada juga rantaian kisah-kisah lain.

Twist dari perkara kecil ke perkara besar.

Saya bimbang pemberhentian beliau menjadi isu akhbar. Dari sudut pandang saya, media sukakan provokasi. Bukankah ini provokasi yang bagus apabila wartawan-wartawan yang mengenali beliau datang dan mencipta twist dari perkara kecil ke perkara besar. Sahabat saya tidak menang kalau rakan-rakan media menghidu, tetapi ia adalah serangan terhadap label dan penciptaan persepsi yang memerlukan penjelasan demi penjelasan. Bukankah sekarang ini Anugerah Perdana Menteri?

Soalan-soalan keras

Semalam sahabat di Malay Mail memaklumkan, beliau menghubungi institusi ini bagi mendapatkan pengesahan laporan pelajar yang dihantar ke meja berita. Saya sudah jangka perkara ini akan berlaku. Apa pula selepas ini.

Ia mengingatkan saya kepada pengalaman kerja di MITV, Ansar Channel. Kami diajar memberikan soalan-soalan keras bagi melihat tahap profesionalisme orang yang ditemuduga. Ia mengingatkan saya kepada satu soalan yang saya ajukan kepada wakil Telaga Biru ketika pelancaran buku Ustazah Nor Bahyah di Restoran Seri Melayu, Jalan Raja Chulan.

“Kita sudah mempunyai banyak buku motivasi. Jadi adakah produk ini akan menjadi produk yang sudah boleh dijangka sama dan serupa seperti yang lain. Jadi di mana istimewanya?”

Bagi penghasil produk, soalan seperti ini dengarnya seperti merendah-rendahkan produk beliau. Tambahan lagi, saya membawa video kamera merakam kenyataan beliau. Saya tidak sedar bahawa saya orang pertama yang bertanyakan soalan itu. Kata orang dalam dunia berita, soalan perangkap.

Tetapi beliau tenang, “Buku berkonsep santai, berwarna, ilustrasi serta foto dengan penyampaian bersahaja, mudah dan ringan menjadi pendekatan yang dipilih untuk disasarkan kepada pelajar, remaja dan dewasa,” jelas Tuan Haji Muhammad Zakaria, penulis bersama ketika majlis sembang buku.

Beliau marah? Mungkin sedikit. Tetapi sikap profesional menjadikan kami saling bertukar kad dan mencipta hubungan.

Kami dilatih menjadi pendesak

Kami dilatih menjadi pendesak, pencari kepada maklumat dan tegas dengan prinsip. Ia mengambil masa yang lama untuk mengubah sikap gila-gila saya yang diajar oleh media ini apabila bekerja di tempat lain. Sama halnya dengan sahabat saya, beliau berhadapan dengan keadaan mengubah lanskap pemikiran secara kejutan sama seperti saya setahun lalu.

Tambahan lagi beliau wartawan jenayah. Faham-faham sahajalah.

Tetapi sekali-sekala terlepas juga.

Kepada sahabat, dalam kedukaan aku mohon maaf.
