Malaysian Insider - Portal Ditaja oleh Kalimullah?

The Malaysian Insider (or The Insider) is a bilingual news site popular in Malaysia. It has been consistently ranked as one of the top 100 most popular websites in the country with a strong following in Singapore.

The Insider was established by journalist Png Hong Kwang and Sreedhar Subramanian. Png is a journalist while Subramaniam is the former chief operating officer of free-to-air Malaysian television channel ntv7. Subramniam is currently the chief executive officer of the online news organization.[3]
Joan Lau is the managing editor. She was formerly with the New Straits Times. Aiding her is a consultant editor Leslie Lau, a journalist formerly attached to the Straits Times in Singapore

Funding
The funding of the news organization has been a source of much speculation. A number of prominent bloggers based in Malaysia suspected that The Insider was linked to former Editor-in-Chief of New Straits Times, Kallimullah Hassan or UMNO Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin, both considered to be aligned to Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
