News portal issues denial over fake screenshot
PETALING JAYA: A news portal has issued a denial over a fake screenshot of a page supposedly from its website with the headline “Najib pernah ada hubungan sulit dengan anak saya, kata Mahathir” (Najib had an affair with my daughter Marina, says Mahathir).
The Malaysian Insider said its reporters did not write and it did not publish it such an article.
