Silly hope that ST will not be like China Daily, Pravda or KCNA

Yesterday was the last time I will be reading from a subscribed Singapore newspaper.

No right thinking person will read the China Daily expecting anything other than partial news that support the official line of the Chinese government. Ditto for Pravda ( Russian Federation) or KCNA ( North Korea).

The only reason we will feel angry when our only English newspaper appears biased and partisan towards the government ( which incidentally owns it in a not too complex shareholding structure) is that deep down somewhere in our hearts ( or brains) is that we thought that somehow the Journalists could be allowed to act and write as professional fair-minded Singaporeans (or maybe PRs).

I ( now I am getting personal) thought, naively now its clear, that the senior people that run the Straits Times ( now I have named the paper) have a conscience to do what is right for us. That they cannot be so blatantly biased or else I and others will get disgusted and not read their paper anymore. Well I was wrong and they were right.

They could and were and will be blatant and yet people like me , till yesterday, would buy and read with a glimmer of hope that is totally unwarranted. Hope that they will do the right thing. It wont happen anytime soon.

I have unsubscribed to the Straits Times. In investment terms we call this “cutting loss”.

Writing to the Forum Page ( and why I write) is also a rather unusual thought process. That is the subject of another post.

We live in difficult but exciting times.

    Precisely, it’s as good as fake news, intentionally half baked, one sided, partisan, biased, designed to spread untruths, and stir emotion against the innocence and other parties.

    BTW, aiding in falsely incriminating the innocence is unjust and a crime.

    I won’t be spending a dime on such shits and I won’t be reading it even if it’s issued free. Cleaning my puppy poop may be suitable, however.

    I STOP reading the Shitty Times and watch the Fake news on TV years ago…only when an interesting subject of “REASON” arises do I refer to the Net to see how stoopid or interesting it is…

    TWO things can happen when you read or watch what I mentioned…Angst or Conditioned depending on the ability of your mind to “THINK”…the Bastard STOP and TAUGHT you how to think through Fear & Intimidation

    AND…you can see his evil in “Full Glory” when watching reducted and edited Parliament sitting…what had it not been Reduced or Edited???

    “THINK” and you will find the answer within the soul of your heart…NOT the words of a man with NO HEART!!!

    I have done it many years ago. Not worth reading it as I find the reporters not professional enough to write any good article. I agree a regime change is a must to improve not only on reporting but in many other areas too.

    “Yesterday was the last time I will be reading from a subscribed Singapore newspaper.”?!!!

    Seow! You are late by 20 years!

    The Great Asia also stopped relying on the mainstream media for news in the past two decades.

    I have said before, I read and watch news from the local media to look for lies and fake news. And I can spot them almost every day.

    Check their news on China in the past 10 years, and then compare to my comments here.

    In the past 10 years, I have told you how exactly China would develop.

    And I even told you that Lee 呆 would play play with China is the South China Sea – even before he made the first move!

    Ha ha ha!

    This is a typical primitive angmoh worshipers comment.

    They can only think in black vs white or good vs evil mode.

    They are ideology mules!

  • DPathetic SIN Journalism:

    ST chief Editor is known to citizenry to be a position reserved for their best fake news papplp pr papbrownosers or papbolanpa eunuch who has no ball to make good on his own. To verify, check thru who hsve been there before n now. ST doesnt engage journalists or just reporter, their criteria of recruitment is plp bootlicking brownnosing ability. This is why the plp manned Comiittee on fake news recommends the mainstream media on what it means to the lps by fake new n real news. To ST their %1 plp mainstrean media with one of their former Chief Editor was pushed to be their plp on top of them but effectivelu beholdened to them as evidenced by the attitude shown by the ashened le Orrible to late President Ong n his wife whose title of First Lady was stripped at will n herphoto removed form displayimg beside him. But the dn lie was exposed when the photo r back with subsequent President who succumbed to remain what they r credited by.

    Pathetic. Depraving. Disgusting. se scumbag plps.

  • states times snr editors:

    it is widely circulated in INTERNET that 2 senior states times senior editors, marc lim and daryl chin, have abused power for sexual gratification over an intern.

    out comes the an neh editor justifying why such behavior cannot be sacked. because, apparently, these 2 senior editors are very good in fake news so much so cannot be replaced.

    horror of horrors.

    what message is the fatty paper general CEO of the states times saying to the future generations of female interns?

    get ffffed but too bad because we protect our kind.

    such ffffing ethically bad organization. no wonder it can exist as clown pap mouthpiece for so ffffing long.

    so sad that a state owned organization condones such hooligan behavior. looks the exactly the same like how pap clown is fixing WP. unethically abusing power for advantage.

    marc lim and daryl chin abused power for ffff’s. pap clown abused power for S$m via political way. truly WTF.

    One very good example how the ShitTimes announces the two editors’ misconduct as compared to news info from TOC & The Independent, even a 3 yo can see the difference.

    You read their article, you came out blur sotong don’t know what they are talking about. Whereas, fuller details can be found on others. What a shame.

    All these pro china fans like to call people bastar* or bananas .

    If one baidu basta*d means 私生子.

    And i unsure if pro china fans dont know or know partially or fully aware but act blur or in denial ??? … refusal to bring up the fact that Confucius is a basta*d !

    https://www.baidu.com/sf_zd/question/14152775.html&fr=wenda_ala&ms=1&rid=9485708113198967413?word=孔子

    孔子是不是私生子

    It is written in 史記 – 司马迁

    According to the first complete biography of Confucius, the Shiji, his dad, a warlord named Shu Liang He, and his mom, a member of the Yan clan, “came roughly together,” indicating either a rape, concubinage, or some other sort of extramarital shenanigan.

    I knew the fact long time ago . But with respect i do not want to highlight. But all these pro china far highs again and again want to push it.

    Sorry but like i say they keep pushing. They have to be educated to respect others even though others are not pro china. By the way domestic i dont interfer. Anyway theres still many 勁爆料 to be expose .

    I have a secret to share.
    I believe, if we all boycott state media, it will still need papers be given out to everyone because of it’s Political Function.
    It needs to propagate info from garment to peasants.
    So, my point is, we can actually get FREE newspapers IF we know that the state media needs us more than we need them.

    So, singkies, if you are as wise as me, you know you can have FREE NEWSPAERS FOR LIFE.

    The two senior editors who had affairs with an intern. I dun wan to read info coming from the minds of such characters.

    Be smart, boycott and you will be given free newspaper. They may even beg you to read their papers. If you lucky, they will pay you to read their newspapers.
