SPH Media (Dis)Trust

SPH Media Trust is getting $180,000,000 a year from the government which is paid for by us, taxpayers.

This saga of inflating daily circulation numbers by 10% to 12% is clearly misleading paying clientele of advertisers.

SPH Media distrust! More like it!

“There were instances where copies were printed, counted for circulation and then destroyed”

Remember Ng Yay Choon, their former CEO, also known as “Umbrage Ng”?

Does he take umbrage over this current state saga of SPH?

What has Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI) Minister Josephine Teo , Senior Ministers of State Janil Puthucheary & Tan Kiat How got to say about this?

$900,000,000 of tax payers funds pledged over 5 years to fund SPH by the government, isn’t this a disaster?

SPH needs to provide half yearly progress updates to the government, as part of this deal, the government should make public this progress updates as the government should be accountable to tax payers as it’s tax payers who are footing the $180,000,000 a year bill for the next 5 years, amounting to a total of $900,000,000 across 5 years!

  • Billy ma:

    Apparently it’s an open secret in the company about the secret recipe to cook a good dish all the times & every time.
    Anyone wants to make a guess whether PAP top people know about this kitchen work?

    The excuse about shrinking readership is due to digitalisation of news & readily access to global news & whatnot.
    The true fact is if the newspaper is about truth, being fair & balance, & to bring the news as is to the readers, there’ll be demands for the hardcopies.

    But this newspaper is all about telling what the PAP want people to know & it’s unbelievable that every policy pull out by PAP is always good or even close to perfect.
    This is the biggest reason why people are not reading this newspaper anymore.

    So now the newspaper can continues to do what & how it is doing in the past, except that moving forward, it says almost unlimited financial resources to do more of the same.

    From Toyota to a Ferrari.

  • only stupid people vote pap:

    Remember Ng Yay Choon, their former CEO, also known as “Umbrage Ng”?

    Does he take umbrage over this current state saga of SPH?

    the fraud happened when umbrage fatty was the ceo.

    in other words, umbrage fatty is culpable.

    if pap is an honest government, umbrage fatty shall not have the chance to take umbrage over this current saga in sph but rather have fear, fear of a lifetime jail term and the clawing back of the millions he took from sph.

    everyone, sinkies included, knows pap is dishonest. to give pap the benefit of the doubt, let everyone, sinkies included, will indict umbrage fatty for the fraud or will just give the excuse for umbrage fatty on his behalf, it is an honest mistake let’s move on.

    under former pap liar lky, liar that he is, he will persecute umbrage fatty. under pap chief clown, whose brother told the truth about what kind of a person pap chief clown is, by all indications, pap chief clown wife shall write a facebook post citing all the medals umbrage fatty has so much so it is inconvenient to persecute umbrage fatty.

  • This is 100% fraud:

    copies that were printed, counted for circulation and then destroyed

    The method of fraud in sph is systematic.

    The method of fraud in sph, as seen, cannot take place by just one person only.

    The method of fraud in sph took place when pap Khaw Boon Wan was Chairman and pap paper general umbrage ng was CEO.

    quote from TOC –
    One cannot help but recall what Mr Khaw said when he was still a minister,
    “In Japan, the chairman, the CEO will call a press conference and take a deep bow, and in the good old days, they may even commit hara-kiri.”

    We knew, all along, pap folks all tell lies. Such as all schools are good schools, vote pap HDB value never goes down, need GST to help sinkies, need ceca imports to create jobs for sinkies, etc.

    But we also KNOW, present tense, pap has two interpretations to every utterance that pap makes. When it is about PSP WP, pap pretends to be white when it is all black inside. When it is about pap, pap doesn’t even bother to pretend to be white, just insisting that pap is black all along.

    Therefore.

    Zero chance for pap Khaw as the sph Chairman when the fraud is taking place to call a press conference and take a deep bow. ZERO Chance That pap Khaw is an honorable human to do what he says.

    Also zero chance for the ball-less pap paper general umbrage ng to admit to the fraud and commit hara-kiri. ZERO Chance That pap paper general ng is an officer and gentleman but rather a piece of pap shit that bullies sinkies who stupidly volunteer their youth for pap NS

    BTW where is the INDIAN malay president? Is it because she is also a confirmed liar that all she does is get S$5m each year to close her eyes to the wrongdoings, financial fraud in truth, happening in the nation?

    Again I say this is not fraud lar, its anak anak compared to the CONs you find at MTF, that cost lifes.

    At best SPH media can be guilty of “MASSAGING” the figures nia, what’s the big deal?

    Its an honest mistake and not meaningful to keep harping on, lets move on, some entitled millionair millisters would say.

    It is fraud. Here is the definition of fraud. Anak2 or abang2, it is a fraud when it is a fraud.

    Definition —

    a thing intended to deceive others, typically by unjustifiably claiming or being credited with quantities or qualities

    Linked to fraud is dishonesty. SPH management, from its Chairman, CEO to the last man/woman who has a hand in the circulation numbers, are dishonest and have committed fraud.

    Just because pap clown wife is going to exonerate them via her facebook post, expected soon in the next few days, does not make SPH management, from its Chairman, CEO to the last man/woman who has a hand in the circulation numbers, honest or unfraud.

    A fraud is a fraud. A fraud implies dishonesty.

    Tech: Bro, if this had happened in the US of A, I would agree totally with you, but I am saying this in the context of Sinkieland, you don’t believe me you go lodge a police report and cry fraud see if they agree with you or not. Police will either say you got no locus standi or they say AGC say its an honest mistake. Wanna bet? lol

  • pap LIES and sph BSes:

    The recent news about SPH Media inflating circulation figures of its titles has cast a spotlight on the relationship between circulation as well as readership numbers and advertising rates.

    This is especially since its chief executive officer Teo Lay Lim has written to advertisers to say that advertising rates were not linked to circulation figures but independent third-party readership data, namely from market research company GfK, according to national daily The Straits Times (ST).

    Ms Goh, the AAMS chief, said this does not “exonerate the practice of falsifying circulation figures ….

    sph, caught red handed, continues trying to BS its way out, same as pap lies its way out, by saying cock and bull is hen and chicken. if circulation numbers are not important, why do sph folks, from chairman to ceo to senior executives waste so much effort in doing the following – copies were printed, counted for circulation and then destroyed and and a project account was “injected with additional funding over a period of time to purchase fictitious circulation”.

    isn’t it far better for a pap minister of integrity to set up a BOI to look into the matter and to stop funding the sph with sinkie tax monies and to put into jail the senior executives and to ensure the Chairman of sph and the CEO of sph commit hara-kiri per the rules laid down by pap ex minister Khaw Boon Wan of Penang Malaysia?

    sph is caught. sph continues to spin all manner of justification. as if sinkies are 100% stupid to believe. Repeating here. if circulation numbers are not important, why do sph folks waste so much time and resources to print copies, count them for circulation and then destroy them? why do sph folks set up a special account to purchase fictitious circulation?

    to date, not a single pap parleeementarian has spoken on the matter. just the same silence as when pap Mike Palmer palmed pap PA Laura Ong swee swee. at that time, when esteemed WP MP Mr Yaw Shin Leong was a little too close to an ardent female WP supporter, every pap Lj and every pap Cb with a mouth all angrily cursed at esteemed WP MP Mr Yaw Shin Leong.

    cannot like this lah if pap is an honest government with Integrity.

  • It is fraud, said Mr Lim Tean:

    TRE Tech:
    Again I say this is not fraud lar, its anak anak compared to the CONs you find at MTF, that cost lifes.

    At best SPH media can be guilty of “MASSAGING” the figures nia, what’s the big deal?

    Its an honest mistake and not meaningful to keep harping on, lets move on, some entitled millionair millisters would say.

    According to Mr Lim Tean, “Printing copies to be counted as part of the circulation and then destroying them, setting up of a special project fund to buy back your own paper so as to make it appear that your circulation was more than what they were-are these not fraudulent practices?”

    Tech: I would agree with Lim Tean, BUT in Sinkieland, NOTHING the party or its related ever do is ever an offence, you believe or not?
