Media Cocks

Watching the Result on Mediacock really pissed me off!

They keep cutting off the speech or interview of the opposition especially Low and Chiam's. But they let the cow Khaw talk cock for so long about cycling!

You are bringing shame to your profession, Singapore journalists. You have detoured the route to the goal you've set out the day you decided to go into journalism. You are reporting what some political party"people" want you to report, but not reporting what you SHOULD be reporting.

In Singapore? You "people" don't even dare to post a photo showing the crowd at the Workers Party's rally, taken from the higher floor of the building. Instead, you "people" posted some pathetic front view shots of a very small section of the actual crowd, fearing some high handed pressure.

You gave good exposures to the "big bosses" but gave limited or no exposures to those in the opposite direction. Where is the fairness in reporting? Where is the justice?

This is taken from one of the comments left on of of my earlier post


Did you know I was surfing an American news site once, and the Straits Times was listed there as "Singapore's pro-government daily"? It was the ONLY paper that was so derogatorily described! My god! Even other countries are clued in as to how biased the ST is!


Let me repeat myself, Singapore journalists, you are bringing shame to your profession, you are bringing shame to yourselves, and you are bringing shame to your families.

Calm down Eugene, calm down! No point raising your blood pressure and damaging your health over something you can't change.

And, I don't mean to rile you more, but did you see how the part about LHL saying he had to "FIX the opposition" only got a quarter-page coverage and in SMALL headlines? Whereas the James Gomez incident was blasted for several days over several pages each time. And he was even arrested for "criminal intimidation". Good lord. Worse than Communist Russia or China.

Oh, and btw leon, the govt is talking about controlling political blogs now. They already banned podcasts. So, not too much hope there... Unless you try privoxy or anonymous blogging. ;)
