Covid19: Unethical Zaobao Journalist Published Story Taken From Instagram Without Permission

A Zaobao journalist known on IG as @songpei published a story on an NTU student who had Covid19, and took pictures from the latter's Instagram story without permission.

The journalist had tried to ask the student for an interview about his experience with Covid, but the student declined and rejected him. However, he still went ahead to publish the story with the latter's IG pictures, and even details of his family members. He even tried to get away with it by changing the student's surname and family relations.

The journalist had only started writing for Zaobao in March 2020. Just 3 months into the job and we can see such unethical behaviour emerging. SPH, what kind of journalists are you hiring? This is no wonder why no one wants to read your papers anymore.
