STRAITS TIMES MISREPRESENTS OUTCOME OF POHA APPEAL

The Straits Times Facebook post* only mentions the dissenting judgment that got OUT-VOTED. The outcome of the case was the exact opposite - the judges decided that the Government is NOT a person who can sue for harassment under the Protection from Harassment Act. Can liddat one meh? Judging from comments, this has misled some people already. *Just to clarify - the actual judgment is in the article, but I think most people would reasonably assume the Facebook excerpt would reflect - not contradict - the final decision. Confusing messaging.

JOSEPHINE TEO: STRAITS TIMES MIGHT NOT HAVE CAPTURED EVERYTHING THE WAY I INTENDED

Social media was abuzz with The Straits Times coverage of my interview. They might not have captured everything in the way I intended. But in all seriousness, we need an honest conversation on how, as a society, we can get ready for Millennial families. Every way I turn, I see more of our Millennials boldly stepping up to overturn long-held assumptions about what #Singaporeans can and cannot achieve. They inspire me a great deal. You probably know such Millennials too.

I would like to raise questions regarding the authenticity and quality of this information. Arissa Hee is Lorenn Arissa Seoh Hee Jin, Joel Kong's legal wife since October 2013 based on a search with the Registry Of Marriages Singapore.

It is not only unethical but appalling that this 'vigilante' has to hide a basic truth about its customers. Straits Times should not condone and endorse organizations that has such discrepancies in their claims. It is clear that Joel Kong has calculated and premeditated intentions to mislead consumers and boost his credibility.

FORMER ST ASSOCIATE EDITOR JANADAS DEVAN SLAMS LEE WEI LING FOR ACCUSING ST OF CENSORSHIP, CALLS IT EDITING

We are expected to believe she suffered so much oppression, writing for ST, that she willingly persisted with the experience over almost ten miserable years. And then, at the conclusion of that prolonged period of agony, she lovingly gathered the products of her oppression into a best-selling collection of essays. How credible can that be? Reading Wei Ling’s unedited writings was like sailing through a fog. The effort of turning her raw material into coherent articles -- that’s what I remember most about editing Wei Ling.
