SPH propaganda standard no standard, self insulting

The PAP has always thought that cheaperer = betterer. By cutting costs, this will allow elites to continue leeching on taxpayers.

One easy peasy way to do is to cut labour cost by employing foreigners. Coupled with no oversight by local managers, this has resulted in Singapore being slowly turned upside down.

Besides turning Singapore upside down, typos are now as common as MRT major disruptions. This also confirms a bochap attitude among grassroots leaders and management of government organisations, eg CCs. Perhaps the PAP is trying to inject some much needed humour?

With more foreigners working in government-linked companies, such as propaganda mouthpieces like AsiaOne, typos are increasingly common too. Would a Singaporean SPH editor have made this mistake?

SPH editors are still living in the past, believing that propaganda works as well in the internet age.

One hilarious example:

AsiaOne published an article by The Star which was all about improving Malaysian university rankings. In the 366-word article, Nanyang Technological University appeared only once in the last 25-word sentence: “Nanyang Technological Universi­ty, Singapore tops the list this year followed by Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and Ko­­rea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology.”

In an attempt to please political master PAP, the kay kiang editor tried to spin the story into one of NTU topping world rankings when …

The Star article was all about Malaysian universities!

A reputable institution does not need any propaganda to prop up its image. If SPH still wants to continue brainwashing Singaporeans, it should do a better job. And don’t forget information is no longer totally controlled by PAP.

    MSM just has to shut up.

    IF STANDARDS have gone up,so too would have been the NATIONAL PRODCUTIVITY.

    SINGING SONGS of themselves bascially,these FT-REPORTERS can only CON the ‘conners’ themselves – the PAP SCHOLARLY IDIOTS OR DAFTS as called by LKY,their MENTOR – BUT THEY CAN never ever bluff rational n thinking sgs except perhaps some educated young voters lured by some cheap lollies and lost their sense????

    everywhere you go,everywhere you look hard enuf,you see SG getting sunk slowly but surely.
    only DAFT SHCOLARS SEE N THINK OTHERWISE or perhaps they are to bust counting their $$$?!

    take a simple example.
    THE FOOD AT FOODCOURTS,you pay more for less qualit.
    sometimes,i wonder its singaporean foods i am eating????!!!

    SINGAPORE – FOOD PARADISE???

    THINK WE BETTER NOT BOAST.

  • Who's tat LooneLee PM in G20:

    Not to forget at the recent launch of the Speak Mandarin Campaign, a wrong character was used. Supposedly it’s “听说读写” (tīng shuō dú xiě), but instead “渎” which means showing disrespect and contempt was used instead of 读 (read).

    What a shame! A campaign to promote mandarin but a wrong chinese character was used yet all the guests-of-honour, including disGraceFul minister and CEO of NHB (minister Heng’s wife) did not spot the error and still happily posed for photos together with the mistake.

    Seriously like the upside down flag, sg is being turned upside down by our expensive policy makers and their cheap foreigners.

    If we continue to boycott the news I am sure when readership goes below the danger level, they may give it to us for free.

    They will do it because their reason for existence is a political one.

  • Nizhemoshou:

    The picture shows the one mounted upside down and another was correctly displayed. Cant be done by a local Sg as he should know which is the right side to display.

    More the work of an idiotic FW who cant be bothered to ensure he displayed correctly as it is after all not his country flag.

    There should be an investigation and action taken against the person responsible as wrongful display of flag is an offence under the state law is it not

  • opposition dude:

    Living in the past is very good for PAP as it allows them to reminisce about the good old days when they controlled all avenues of information dissimination. Oh how the days were back then with stories of how Lee Kayu and PAP built up Singapore, how good CPF and housing were, how world class the transport system was and my personal favourite, how they had the best talent in the land.

    Fast forward into the 21st cntury and PAP knows it isn’t as good as it was before as it’s policies have shown. It’s just the majority of kiasees out there who are risk averse to voting opposition. Otherwise PAP would have been in a coalition government as early as the 90s.

  • Outsource but no supervising?:

    Outsourcing almost everything but with little or no monitoring, lazy supervision with very poor control and feedback.

    That’s what you get – laissez faire management with little responsibility. Part time MPs distracted with other commitments.

    This Super bochapness – this tardiness in many civil office is like a disease eating into every section n dept of every office holder – only time they are diligent is when they are fixing their political dissidents n downing opposition voices.

    Sure is an easy way to earn their fat millions!

  • NTU has world best INVENTIONS?:

    I wonder has NTU produced native Singaporean grads who invented world’s best inventions as Great as the iPhone ?

    If not, WHY ?
    Does Academic result equal Real World performance ?

    If not, why?

    And what does this say about a scholar system?

    If indeed academic result equal Real World performance, then Singapore NTU should have produced world best in class inventions as great and revolutionary as the iPhone.

    How about Raffles grads?

    PAP mah, say one thing and do another. It’s pretty standard by now. Tell us no need degree and parliament is full of degeee holders. Tell us need to upskill and they don’t need to upskill. Why upskill when a part time MP job gives you $16k monthly tio bo? Give you also you want for sure.

    But these days they talk never think one lah. Josephine Teo is now infamous for her famous don’t need a large sex to screw comment and goondu Loong hasn’t shown he is so bright either with his oh so lame excuse of not knowing about the secret committee and recusing himself.

    Just wait for the next bodoh statement from them lah, at the rate it’s going these days it won’t be too far away.

    Well, not surprising outcomes when everything from toys to daily items are being scrutinised, censored, limited and controlled by the authorities. Anything that is deemed ‘harmful’ in any way is not allowed to see daylight here in this dot. That’s the norm here. Just have to suck thumb and ‘enjoy’ our system prefixed decades ago. Enjoy…
