The Temasek Review Of Mark Chow

For those who are unfamiliar with Mark Chow's molest case, read the related article below.

The way I see it, he is not gay but just saying that to lessen the damage as a result of his molestation of his staff.

I supposed if one is gay then any attacks will be perceived as less sexual predatory and hence be viewed as a lesser charge?

Nice try but if I were the judge, I won't buy it. I would strike that off as a lame attempt to worm himself out of what he has done.

Ok. Enough of that.

The point of this entry is not about the case but rather about the headline deployed by The Temasek Review.

"YPAP Member".

Is there a need to mention his membership affiliation?

Seriously, what has his YPAP membership has to do with his molestation case? If nothing, then why bring this up?

I smell a smear.

It is ironic that in their "About Us" page, they claimed "...balanced and unbiased coverage..." and yet they come up with content like this.

Can't say much about quality there, now can we?

There are a lot of PAP bashing articles in this website (which is fine because we are all free to express our views), riding on emotions at a time when the people are quite unhappy with the current PAP gahmen.

But seriously, is the current PAP gahmen really so bad?

You and I both know that they are not perfect and even further from that in recent years but certainly not to the extent to warrant crucifixion. So what's with all the polar sentiments?

So. The $raits Times vs The Temasek Review.

I'd still read both but with equal measure of salt pinch as I feel the element of bullshit is about 6 ounces on one side and 170 grams on the other.

I agree. It's so hard to get unbiased views these days. That's why when I get to read one, I rejoice. Today sometimes have cutting views that are more objective. They used to have a lot more, but at least these view didn't totally disappear.

ruok: I think at the end of the day, they too sell out to readership numbers.
