Tan CJ story shows new media too is BS

There’s a lot about speculation about Tan CJ’s demotion in cyberspace. But kee chui those pontificators who knew that he had a rare form of TB, and was cleared of TB in 2015 before they strutted their stuff? There’s an ST article. Goggle it up.

I can only raise my hand a little because I wrote this. I vaguely remembered he had been seriously ill recently but hadn’t bothered to google the issue because I wanted to go meditate.

But other better staffed and resourced publications should have done their research. I mean mothership had three writers writing one piece (Btw, it was pure BS so I’m not linking to it.) but they obviously didn’t know that he was seriously ill only a few yrs back. Makes me think that this publication, allegedly funded by Philip Yeo (Remember him?) after George Yeo (Remember him?) pitched to him is the Chinese twin to the “Indians”.

And then there was his much ridiculed comment about old women telling him they were were collecting cardboard “for exercise”. It was so easy for the anti-PAP websites to verify if this was not true, and that they needed the money. But none did. All they had to do was to ask the old women as he had identified where they were operating from.

It’s difficult to do investigative journalism here (juz ask Terry’s Online Channel). But in this case, it was so easy.

But maybe someone did ask the women, and found that they were really exercising. So better to keep quiet about the truth?

  1. Maybe kena TB from having to visit all those dormitories & worksites when he was heading MOM?? Diagnosed in Feb 2015. Transferred to MSF in May 2015. Scared liao. LOL!
