Former SPH manager: I never believe any news articles by SPH after I left the company
Posted by temasektimes on May 30, 2012
A former employee of Singapore Press Holdings Mr Peter Gan said he never believe any news articles published by SPH after he left the company.
Mr Gan worked as a product manager in SPH between 2010 and 2011.
In a comment posted on a Facebook discussion thread about the heated exchange between WP Chief Low Thia Kiang and Lianhe Zaobao Chief Editor Wu Xindi on the Singapore media being used as a ‘government too’, Mr Gan wrote:
“I used to work in SPH and although I support neither WP or PAP because I believe the bigger picture here is on the issues raised, rather than which party is better / worse, I totally agree with Mr Low.”
He added that he never believe in any news articles by SPH again since he left the company:
“Let me put it in another way: I used to read Straits Times, Business Times, Zaobao, Wanbao, TNP and believed what I read in the news since I was young. However, ever since I worked and left SPH I realize I can never ever see SPH in the same light, and I will NEVER ever believe any news articles by SPH ever again.”
Mr Gan did not elaborate on why he felt this way.
The Singapore media is now ranked 150th in the world in terms of press freedom by U.S. NGO Freedom House this year.
