Straits Times downplayed anti-PRC sentiments among Singaporeans in New York Times article

Posted by temasektimes on July 30, 2012

The New York Times carried an article last Friday on the rise of anti-PRC sentiments among Singaporeans with the headlines “In Singapore, Vitriol against Chinese newcomers”

The same article was published in the Straits Times today with a different title “Singapore’s unique immigration woes’ to make it sound more politically correct:

    The ‘unique’ thing is this immigration issues has now reached boiling point. The only ‘non-unique’ thing is our multi-million dollars ministers and Shitty Times trying to whitewash woes and continue to project their efficient image to the world.

  2. New York Times seems to have crossed the line this time…

    • New York Times is a press company in America, the worlds largest immigration nation. That country fought the Nazis. They seen the worst in anti-immigration. They vowed it should never happen again, anywhere in the world. That is why Americans and American press do not take well to such anti-foreign sentiment, wherever it may be.

      Mod’s note:

      There’s a difference between xenophobia and cultural genocide.

  3. The US was, and still is, the largest immigration country in the world.
    The reason why they are pro-immigration is because they battled the Nazis. They learnt from history. So they won’t repeat it.

      Well said. These women from China lacks INTEGRITY, MORALS, LOVE, SOCIAL VALUES, and the list goes on. They are shameless FREELOADERS who only worship MONEY.

    “Unique immigration woes” is a better name. “Vitriol” is one sided and implied that the locals are not justified when they describe thrash as thrash.

    • Read my response on why America does not like anti-immigrant sentiment.

      • I am DAFT so WHAT ! said

        Which side is the one-sided? Objectivity is of same sides of both sides, friend. So point here is it balanced and fair – nothing to do with what others. especially they are another part of the globe, think, feel or do which has got no relation to what happens here.

      • The Americans fought the Nazis. They have seen the worst. They have vowed to not let it or something similar happen again, anywhere in the world. That is why their press do not take well to anti-immigrant sentiment.

      • Dogmeat said

        Singapore does not share the same value system and political correctness as America. We are pragmatic, what is right is whatever that will protect and preserve the country. You need not argue that US has lots more problems than Singapore caused by their breed of “lowest-common-denominator”, stupidity based democracy.

      • This is not ’bout America’s problems. This is ’bout the reason why The New York Times phrased it the way it was.

  8. I am DAFT so WHAT ! said

    The ST is dping itself a massive disfavour because what they are doing is by downplaying it, in a way catching only the UNEDUCATED, UNINFORMED – thereby pushing aside those WHO KNOWS the reality, and those who knows the reality ARE NOT simpletons.
    And when this process continues in this manner and has been, the intellectuals and knows better WOULD go elsewhere, NATURALLY.
    And thus ST has fcccked their OWN arses because the VERY fact that they are doing this has DRIVEN the intellectuals WHOM they MUST have NEEDED to stay and read the Shit Times, IF NOT for the adverisements of jobs, and products sales.
    So this is simple EQ and simple MANAGEMENT ideas/execution.
