Don't comment and can't report
Another dark day for msm for reporting on data that were wrong. And it took a blogger, Alex Au of Yawning Bread to do his own checking to confirm that the numbers published were indeed a mistake. Rental price of a 3 room flat in Jurong East was reported to be $2,500 but actually it was for two adjoining units. What happens to the professionalism and the checkings and double checkings to ensure accurate reporting that were bragged by the professionals as their trade mark for excellence? We in cyberspace are so sloppy and lucky that we can say anything without being professional and accurate. The other point highlighted by this case is that the two units were let out to foreign workers. Any problem? If there is no control and 10 to 20 foreign workers were squeezed into the two units, how would it affect the security and social aspects of residents living there? Who would want to leave their aged, housewives and young daughters in the midst of strangers? Would the authority like to look into this?
