What kind of tooth?

It is a fact that msm have limited space and have to be very selective on what to print, including forum letters. They is also the editor's choice or agenda. Thus many issues seem to die off after a few days of reporting. This gives the impression that no one is interested in them any more. And some jokers conveniently may conclude that it is all over, issue accepted and even supported by the people. So if the msm stop printing criticisms about an issue, the issue is now acceptable or supported by the people. Is that truth or tooth? The good thing about cyberspace is that issues can be repeated and continued, postings over and over again to keep them alive.

You must be kidding, redbean. Three quarters of the ST is covered with advertisements, and 10% devoted to reproducing articles from other newsagencies or publications from abroad. So, domestic issues or feedback is secondary to advertisements and featured aricles which we can read elsewhere? I would call the ST an advertisement billboard rather than a newspaper, but of course, money is the paramount concern of the editor, not news. That's the truth.
