The Straits Times – Singapore Newspaper

In Uncategorized on May 7, 2010 at 2:39 am

Today I started my subscription to the local newspaper, The Straits Times.  I don’t know a lot about the politics, etc. around here or what is really censored or state controlled or what.  That said, virtually every article told both sides of the story.  They had big sections on the elections in the UK and Phillipines that really just seemed factual and gave the pluses and minues of each candidate.  Now, I haven’t been here that long, and I’m sure the biases will eventually come through, but it is a far cry from the partianship of the American media.  (PS this post may have been written by the Singapore gov’t.)
