So, you would have probably known by now that the Straits Times made a couple of big mistakes yesterday.
You would find the following two pictures familiar.
Our first elected president is Mr Ong Teng Cheong, hello!
And Mr Nathan was elected unopposed for both times…
And this time, Straits Times made a third mistake.
Mr Benjamin Sheares passed away in 1981, not 1985… facepalm.
Some people said that Straits Times tried the first mistake cause they were trying to downplay Mr Ong Teng Cheong’s deeds.
But from these string of mistakes, I think it is quite clear that this is not the case. More like a case of poor SOPs and lack of oversights from the editorial team lah.
A netizen had a hypothesis on the reason for the string of mistakes.
We wonder why.
That is all.
