Singaporeans from 70 percent walks of life are up in arms and chastising The Straits Times reporter Rachel Chang.

This after Chang wrote an article asking questions and suggesting that public officers and medical professionals, in both the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) and the Ministry of Health (MOH), may have delayed the disclosure of information of a Hepatitis C outbreak to the minister and the public for political reasons.

One Singaporean, Shou Bu Leow, said: “I don’t know if she got the memo, but there is no place in Singapore for a reporter whose sole interest is asking difficult questions and getting at the truth.”

“Who does she think she is? 70 percent of Singaporeans did not vote for this type of wayward behaviour.”

“I don’t remember voting for this during General Election 2015.”

Other Singaporeans said the new 70 percent mandate climate has made it loud and clear that reporters with an agenda to ask questions will be promptly dismissed.

One local, Qu Si Bah, said: “If Rachel Chang wants to ask so many questions and put the government in a tough position, she should just join the opposition and get voted into parliament.”

“That is the only venue to ask tough questions. Actually even then…”

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.

The Straits Times editor said sorry to the Ministry of Health on Oct. 20, 2015, and explained that they did not mean to impugn the integrity of public servants:

The Editor replies: It was not the intention of our column to impugn the integrity of public servants. We also did not mean to imply that the Minister for Health was “unofficially” informed beforehand about this matter. We are sorry that our column gave these wrong impressions.

This after ST’s Assistant Political Editor Rachel Chang wrote an article asking questions and suggesting that public officers and medical professionals, in both the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) and the Ministry of Health (MOH), may have delayed the disclosure of information of a Hepatitis C outbreak to the minister and the public for political reasons.

 

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “ST helped PAP win GE2015 but it doesn’t give them the right or enough brownie points to boss the ministry and minister around.”
Pai Mah Pi, 44-year-old horse stable cleaner

 

sian-half-uncle “There goes her promotion.”
Sheng Zhi, 64-year-old air vent manufacturer

 

happy-bird-girl “She should have just praised Lee Hsien Loong, which would have worked.”
Lee Zhong Li, 17-year-old semi-professional nail art painter
