Posted on 05 January 2014

Plus, ST even perpetuated a falsehood internationally.

The Straits Times‘ inability to get things right has taken another turn for the worse.

This time, in comical fashion, ST labelled Sheares Avenue as Marina Coastal Expressway in a Jan. 1, 2014 report.

Their mistake was called out by SURE Singapore, which is part of the National Library Board and a government-backed initiative to combat false information.

Not only that, the Washington Post has even written a piece clarifying false news about Kim Jong Un feeding his uncle to 120 hungry dogs, which was initially reported and perpetuated by ST.

Wang Pei can be considered a new citizen of Singapore. She has been here all her life, just that her environment's changed beyond recognition.
