If SPH have wide readership and trust from the public then why is it's business falling behind? If it is neutral in reporting why are their top management PAP members and not opposition members or something else? If the SPH is independent why ask for PAP fundings?

Sure got independence...else why 61% vote them in with a supermajority hold on parliament...no doubts about it...Iswaran is 101% right...😷 Digital media control? PAPSingapore ministers ass usual never know how to deflect their idiotic choices. Trying damn hard to come across as intelligent reBUTTal but FAIL!

Sgrean trust straits times in reporting English Premier League scores. Not sure trust extends to current affairs I will still not buy their paper because it is one sided and propaganda mouthpiece for the govt. It’s sales dwindles because it has no credibility. Airy fairy words from the minister. There is trust in the local media? He made up the poll numbers maybe. The news is full of propaganda.

well...remember this from government control media?
