Pseudonymity alleges that The Straits Times covered up Temasek Holdings’ role in the purchase of Shin Corp, and quotes an article in the Financial Times to prove just how duplicitous our national press is.
I’ve read — more than once — articles in the ST on the tangle Temasek has got itself into (and how it’s claiming it’s done nothing wrong). Seeing how unfriendly the ST is to archiving or any sort of free access to articles, here are some I’ve found hosted elsewhere: Temasek’s acquisition of Shin Corp, Shin Corp sale above board, says family, Shin Corp deal fully complied with Thai law, says Temasek.
I’m not sure how objective the articles are, but they’re not hiding anything by not mentioning Temasek in an article about Thaksin’s political troubles. It’s merely straying off on a tangent, and it was probably prudent of the editor (and I’m surprised the editor actually did their job!) to not include distracting information.
And pretty selective reading on the part of Pseudonymity.
