Singapore’s TODAY newspaper published a centerfold ad targeting Straits Times’ “half-truths” – they apparently truncated TODAY’s letter to Straits Times’ editor to a point that it distorts the meaning. The tag goes, “Why pay for half-truths?” Ohhh, ouch. TODAY, by the way, is under Mediacorp Press, which was form when Singapore Press Holding’s Streats merged with TODAY (SPH also publishes the Straits Times).

Mediacorp incidentally is owned 100% by Temasek Holdings, which in turn is owned 100% by the Ministry of Finance, and SPH has an interest in Mediacorp TV, another division of Mediacorp. Some turf war? Would it escalate to the almost-fratricide of competing newspapers in Malaysia? Am I reading too much in this?

Yes, I am. I probably am.
