How did the Straits Times think they could get away with such heavy edits? and

the letter writer had no such intention to use those numbers printed by ST to express those opinions printed by ST. if ST wanted to write those opinions using those letters, they could use the Forum Editor’s name, and write a letter himself. what the Forum Editor did was to use Samuel Wee’s name, and attribute all those thoughts and numbers to him, to make him seem like he has this opinion, which supports the minister whose statistics misrepresented reality. this is tantamount to making things up out of very very thin air. apart from publishing articles that challenge what is true and what is not, now straits times is publishing letters that are obviously untrue. how much should we believe inside the next issue of straits times? amazing, isn’t it?
