Media Block Out On Yishun MRT Incident?
I flipped through Straits Times just now, want to read more about the incident happened at Yishun MRT yesterday afternoon around 12PM. To my surprise, they never cover anything regarding this incident. NOTHING AT ALL. This is strange.
Then I went to Channel News Asia. I was disappointed at the fact that I could find anything there. I checked yesterday’s Wanbao and SinMing cover pager online, it is not about that as well. Not just that, AsiaOne also covered NONE. I checked Yahoo Singapore, also covered nothing about it. There is nothing on Omy.sg as well. Normally, be it suicide or not, this is considered a Dua Daiji in Singapore isn’t it? For the last few incidents, the local press could cover and follow up for a few days. But what about this time?
I can’t help smelling something fishy. Is it a media block out? If it is, I think it is a very successful one. If I didn’t visit blogs, Ping.sg and forums last night, I didn’t even know that something happened at Yishun MRT.
The sources that I got the info:
Something happened at Yishun MRT is it? – EDMW, the guys there are fast, and resourceful
Yishun MRT this morning – man jumped – Sammyboy
A eye witness’ blog – I suggest you guys copy her words out and paste them on notepad to read. There are just so freaking small to read!
Another eye witness’ input – In Mandarin
Will this post get myself into trouble?
Edited: another eye witness’ blog entry, very detailed. He too has the same question as I have.
