TODAY's first & last word on Mr Brown's Case.
It's surreal ... The way this article on Mr Brown's saga appears one week late in TODAY, recites the facts in highly condensed fashion and diligently avoids any semblance of an opinion ... as if the TODAY editors themselves were not at the very heart of the story.
If I didn't tell you that this is a TODAY article, you might have thought that it was from some other newspaper that was clueless in its reporting, unable to uncover any real facts and just cutting and pasting from already-existing reports about ex-TODAY columnist Mr Brown.
This is the nation-building press that Ms K Bhavani wants you to trust. The same press that Ms Bhavani says is supposed to provide "opinions with higher standards" and "constructive criticism".
We're in the Matrix. Any moment now, Lee Kuan Yew will materialise out of thin air and accuse Mr Brown of being a member of the bak-chor-mee-loving radical English-educated young.
Run fast, Mr Brown, run, head for the nearest telephone.
