Think PM’s slip is just a harmless mistake? Think again.

“Go to Prime Minister’s Office website, click on the National Day Rally Speeches and you will see that you can no longer access the ND rally speech. (http://www.pmo.gov.sg/).
Compare the Asiaone’s ND Rally speech transcript, with the CNA report, you will notice that the sentence where LHL referred to the “Bak Chor Mee and Mee Siam Mai Hum” phrase is no longer there. (http://www.asiaone.com.sg/a1news/20060820_story1_8.html)
The coverup has begun and hail to the Great Internet, we can now see that LHL quote: ‘They have to adapt but they have to remain objective, maintain a high quality newspaper and if you read something in The Straits Times or on CNA, you must know that it is real. It is quite different from reading this, say, on Talkingcock.com,’ is flawed. SPH and CNA have both “distorted” the facts. ”
Update: The mee siam mai hum comment was also edited out of the repeat telecast on TV.
If this slipup is just an insignificant mistake, why is the media censoring it and editing it? …more (forum thread started by leeroy77 @ Sammyboy’s Alfresco Shop)
