Streats: No media ban, but…

GE 2001

SINCE Nomination Day, the Workers’ Party has shunned media attention.

No press conferences. No alerts about walkabouts. Only “no comment” when WP candidates are approached at rallies.

Is there a blanket ban on the media?

“Not that we know of,” said council member James Gomez at a party rally last night at Nee Soon East.

“We have not talked to the media because we have nothing to say to them.

“The media has been trying to fish for information. And when they can’t get a reply, they are quick to show their frustrations.” Mr Gomez also attacked the standard of journalism in Singapore.

“The quality of analysis of so-called senior journalists, reporters and correspondents remains to be seen.”- Adam Hashidy
