Straits Times made a boo-boo regarding Mr SR Nathan


This is not the first time The Straits Times has made a boo-boo with regards to wrong information being printed. This time it was on the death of Mr SR Nathan, the 6th President of Singapore, who passed away a few days back. In the paper, the reporter Chong Zi Liang erroneously attributed the fact that Mr Nathan was the first elected president. That is simply not true. The first elected president of Singapore was in fact Mr Ong Teng Cheong

I do not blame Chong Zi Liang wholly for this mistake. People make mistakes. The proofreaders and copywriters need to be blamed as well. In any case, the Straits Times apologised for the error so all is good
