Creative Journalism: “Banks sound” or “Life Savings Gone?”

Thursday, October 16th, 2008

I like today’s Straits Times front page a lot. Somebody at ST is probably pissed about how the PAP is saying one thing about the banks: “Banks sound, system working well says Tharman”, while thousands of retirees might lose all of their life-savings due to possible mis-selling of minibond products by these same banks: $100,000 Life Savings GONE.

If you want to say something, but can’t say it outright, this is one creative way of doing so. Or maybe it wasn’t intended. Who knows.
