Update: they got Miyagi's URL wrong again, in his Sunday Times interview. It was listed as myveryownblog, hahaha! He is fated to get his URL misspelled in the press, I tell ya.
And the piece on the Blogger Conference and Tomorrow.sg became some Forever Friends thing, and they even quoted my remarks selectively. Brilliant. Hey, where was my condom fasteners remark? Why kena censored? The eyes of Sunday Times readers will become blind from reading the words "condom fasteners" ah?
What I said:
By reading my blog, my friends now know I have an unhealthy interest in condom fasteners, a low alcohol threshold and like to go cheap beer gardens for late night drinks. And they believe everything I write, because they know, I don't make anything up on my blog. So now I have no friends.
What they printed:
By reading my blog, my friends now know I have a low alcohol threshold and like to go to cheap beer gardens for late night drinks.
And they left out all the funny James remarks too. Maybe they didn't "see the code".
And what's up with this bloggers = online diarists crap? Please lah, this is the freakin' 21st century. Get with the program. I am not a freakin' diarist. As someone who commented on Daily Pundit's excellent post on this matter said:
"Anyone who pushes this 'bloggers are online diarists' line is either stupid or dishonest."
Read the original interview here and compare it with the actual report when it finally came out in the papers (click on the images above).
Still, all is not lost. They said some nice things too, and even got the spelling of my name right, no caps.
Thanks to Lancerlord for the scan.
