A WINNING JOURNALIST'S BACK STORY

Meet award-winning journalist Joyce Lim (above) who had her photo snapped in the Philippines covering the aftermath of a typhoon. It was one several major assignments Joyce was tasked with. Joyce was picked as the Journalist of 2013 this year at the annual awards recognising journalistic talent in the newsrooms of the English and Malay Newspaper Division of Singapore Press Holdings, which includes The Straits Times. She has a personal story to tell as well about why she decided to be a journalist. - ST Readers' ed.

CITY HARVEST CHURCH COVERAGE

I AM curious to know why there was no coverage of the ongoing City Harvest Church trial on Aug 5 and 6 print edition of The Straits Times.

ALFRED LAM CHUN YIP

THE trial of City Harvest is news and of great public interest. Why is it now being blacked out. Don't the public and readers deserve to be well informed of such an earth-trembling trial?

ST tells why it disagrees with Minister's remark over inaccuracy

LAST Friday, Acting Minister for Manpower Tan Chuan-Jin alluded to an article http://bit.ly/1hJJCi4 in his Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/TanChuanJin1. He expressed surprise that the article stated that the Filipino organisers of their independence day celebration in Singapore were being targeted. He wrote: "It was the reported 26,000 'likes' for the page that "is against the celebration of the Philippine Independence Day here" that raised my brows. As it turned out, the reporting was inaccurate. It was actually the post against the activity itself that garnered several hundred 'likes'. The page that hosted it was the one that had the twenty-over thousand likes."  **

               On Monday,  The Straits Times emailed Mr Tan to explain why ST did not concur with his remark, and stated the reasons  for the article’s publication.
