Lim Swee Say: Clarifying as a strategy to be understood
LSS clarifies a CNA report which "misquoted" him on Sunday.
I wasn't interested in this story until this clumsy communicator clarifies. This is really funny because the clarification and the original misquote were basically the same message. So what's there to clarify except that readers have misunderstood LSS and he felt the need to say it again. You can't blame us so you blame CNA? So he repeats himself under the guise of "clarifying" begging for a chance to be understood.
The problem with LSS and some of his colleagues is that they have now been stuck with the reputation for talking stupid. Prima facie there are enough readers and listeners who were just mistakenly tuning in to what inanity is coming from him eh to make him worry.
Cut the chap some slack, politicians especially to the north and south and nearly everywhere are far more stupid.
