IPS: Most poltical blogs are balanced

MP Baey Yam Keng was quoted by 93.8 that he was surprised at the findings by the IPS study. I am not surprised at all. In fact, I wonder why do they even bother to study this.

Dr. Ang Peng Hwa of SIRC was also "surprised".  At least that was qualified but ST didn't explain.

I think many PAP MPs would be as surprised as Baey Yam Keng. It is just human. They will remember how they were severely criticised in blogs more vividly than anything else. After a while they only remember that.

Now the inability of our MPs to rise above this worries me. So this study was useful not so much for us but for the PAP MPs and ministers, including the PM.

Add the President too.

They all need to learn to be more thick skinned or it will impair their analysis and judgement. In other words, they all need to do much better.

  1. one thing we are taught by our parents, and in turn should teach our children is never to self-praise. The truth is out there.
