It was only yesterday I blogged about the emerging new political order that is taking on globalisation.
Within the post was my inference that a lack of independent analytical depth among its correspondents was making The Straits Times rely on external subject matter experts for thought leadership pieces.
Even when they do, it is riddled with opinions of experts.
As if to reaffirm my stance, the newspaper carried a news analysis today on why the U.S. and Japan need each other. Forget the stereotype inherent in it, the piece is a summary of what experts think about the subject.
That brings up the question: “Do newspapers and magazines need in-house Journalists?”
