Yahoo Singapore needs better editing

It is good that Yahoo Singapore generates their own content and tries be a ‘newsroom’. But it is sad to see that the editing still has a long way to go. Typos, alignment problems and just simply poor reporting just doesn’t cut it. If you call yourself a newsroom, the reporting had better be of journalistic standards.

Indoo Stadium? Really? Buildings in your own country can be misspelt. I remember they had even spelt Singapore wrongly before too!


If I remember correctly, Yahoo Singapore enjoys a high rate of users accessing their portal amongst the Singaporean population who uses the internet. To make better use of those numbers and to benefit their readers, I’d like to see Yahoo Singapore make better hires to generate content. Lifestyle editors to push the boundaries of the type of content we see that can rival CNNgo.com. News editors to ensure journalistic standards of writing and reporting.
