Update (02/01/07): For complete links to all stories, read this latest entry
Update 3:26pm: To the blogger who has yet to take down the pictures, I think you should have gotten the authencity of the request through phone by now. The possibility of legal action was relayed by her friend. And no, I have not changed my direction. If you had read the first entry properly you would know that.
Update: Thanks to the reader who informed me about some screenshot issue. It has been fixed.
I will no longer be giving out any more information about tammy to any mainstream journalists after my encounter with LianHe ZaoBao Senior Reporter Tang Hai Guo. Tammy would also not entertain any mainstream journalists.
I am lost for words. I am utterly disappointed with the mainstream media. I will just let the screenshots do the talking.
This is my follow-up email to Straits Time Journalist Sharifa Maria Almenoar yesterday.
This is part of my conversation with tammy's friend.
This is the LATEST reply I received from the Straits Times Journalist (It came in while I was updating this site).
And this is my reply.
This is an overview of my email exchange with LianHe ZaoBao senior reporter Tang Hai Guo.
The LianHe ZaoBao reporter asked me for the contact of tammy. I shared a quote with the reporter to highlight the fact that it was NYP's Examinations Period and it will be an inappropriate time to contact the victim. I SPECIFICALLY told the reporter not to use the quote. I told him it was privileged information. What did the reporter do??? He betrayed my trust. He had little clues and used whatever little information that he could get his hands on, even when I told him the information was confidential. He abandoned me after he thought his colleague found the victim's contact. Well guess what? They got the wrong contact because as far as I know, tammy has not been contacted by any mainstream journalists. Trust a senior reporter to make such a silly mistake!
I told the reporter to include a link back to my site so that I can clarify any misquotes or any errors in his reporting. He told me that his boss said the paper can't mention any blog link in the story (what a convenient excuse!) And guess what they did? They included a screenshot of the blog site that Straits Times originally used in yesterday's article (Read this for context) with a picture of tammy and the url of the blog.
I have read the report and I must say its filled with inaccuracies. One example (I will translate here since the paper is in chinese) is that "the incident happened somewhere in the school and that is why the school authorities may be thinking of expelling her".
I have asked the featured blog to take down tammy's pictures on her behalf. However, the blog has chosen to upload new pictures instead. This is my warning to the blog owner: You are playing with fire! Even the site that hosted the video (which the featured blog linked to) has taken it down after the request from tammy. I am asking you one more time to take down all the victim's pictures. If you don't, and tammy decides to take any action against you, don't say you have not been warned.
