The self-pwning Straits Times and TODAY letters sections?

Update: I changed the title of the post because Tessa Wong of ST has a point

Update 2: Apparently, Mr Chua says it was the one letter he sent to both papers, and the ORIGINAL is the TODAY one (via @kitsune_shoujo).

Update 3 (sigh): So Mr Chua apologizes on the same thread for accusing ST Forum editor of “twisting” his letter. He really wrote two different letters.

Let the mudslinging begin, says newly minted Minister at Large for Twitter, mrbrown.

And thanks to the speed at which people can react to and consume things online, we’re no longer at the mercy of what our Minister for Information Communication and the Arts calls a “trusted” source of information.

Chua Shen Yong wrote letters to both Straits Times and TODAY, and I’ll leave it to you to decide what happened:

ST Forum: Towards a native democracy
TODAY Voices: A young first-time voter’s view of the General Election

Is the writer schizo? If not, who edited what and what were their motives?
