Editor Says Ep 6: As the media goes, so goes democracy 3:28 mins Synopsis: Every Friday afternoon, senior editors from The Straits Times give their take on the top news of the week, why it matters and what’s next. The Straits Times editor Warren Fernandez says democracy depends on voters to be active, engaged and informed on major issues to make their own decisions. He adds that this should not be outsourced to Big Tech companies - it is the public service mission of trusted media.
