Abstract
The English Press in Singapore has unique features in a country that functions under Authoritarian System. In the 1970s, the whole press (both English and Chinese) faced challenges and pressure from the control of the government. Tightening measures and laws were implemented, therefore the English press had to readjust the orientation and tried to cater to the need of nation-building and fostering of the spirit of being Singaporeans. The period in the 1970s was the time that both sides had the fiercest conflicts and the key stage the government began to lay down the complete and effective supervision system. A careful and thorough analysis into the English press at that time helps to reveal a more profound picture of that special phrase and paves the way to a deeper understanding between power and media.
