Official: The Star Is The Most Chiak Lat Malaysian Tabloid

TIAW KANG v.,n. "jump river"

Due to popular demands (and my lack of discipline), I am going to have to prematurely end this short break from slamming The Star. I could not resist it. How could you when they keep printing this kind of headline...

Official: Proton car prices may be reduced
Was that a deliberate typo? What was the official news? If that is an official confirmation, why use the word may?

Official: Bush may be dyslexic
Official: The Star may be a government agent

Can you spot the error? Am I being over-pedantic?

Bei tahan. Sisuahlai.

Extra:

If a you want a luxury car that badly, and cannot afford it despite the price drop, Sisuahlai's friendly mechanic, Ah Seng, can help you...

The "official" part COULD be an error; but, IMHO, I think it means they're quoting the official--in this case, the Managing Director. Not necessarily that it's confirmed news.
