BERTHA HENSON: MDA'S MOVE AGAINST TRS IS A LEGAL MESS

I was a little puzzled by the Media Development Authority’s order to The Real Singapore to shut down. Not that I would miss TRS. I am puzzled at the way the law and media regulations look like a badly sewn patchwork. The kindest thing I can say about the G’s move is that it is still wondering how to handle the wacky online world.

IS SINGAPORE’S HEALTH POLICY BENEVOLENT OR TYRANNY

Singapore’s healthcare system has gained an international reputation for impeccable standards, with state-of-the-art medical facilities. It is also readily accessible and affordable, thanks to a well-planned and integrated healthcare structure. More than 400,000 people come to Singapore each year for medical treatment.

ALJUNIED RESIDENT CONCERNED WITH MND'S PUNITIVE WITHHOLDING OF GRANTS

As a resident of Aljunied - I am curious. Does this mean that the AHPETC's cashflow problems started because of the Ministry's withholding of the grants in the first place - even whilst the process of the audit team was on-going and not completed yet?

SINGAPORE ONCE HAD A FREE & VIBRANT PRESS

It wasn’t always this way. The media in Singapore wasn’t always state-controlled. We didn’t always have the Newspaper and Printing Presses Act (NPPA). Our newspapers were not always run by a behemoth, monopolistic publisher whose key senior appointments are government-approved people and the biggest stakeholders are government-linked.

GILBERT GOH: SHOULD WE HAVE A PROTEST AGAINST INTERNET DICTATORSHIP?

Maybe really need to hold another protest soon against internet control and dictatorship. There have been a series of law suits and arrests against dissidents lately and it is both disturbing and unsettling. This is a worrying trend and put us back to the fearful intimidating climate of the 1970s period whereby dissidents were hunted down savagely.

ROY NGERNG: MDA IS A HYPOCRITE FOR SHUTTING DOWN TRS

The MDA’s actions of shutting down The Real Singapore has been seen as hypocritical by many Singaporeans, who feel that there are also other websites, such as the above-mentioned ones, which have been conducting their misdeeds but have been allowed to continue to operate. This has given rise to the perception that the People’s Action Party (PAP)-run government is intentionally persecuting The Real Singapore because it is the top “alternative” news website and which has been on the forefront of exposing the misdeeds of the PAP, and that the PAP wants to shut down The Real Singapore to stop it from doing so.
