New media and politics on CNA

I was interviewed by Channel NewsAsia’s Zainudin Afandi for a story on the increasing importance of the new media such as blogs and the Internet as a form of political expression in Singapore.

The programme, Insight, will air on Thursday 21 Aug at 8.31pm on CNA. I’m told other interviewees include Workers’ Party chairman Sylvia Lim and Foreign Minister George Yeo. Do tune in if you’re interested.

In the meantime, do check out an article I wrote for Opinion Asia, Untangling Singapore’s web of Politics.

  1. This article is lame for several reasons:

    1. What PAP does is equivalent to the clamping down of free speech. No different from the commies in china, North Korea or other authoritarian states.

    2. No calls for the govt to stop meddling with freedom of speech.

    3. Pandering to the whims of Pay and pay masters, who are always one step behind technology (yet a sign for change). Typical Conservative article. Of course, liberals are filthy criminals, according to conservatives the likes of you.

    In a way, I don’t blame you. You want to write for CNA, gotta play by their rules.


  2. You completed various fine points there. I did a search on the matter and found a good number of people will go along with with your blog.
