Default Singapore new law re fake news

The government is now committing fraud!!

[One offending item was a Facebook post by an opposition politician that questioned the governance of the city-state's sovereign wealth funds and some of their investment decisions. The other post was published by an Australia-based blog that claimed police had arrested a "whistleblower" who "exposed" a political candidate's religious affiliations.
In both cases, Singapore officials ordered the accused to include the government's rebuttal at the top of their posts. The government announcements were accompanied by screenshots of the original posts with the word "FALSE" stamped in giant letters across them.]

If this continues then Singapore will be a 1984 nightmare state.
Stop it now.

Default Re: Singapore new law re fake news

That's always the slippery slope when you start telling people what they can print and say.

It's the dilemma with facebook and other social media sites as well these days and I am not sure US regulators have the perfect answer either yet.
