Singapore has fallen to 160th in the press freedom ranking

Singapore dropped to the bottom 20 (2021). Alamak!

In Singapore journalists are not physically tortured or killed. They are either charged for criminal offences or sued or pofmaed. Then there are those who simply regurgitate what the governments wants them to do. These journalists pushed us to the bottom 20. What to do? Survival is more important that speaking truth to power.

    A) Journalist,

    You don’t need the papers anymore. Are the rankings even a concern?

    Wouldn’t it be counter-productive for government? You call the editors and they feel the implied threat. And our sort of editors eventually self-censor for organisation and basically self survival. Discerning people (and such are those that we should count on for real national progress, etc.) can’t depend on official media for crucial info, and here government disallows alternatives. We don’t listen to Fox News but we have CNN and others. Here there is none other. So the consequence is government loses any means to communicate. Of course, there are the “loyal” believers but these are not those government needs to convince, surely?

    @ Teo Soh Lung

    The SINKaPOOR media ranking has dropped from around 148 to the current 160…………..over the years.

    Apart from your RANTING, what have you and the likes of Thun Ping Tjin etc done over these years as RSF continued to downgrade SINKaPOORs media ranking? NOTHING …………..nothing achieved, even as the ranking had been sliding.

    According to report: >>>>The index by Reporters Without Borders (RSF) …. assessment of the press freedom …. based on …. media independence, legislative framework, abuses against the media/reporters, infrastructure, and more. <<

    Yes “more” includes the emperor without clothes regime ability to prevent my ability to email to certain parties pertaining to the travesties of justice inflicted on me……….more than what RSF and the so-called oppos even think about, including the wayanging by the wayang-party MPs especially the so-called Leader of the Opposition, Pritam Singh, who is the Sec-General of the wayang-party.

    Please stop your PATHETIC ranting and carry out more constructive and concrete actions.

    It is very unfortunate that Spore mainstream media have conformists rather than journalists. Journalists normally hunt/risk for news whereas conformists just wait for news to arrive on their plates! No wonder freedom of press ranking for Spore kept dropping to now 160th!! Again no news on this because only top ranking news are news in Spore.

    I can vividly recalled 3 incidents which portrayed such reflections viz:
    1) during the escape of Mat Selamat the whole vicinity near Whitley was literally flooded with police & “red cars” but nothing was announced of this embarrassment until very many hours later. If we have journalists this important escapade news will be instantly announced so that the public is aware of it and may help with leads to capture him. But the authorities took it as an embarrassment hoping against hope to capture him, but failed.

    2) The riot in Little India; police cars were burnt and police ran away from the scene, yet the announcer of “news” were afraid of using the word “riot” until officially sanctioned which came many hours later. Because using the word riot has plenty of implications in Spore so real riot also cannot use!

    3) Sometime during one Christmas there was a robbery in a watch shop in Raffles City; and it was not announced immediately and the robber managed to escape to BKK Thailand. However this embarrassment was “news” only after some 7 to 10 days later: the crux of the matter is, if this robber managed to sell the items fast, the buyer/s may not know about such stolen property status because there was no news about it! Unwittingly, the buyer/s were caught with buying stolen properties without knowing because of “no news about the robbery’??!

  • Bad news:

    In a democratic society, no news is good news. And good news is really good news.

    In a rated black-zone country, no news is news. And good news may not be good news.

    The freedom of speech is very important. Without free speech, One cannot listen to alternative voices which open our mind to new perspective and solutions. One will be boxed and conform to wrong view like a deaf person. The people will be like mute, cannot narrate their painful stories to seek justices. One good example is about increase tax of the rich and businesses. Pro rich and business interest people will said increase tax will drive away business and tax burden will fall on the consumers. But is this the true? NO,it is not. In many nations, business get high tax but many business remains and accept the tax increase. About tax burden on consumer, it is false too because governments in many nations control the prices and prices increase will result in less customer. To justify tax increase on rich, the tax increase on rich can increase money collected and therefore tax decrease on poor can be reduce, giving more money to the poor and middle-class to increase poor and middle-class consumption spending. But in Singapore, the mass media will never give you the other point of view or the so-called truth. People continue to live in dark with low press freedom ranking.

  • Billy ma:

    When you decide how much to pay yourself & write your own paycheck, nothing else matters.

    And when you think everyone owe their living to you, you don’t have to give a damn to anyone.

    That’s the reality here & now.

    Those at the bottom 20 are either third world countries, communists or authoritarian regimes. It is out of place for a first world democratic country to be placed at the bottom with the rest of them.

    Everyone knows TSL is out to seek personal revenge on PAP, there is nothing about advancing the interest of Singaporeans./

    Birds of the same feathers are flocked together? Though “democratic” in appearance, it has always been authoritarian.
