“Social media is rife with chatter about this incident which threatens to ostracise Singapore even further from its ASEAN neighbours. And isn’t it amazing that the State Media chooses to remain mum over this incident. You will agree that any reputable news media would have reported the incident in detail by now”, Lim Tean added.

In his post, Lim Tean seemed to equate a lack of reporting on the incident with fake news. He also made no attempt to name the organisation he repeatedly referred to as “state media”, although he did refer to it as “our 151st ranked State Media”.

According to the latest Reporters Without Borders (RSF) press freedom index released on April 18, Singapore was ranked 151st, a position it has held since 2017.

Towards the end of his post, Lim Tean clarified his accusations and wrote, “This is tantamount to Fake News! A media that conscientiously does not report and cover relevant news is as guilty of creating fake news as a person who deliberately spreads falsehoods!”/TISG
