Do you trust the news on TV
This is the media
How to put out a line of bull and let it fly for 24 hours
Even here in Singapore, all media (TV, Radio and Newsprint including the majority of magazines) are under Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) and follows guidelines set by Media Development Authority (MDA), a government entity. There are no actors/actresses in Singapore. All are just paid employees or contractors of SPH.
SPH itself is staff by members of the Internal Security Department (ISD).
Strangely the script is the same worldwide.
- Spin the news to fit the government views
- Frighten th population.
- Warning of disharmony (racial or otherwise).
