What a Tangled Web they Wove
The anti-The Online Citizen movement is again trying to gain momentum. Accusations that they are actually Establishment-sanctioned bloggers were thrown about before but now the web is more tangled with the latest revelation that at least one TOC blogger is actually paid by the MIW to write. Is there smoke without fire? Last year, the MIW had a so-called “leak” that they were mounting a counter-insurgency in the Internet to win hearts and minds. For us bloggers, it has become harder to separate fact from fiction with MIW, WP and SDP fans hurling accusations and making insinuations at each other. I believe that this forces us to be more discerning about what we read in the Internet, just like we are by-now conditioned to sieve through what we read in the local or foreign press. This pressure to make us critical of whatever we read can only be good and the “trust nobody” principle is a sensible one.
” so the great saviour, REMY CHOO comes in to restore toc’s credibility but actually, he is the greatest con. guess what? this toc chief is paid by a pap mp out in the west of singapore to write. PAID BY PAP TO WRITE. and paid quite well so its said. with all the pay increases in gahmen, he probably got a pay rise too.”
