"When the Singapore media is ranked internationally, in an index of press freedom, it is ranked about 148th in the world, close to Iraq. Is this a fair portrayal of where our media stand in the world? Sadly, it is not.

These closed minds believe that there is total freedom, including press freedom, in the West, and no freedom at all in places like China. This view is wrong. Let me explain this by giving you some examples."
