Govts must 'act fast to stop online rumours'
What's the truth? Governments claim they know what truth is. In that sense we don't need the courts, the religious leaders and NGOs isn't it?
What about inconvenient truths? What about bad or inadequate answers to good and probing questions?
Be vigilant but also there is no need to worry too much. The online zeitgeist would not be decided in our space, which the government is also a price taker.
Looks like Teo Chee Hean went to China to learn how the government might control the Internet better. Good luck. Nobody understands this landscape enough to do that. They will try and end up learning the hard way.
