FB Fabrications about the PAP - more likes please...

Kudos for Mr Jason Chua who sets up the Facebook page, "Fabrications about the PAP". Total of 1,532 likes so far as per today, 17/09 1805 hrs. I'm genuinely curious how much 'likes' this Facebook page will gather.

After two divisive elections, a Facebook page has been set up by pro-establishment Singaporeans in what appears to be a first major citizen-led response to anti-government sites.

Called 'Fabrications about the PAP', the two-week-old page has garnered more than 340 'likes' so far. Its declared mission: 'To re-present the misrepresentation of information in the real light with facts.'

Among the topics it has wrestled with: whether Minister for Information, Communications and the Arts Yaacob Ibrahim's son will serve national service and whether former minister mentor Lee Kuan Yew called Islam a 'venomous' religion.

Both were among a cache of WikiLeaks cables made public a few weeks ago, and prompted swift rebuttals from Dr Yaacob and Mr Lee. The Facebook page reproduces the WikiLeaks cables and official rebuttals.

From Straits Times, "Netizens set up Facebook page to defend PAP".
