Days later, Mr Brown, a family man with three young children, was suspended from his job as a columnist for TODAY.
In my opinion, this reflects the frightening climate of fear under which media professionals in Singapore have to work.
Mr Wang will be forwarding this post to Reporters Without Borders to notify them of these unfortunate events. You can write to them too.
Side note - Mr Brown also created a humorous, popular and immensely well-circulated podcast entitled "Bak Chor Mee" two months ago. This podcast satirised a certain political event during the 2006 General Elections and placed the ruling party in a less-than-positive light. The podcast received direct attention and public commentary from the Minister for Information, Communication & The Arts. More details here.
