The Republic of Singapore is forbidding political podcasts during their elections. What kind of elections are those?
To quote the primary source:
As a measure against the use of new Internet technologies during hustings in Singapore, Channel NewsAsia reported from a Parliamentary hearing on Monday that “Podcasting is not allowed during elections.”
Not allowing any kind of expression is contrary to the ideals of Democracy. It’s also strange that a government is in touch enough with cutting edge web 2.0 technology like blogging and podcasting to ban it, rather than encourage and foster its growth a medium for political discussion.
