Censorship brings struggle?

The politics of Singapore’s new media in 2006 is explained more than adequately by blogger The Online Citizen:

The year 2006 was a landmark year for the new media and citizen journalism in Singapore. The government’s “light touch” approach to regulating the Internet was probably one of the factors that emboldened many Singaporeans to step up and push the political boundaries through their blogs, podcasts (online sound clips) and vodcasts (online video clips).… 

Ironically, even though a country like Australia has no real government restriction on political campaigning, Singapore’s advances in online development in 2006 leaves our country for dead.
