Below is an intriguing email that was initially sent to The Real
Singapore, but eventually found its way to the Singapore Hall of
Shame (SHS). It details the shocking failure of both the mainstream
media and the new media to conduct basic story research and fact

Your CSI articles against
ST reporter Miss Maria Almenoar are epic!
Standards of msm reporting is really in the dumpster and we need
people like you who can show the world why they are the
154thmedia. I was thinking of doing my own csi on ST
reporter Tessa Wong but I think I wont have the same impact as
Being a typical sham new age
religions, Worldmate is a derivative of Buddhism that conducts
secret rituals and sells cheap trinkets passing off as religious
tokens. Under the cover of charity and welfare, Worldmate extends
its influence and cash pool across the world. As they expand into
new countries, its devotees increase and so too does their cash
purse. I get this information from a 2003 court case involving
Worldmate, Dr Harushia Handa and Tojusha Publishing inc (www.wmdata.main.jp/saiban.html).

wong will give me the time of day. I hope this information is
useful for you bro.
The questionable character of Dr Handa is shocking and warrants
deeper inspection. SHS intends to take this up with SMU and

this information is easily verified, and can be surfaced through a
few quick online searches. It thus makes you wonder how everyone
could have missed this?
For instance, when TOC first broke
the news on the premature closing of the Handa centre, some of this
information on Dr Handa was posted on The Online Citizen’s (TOC)
Facebook page but was it went unnoticed by the public.
The most disappointing of all was The Real Singapore (TRS). Pre-
occupied with stealing articles from the MSM and other blogs, TRS
could not recognise a real scoop that landed on its lap. From our
checks with the whistleblower, TRS did not even acknowledge his
email. In fact, TRS was not the only socio-political blog to ignore
Not being the first choice amongst
the local websites was ego bruising but understandable since I just
started not so long ago. Nonetheless, it has become a real gain for
SHS as I find it news worthy.
