Pity, Calvin

This is, I know, domestic issues. My apologies to my blogging friends, if this news is alien to you.

I just thought the least I could do, is to share my sentiments.

Cheng Cheng

Calvin Cheng is an acquaintance of mine. I even had him on my Facebook “friends” list. But not anymore. I removed him after his latest Facebook posting which insinuated that the writings or work of playwright Alfian Sa’at were such a potential threat that “the Government should watch commentators” like Alfian “closely”.

He then accused Alfian of “irresponsible rhetoric”, and likened Alfian to “domestic agitators”.

Read in context, these unsubstantiated claims and their insinuations are obvious.

Many have taken Calvin Cheng to task, and I shall not go into arguing against the points in his posting.

They are clearly pure nonsense.

What I am more interested in is Calvin Cheng’s membership in the Media Literacy Council (MLC), a government-appointed outfit which advises the Government on “research, trends and developments pertaining to the Internet and media, and appropriate policy responses.”
