I've ranted about how online journalism is the way to go because the broadsheets have abandoned all journalistic integrity here in Singapore but perhaps there is such a thing as going overboard.

STOMP is an example of that. Well, then again, STOMP's run by aforementioned broadsheets so I guess it's par for the course.

But it still irks me to read stuff like this drivel and realise that in giving the voice to the masses, we've given a voice to the masses...Which would not be a bad thing necessarily IF the masses were articulate and perhaps a little more educated. The problem with the masses is the simple fact that most of them are morons. And unfortunately, that means that the chatter out there is really white noise that drowns out anything of real importance.

What chance do big ideas like Justice, Equality and Right have when faced with small stories that gossip and slander?
