Oh the irony.

Breakfast Network, a writing platform that is the brainchild of veteran scribe, Bertha Henson, has been served a piping hot lawyer’s letter.

This after the Singaporean website – the latest to join the online fray – published a libelous article about something to do with dodging taxis.

And exactly one week after Breakfast Network officially went pro and launched its Journalism Masterclasses.

That cost $3,000 for six hours.

Breakfast Network has since apologised. For the libel.

However, those signing up for the journalism masterclasses said they are not spooked by this libel incident.

One person interested in the class said: “If my parents can afford $3,000 for me to attend, my parents can afford to pay for any damages I cause with my writing.”

Another said: “After I go for the masterclass, I will know how to do journalism. And then I can join SPH. And leave.”

This libel incident also comes two weeks after Breakfast Network wrote that New Nation should not anyhow accuse other people.

And then now they anyhow accuse other people.

Why like that?

Irony loh.
