Stomp causes S’pore-Burmese bilateral relations to sour

Stomp causes S’pore-Burmese bilateral relations to sour

SPH-owned website causing trouble by stirring hatred in society.



Singapore Press Holdings’ Stomp — a nincompoop website that promotes voyeurism — has caused bilateral relations between Singapore and Burma to sour.

This after Stomp published a photo of an NSF drinking water on the MRT submitted by an anonymous coward going by the name of Hopmingu, while questioning if it is appropriate for a human being to be thirsty.

Singaporeans, then became angry with Stomp for being such an idiot, and then hunted down the anonymous coward who submitted the photo.

They identified some Burmese guy as the anonymous Stomper and then went on a rampage and belittled everything Burmese — from their junta to their dictatorship.

However, it turned out, they identified the wrong person.

Sah La Leow, a Singaporean, said the wrong identification has caused Singapore and Burmese bilateral relations to sour and there is only one way to rectify it: “We need to find out who the anonymous Stomp editor is and let him receive the same treatment the Burmese guy received.”

Patrick Daniel, had to clean up the crap after STOMP fabricated a story about MRT train doors in June 2012.

Hey Pat,

How’s it going? Hope you’re not overwhelmed this by-election. I know it can be hard churning out one piece of good news after another about the PAP day in, day out.

But let me get straight to the point: I don’t know if you know, but STOMP was caught putting out fake news. Again.

Just yesterday, after nomination day proceedings on Jan. 16 ended, STOMP stole a fake news piece from New Nation, the third-most overrated site in Singapore that happens to specialise in fiction.

I mean, stealing stuff from New Nation is fine, because we are magnanimous that way. And we take it as a compliment.

However, stealing from New Nation is not fine when your folks at STOMP just take it without exercising any part of their brain and tried to pass it off as the real deal.

Yes, I know. It is one thing to read The Straits Times and take it at face value.

But it is quite another to read fiction and think that it is real.

Look, barely six months ago, one of STOMP’s staffers, or “content producers”, as they are affectionately called, messed up big time when she fabricated a story about MRT train doors opening when the train was in operation.

And everyone would have expected the protocol to submit only real news to be fine-tuned to prevent another major gaffe.

Surely, one year isn’t too long a period of time to go without screwing up again, right?

Ok, I must admit, the overall quality of The Straits Times is still pretty good.

The paper is still thick and absorbent, and therefore, my windows still shine as a result.

So, I’m not complaining.

But I’m highlighting this issue to your BFF Bertha Hanson anyway. She owns this awesome blog where she writes whatever’s on her mind and takes apart your newspapers daily.

I don’t expect her to write about this issue. But I just hope it can make her chuckle.

And maybe remember why she left SPH.

Are STOMP administrators retarded? Or North Korean?

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s about time this had to happen!

Singapore Press Holdings-owned STOMP, that nincompoop website that promotes voyeurism, tries to pass off New Nation‘s 50% real news as the truth!

Check out this screen shot of STOMP‘s article:

This piece is stolen from New Nation without even giving any credit! (Is Alex Tan working at STOMP now?)

Check out the original article here.

Therefore, we can only conclude, STOMP is run by North Koreans.

Maybe we should email Warren Fernandez about this?

By the way, anyone remembers Samantha Ann Francis? Didn’t STOMP get into trouble last year for writing fake news?

Update at 4.23 p.m.: STOMP officially takes down fake article after a lapse of 120 minutes. EPIC WIN FOR NEW NATION!
