In this age of social media where we are at liberty to share content freely, it becomes even more important to verify your sources.

This report highlights an example of how many of alternative’ local media sites latched onto a supposed sighting of a PAP flyer being distributed in Singapore Institute of Management (SIM) when in actual it was a free campus magazine. Sharing such misinformation freely without first verifying not only threatens your own credibility, but the act spreads a lie that very unfortunately damages the reputation of others.
