Political podcasts and streaming video feeds will be banned during
Singapores next general election, a government minister said Monday.


"In a free-for-all Internet environment, where there are no rules,
political debates could easily degenerate into an unhealthy, unreliable
and dangerous discourse flush with rumors and distortions to mislead and
confuse the public."

Oh, and politicians do what?
