The transcript below is from the SBS Dateline archives.It was reported by Sarah Ferguson who is now better known as the ABC 4 Corners anchor.
The issue of Singapore's interest in Australian infrastructure interested SBS enough to air this story;ABC had a similar version which went to air later in the year on Lateline.
This story concerned the Singtel takeover of Optus ,and Singtel' s spying on its customers in the name of national security.
Today the SBS and ABC seen determined to have the internet policed, to ensure that nothing they deem offensive never gets to air.
The bleating about "online radicalization" and "white supremacists" is irrelevant. Singapore justified its surveillance on similar grounds, ie having to ensure racial and religious harmony in a multicultural country.
