The associate dean for Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, economist Donald Low, slammed state media Straits Times for publishing fake news about his resignation. Donald Low stated that he told the reporter that he resigned because of an internal issue he does not want to talk about, the state media reporter then reported that he had an “internal issue” with the school instead.

The fake news by Straits Times resulted in many speculating that Donald Low was fired for criticising the Singapore government in recent months.

Singapore’s state media is ranked 151st in the world for credibility.
