Insights into the Singapore New Media: Developing the Mothership.sg Sensibility in the Era of Fake News

What are the ways to creating fun, insightful and credible online content in Singapore? We now live in an age where information, views and ideas flow more freely than ever before, because anyone with a connection to the Internet can be part of it and contribute to it.
In the era of "fake news", Mothership believes strongly in fostering curiosity and humour. Curiosity calls for the need for openness and understanding. Humour invites one to see old things in a new light. One can rarely delete and idea or a bad idea completely, and the ideal response should be an opposing idea or a more attractive belief.


Mr Martino Tan (Public Policy '09), Deputy Managing Director and Managing Editor, Mothership.sg.

Mr Martino Tan is the Managing Editor of Mothership. He co-founded Mothership.sg in 2013, which went on to become one of the fastest rising news and lifestyle site in Singapore. Mothership.sg attracts a monthly viewership of 10 million.
