AMM feels that when people engage bloggers “non-professionals” to contribute to websites, they have to be extremely careful. Especially when its websites like yahoo.sg.
The bloggers engaged has to be credible people who has a track record of good writing skills and people who are “professional” experience in their fields. For example, some being trained journalists or editors of “credible” websites.
Why is AMM ranting about this? AMM is not sure for those who read that article about the fake monks on yahoo.sg fit to post, but that whole article was based on what was written in The New Paper and the author seemed to only paraphrase the whole thing!
AMM calls that regurgitating as opposed to reporting. Further more, just taking a picture of the TNP just doesnt cut it!
AMM doesnt have much beef with the most of the other contributors as AMM can understand why they were chosen/asked to be contributors.
