Singapore fossils get worldwide attention - yet again
The fossils that work for Singapore's Media Development Authority (a.k.a. Censorship Board) managed to get world-wide negative publicity for the city-state with this news: Two women kissing in an advertisement led Singapore to fine a cable operator for breaching guidelines on sexuality in the conservative city-state. Singapore's Media Development Authority, which regulates and censors media and the arts, said on Wednesday it fined StarHub S$10,000 for airing a commercial for a song that featured "romanticised scenes" of lesbians kissing and portrayed the relationship as "acceptable".
