New Nation was Singapore's second major English-language newspaper, published in the 1970s and 1980s.
It adopted an evening tabloid format.
The name "New Nation" has been re-appropriated by a contemporary satirical online news website.
It advertises itself thus:
"NewNation.sg is quite obviously, a satire site. We write fake news half the time, and make an effort to write funny commentary in the other half. Our content is easy-to-read, concise, always insightful, and never boring. We cover current affairs, culture, technology, lifestyle, and weird news.
We’re always on the lookout for contributors with a wicked sense of humour. Contact us if you want to try your hand at satire.
