Religion, politics and the media
Politics is news and news is politics, for most people. But when there is an unusual and prominent coverage of news linked to religion and politics, the general election is not far away, said a veteran journalist to me recently. So we may not find the whole news, the truth, in our media. So we turn to God to help us find the truth. But politicians seem to be doing the same, according to news reports.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
