Providing fair access to the media is more than just being concerned about fairness. It is also about ensuring diversity in media content so that it reflects the rich diversity that we have in our multi-ethnic, multicultural and multi-religious society. says Mustafa K Anuar.
Contrary to the myth peddled by the state, a free and responsible press is essential to the national project to help build a harmonious multi-ethnic, multicultural and multi-religious society, observes Mustafa K Anuar.
Despite the best efforts of spin doctors and ‘strategic teams’, the ‘noises’ and the scandals are extremely difficult for the regime to shut off, leading to much consternation and increasing desperation in the corridors of power, observes Zaharom Nain.
