Top General FAQ
With the recent lawsuit against Malaysiakini, how does it affect me?
Malaysiakini provides the space for readers to speak up on matters that they consider important to their lives. However, we do not allow statements that are racist, sexist or statements that are not relevant to current affairs and democracy in Malaysia.
We believe that readers should have the right to voice their opinions, especially when it comes to matters that affect them.
Malaysiakini is not partisan to any political party. Our readers often speak up on governance, both at the federal level and the state level. There have been many readers comment that have questioned the actions of the PR Selangor, Penang and Kelantan govts, just as there have been comments on the BN state and federal comments.
Studies have showed Malaysiakini to be one of the least biased media in Malaysia.
Despite the suites, Malaysiakini will continue to report without fear or favour. This is the norm in developed, free societies and we believe that this is what is required for the country to progress. Malaysia, as a country needs independent media.
We understand that some advertisers will may feel awkward about advertising in Malaysiakini. On the other hand, citizens, especially Internet users, often applaud far sighted brands, brands that do the right thing. We also do not believe that any advertiser will lose from advertising on Malaysiakini, and they have all to gain to reach out to some of the most influential Malaysians, reading Malaysia’s most influential news media.
