How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no
responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

Malaysiakini goes free from tomorrow for GE13!

"This is in keeping with the spirit of democracy, for we believe that voting is a major responsibility of every citizen," chief executive officer Premesh Chandran said today.

"Malaysians should have access to election campaign information before they vote. Indeed, citizens should make an informed decision on the government they want when they go to the ballot box."

"We are going free for two other reasons. An avalanche of advertising will hit the website during this period and it is bound to upset our subscribers.

"However, the extra revenue will help compensate for the loss in subscription revenue and support the cost of sending our journalists nationwide to cover news during this crucial period.

"Secondly, we expect Malaysiakini servers to come under attack again during the election campaign, and doing away with the subscription will ease our efforts in overcoming these attacks."
Be the first to know

Over the next few weeks, readers can expect blow-by-blow accounts of the election campaign as well as in-depth analyses on voting trends in all four languages.

"In addition, will give viewers ringside seats. We hope you will share our news and videos with your friends," Premesh said.

On election night, Malaysiakini aims to be the first to report election results in real time.

"With our journalists based at all the key constituencies and clued in on the counting process, we will let you know who will govern Malaysia after May 5," he said.
