Why Malaysia print media should be afraid, very afraid…

Because Malaysiakini is now the No. 1 News site in Malaysia according to Alexa.
“Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.”
Thomas Jefferson (via NYTimes)
But you may say the figure is not accurate. Never mind…………. how about my housekeeper telling me, “Malaysiakini story is more reliable. The Star news are all ‘hou siao’ (horse shoe crab sperm aka bullshit). She told me her sons who are in universities all read Malaysiakini only. They don’t buy The Star anymore.
Be afraid, be very afraid.
Syabas, Malaysiakini. I don’t subscribe to it yet, eventhough the editor got his staff to help me get the subscription fee payment arranged. I will wait till they accept Paypal ‘cos I am lazy to pay through the bank and I don’t trust them with my credit card. Until then, I can read the Bahasa Malaysia version for free. Improve my BM and I get to read more juicy stories.
And for local advertisers, remember that the best advertising medium is the internet. Your advertisements stay online for a long time if you get one of us bloggers to write the advertorial through Nuffnang. I can gerenti, or your money back. Read my make money blog for more information.
