Farah Marshita Abdul Patah, Vice President, National Union of Journalists (NUJ) | Radzi Razak, Spokesperson, Gerakan Media Merdeka (GeraMM)

Meanwhile, journalists and media staff are bearing the brunt of the shrinking industry, with thousands of jobs lost over the last six months. We speak to representatives of the NUJ and GeraMM on how journalists are coping with the changing landscape and whether the media industry can be revamped for the better.
