Malay Mail Chief: All Media is Biased

The prevailing narrative today is that the news media is in trouble. This is fuelled by the disrupted business model, the rise of “fake news” as well as some people claiming that there are media who are no longer balanced but are used as a tool by governments or owners to their own benefit.

What's a media veteran's take on that? We speak to Datuk Wong Sai Wan, Editor-in-Chief of Malay Mail, to get his views on this. He is also the COO for the media business of Ancom Bhd. Wong, over three decades of experience in hand, also shares his insights on the sector that has been disrupted.

We also talk about Malay Mail -- one of the oldest printed English daily in the Klang Valley at 121 years old. During its peak, the Malaymail printed 60,000 copies in the mid-1980s. Today, the numbers are down and the paper is lossmaking.

Can Malay Mail find back their glory days?

Wong gets frank about this and shares his plans for the paper moving forward in the midst of a challenging landscape.
