Monitoring Media Bias in Malaysia

Tessa Houghton shares the findings of a study which monitored media bias in Malaysia during the 13th General Elections a few months ago:

Malaysian citizens who relied on English and Bahasa Malaysia newspapers and/or television as their media source/s during the GE13 campaign were not provided with fair and accurate information with which to construct informed voting preferences, with clear voting patterns emerging along these strata of info-communicative diversity and scarcity, and the media used more as a tool of division than of reconciliation.
