報章會成夕陽工業嗎?

拉惹布特拉:報章成為夕陽工業

在馬來西亞,如果政府不放鬆言論管制,傳媒老闆繼續福佳,報章確會很快走向夕陽,沒人會付出真金白銀去看政黨宣傳稿。在馬來西亞,幾份網絡報章有收入來源,而部落客會當選國會議員,掌控政黨文宣策略。

香港會否走這條路,很視乎近日新聞界有沒有反省。

由西藏事變的報導,以至中國奧運火炬傳送的報導可以看出,香港傳媒可以為了所謂民族主義,選擇性報導一些事,既然如此為何還買報紙,不如看部落客好過。當讀者發現被愚弄時,就會拋棄主流媒體,投向網絡媒體懷抱。

作為一個出身主流媒體的部落客,我的看法是,各大報章老闆們,好自為之。

  1. 香港社會上下跑步奔向一國一制,傳媒的論調與中央電視臺,人民日報所差無幾。中共説東,香港不敢說西,還要做拉拉隊呢。

    所以有知識又思考力懂英文的,都不看本地傳媒,改投部落或西方媒體去。

    但香港傳媒還是有龐大擁躉,不愁執粒,因為香港報章有很多吃喝玩樂的資訊,新聞版又公仔多過字,國際大事娛樂化地報導,迎合本地讀者水準。他們沒有被傳媒愚弄的感覺,因為要有思考力才會警覺的。

  3. As a Malaysian living in HK, allow me to give you guys some insight on the situation there.

    As far as I know, most Malaysians now don’t give a damn about these mainstream media anymore, since they all need a government license to operate, and the ones giving government license are the National Front government. Any report against them and that’ll be the end of your license.

    Malaysians nowaday mostly read blogs and independent news websites, like these two:

    http://www.malaysia-today.net/2008/

    http://www.malaysiakini.com/ (need to subscribe)

    Which give more accurate and unbiased reporting, and so far the government hasn’t touched them. Their reporting is one of the reason why the 3 opposition parties won so big in the election in March.

    The 3 opposition parties leader is none other than Anwar Ibrahim, former Deputy PM who got framed and jailed because he opposed former PM Mahathir Mohammad’s policies. Now he’s back with a vengeance, for it is him who managed to get the Islamic party PAS and the Chinese party DAP (who didn’t like each other before) to join forces with his own Justice Party PKR. He’s now highly tipped to be the next PM of Malaysia.

    If it wasn’t for some dubious election methods (like postal voting from “ghost voters” who happen to be more than 129 years old), the opposition could have easily won more than half the seats.

    It is now highly rumoured Anwar has managed to persuade some National Front MPs who are unhappy with current PM Abdullah Badawi to defect to his side, and he is waiting for the right moment to give the signal for them to switch sides so he can become PM.

    When I saw Article 23 being introduced, I quickly see the similarities between that and Malaysia’s ISA (Internal Security Act). I feel very ironic how Malaysia is on the way to getting the chance to getting rid of ISA, while HK is on the other way of self-censorship.
