The Week in Review Part 1: Watching The Watchdogs
Tessa Houghton, Nottingham University Malaysia | Cherian George, Nanyang Technological University
Our roundup of weekly media news leads with the open letter by Peter John Jaban, a presenter with Radio Free Sarawak, who explains
his abduction. Published in Malaysiakini, Jaban answers several questions that many are asking: why did he not let anyone know where he was for three days, and if he in fact staged his own ‘abduction’. We also hear from Tessa Houghton of Nottingham University Malaysia whose school is collaborating with the Center For Independent Journalism on a media-monitoring project.
