Living Life At The Edge Covering 1MDB

Living Life At The Edge Covering 1MDB

The Edge was one of the early trailblazers into the 1MDB investigation in terms of media coverage.

Ho Kay Tat revealed how The Edge team first caught wind of this big story and what triggered the media group to pursue it relentlessly - despite having been shut down by the BN government for close to 3 months in 2015 due to its 1MDB reporting.

Was there a time when they had wanted to throw in the towel?

We asked him this.

We also discussed the media landscape in the New Malaysia that we are in.

The government wants to limit political parties from holding stakes in media groups to free the media from political interference.

Does Kay Tat agree?

Listen in.
