Centre of Independent Journalism (CIJ) publishes Malaysian Media Landscape: A Snapshot of 2021

Centre of Independent Journalism (CIJ) is a non-profit organisation that aspires for a society that is democratic, just and free where all people will enjoy free media and the freedom to express, seek, and impart information. CIJ has developed a brief detailing the state of the Malaysian media in 2021 recently, in conjunction with the World Press Freedom Day 2022.

Titled 'Malaysian Media Landscape: A Snapshot of 2021', the 22-page brief is divided into four sections which are:
Media Landscape Overview that incorporates the impacts of political changes, economic situation, COVID-19, misinformation and media plurality on the media landscape
Fundamental Protection of Media and Infrastructure that touches on the media state under attack, protections during protests and covering events, and public incentives for media pluralism
Social Inclusiveness that encapsulates refugee and migrant reporting, suicide reporting, and gender reporting
Recommendations to the State that proposes guaranteeing equal access to all media, putting repressive laws against the media to an end, setting up the Malaysian Media Council (MMC) and establishing a media resilience fund.

Full report can be retrieved from CIJ's official website.
