Why is there so few domestic business news in our media ?

18Oct09

I have been checking the Star and New Straits Times ‘s business pages .

It appeared that the Global Financial Crisis has hit our newspapers too . There is a dire shortage of interesting domestic business news . In fact we have more foreign news compared to the Domestic News. Why ? Because the foreign news are syndicated news where all the Editors have to do is to plug it from the source . Simple .

Why is there a a lack of domestic news ? Does it means that most domestic companies especially the SME have done nothing new or interesting this past year ? Or is because the business writers have not gone out to look for interesting business news ? .

Reader like me wants to learn . We want to know how are our colleagues faring ? What and How are they doing and is there something we can learn from them ?

If nothing at all , such stories will be a source of inspiration for all of us .

I am sure the newspapers boys hear and understand us . For more details look up asia1.com under sme central where almost every day a few human stories are filed .
