These sources have minimal bias and use very few loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes). The reporting is factual and usually sourced. These are the most credible media sources. See all Least Biased Sources.
Factual Reporting: MIXED
World Press Freedom Rank: Malaysia 144/180
Notes: Founded in 2004, Malaysia Today is a popular Malaysian news blog that is currently hosted in Singapore and the editor in chief is Raja Petra Kamarudin who resides in England. Malaysia Today is critical of the governing Barisan Nasional coalition and the opposition party. According to Reporters without borders Malaysia ranks 144/180 on the Press Freedom Index due to the media environment in Malaysia being threatened by increasing censorship.
In review, Malaysia Today uses loaded language in their headlines and articles such as “Gerakan Contented To Be A Mosquito Party?” Malaysia Today tends to poorly source their articles such as this: “Zahid: Pakatan Needs To Resolve DAP, PPBM Problems Before Registration”, however they report international news with low bias and maintain factual reporting. Overall, we rate Malaysia Today as least biased in international reporting, but mixed factually due to poor sourcing and not providing links to their sources. Please note, this rating is based on reporting of international news only and does not take into account Malaysian political bias, as we do not fully understand their political climate. (M.
