Dailies make their debuts | The Myanmar Times
There are new papers and the first cheap feedbacks. The 1st of April was the date on which Myanmar journalists, or part of it, came back for a 40-year hiatus before returning for public. There are four papers that have made the dangerous transition from week to week to day operations, and more will certainly come. The number of them that will still be there in a year's timeframe will show.
Since 1974, The Voice, The Union and The Standard Time days and The Golden Fresh Land days have been the first private papers in the state. Printers and journalists of the new papers and their distribution companies say that the feedback on the paper industry is reassuring, with an increase in the number of readers on the first page.
"First edition was released last night and orders for today's edition are 50 per cent higher than yesterday," said U Kyaw Min Swe, editor-in-chief of The Voice Daily. "I ask The Union Daily and The Standard Time Daily to make as many specimens as possible available.
They' re circulating freely with finite run, so I can't deliver as many as the merchants want," said U Win Khin, a router planted in Ahlone Civic. "I' m buying daily newspapers for every K200 because I want new information about what's going on," said U Than Lwin, a salesman at Merchant Road, Yangon.
Having dailies is one of the characteristics of an open society," said U Ko Ko Ko Ko, an experienced reporter and editor of The Yangon Times Weekly, which will appear on May 5. "It' s marvellous to see the comeback of the Yangon street papers 47 years after they were forbidden by the Revolutionary Council.
Once Myanmar had one of the most free and lively medias in all of Asia. Under the patronage of the US Embassy, Jack Ronald, an US publishing house and newspaper reporter who has trained several journalists in Myanmar, said: "This is a very good one. Demographic reforms require an educated population, and a broad variety of privately owned dailies will help ensure that the Myanmar community has precise and impartial information at its fingertips," he said by e-mail.
Myanmar had a brief 15-year period of media freedoms between the 100-year period of violent rule and five decades of armed conflict against a backdrop of unending civilian conflict and widespread poverty. Kyaw Min Swe said that the dailies would have a greater influence on the general and members of the administration, and this could make them more contentious and more likely to be confronted with law.
Ko Ko Ko Ko said the 1962 restrictions on the publication were still in the accounts, but he did not anticipate the regime to implement them rigorously before the new Act came into effect. He has educated reporters in consultation with the Myanmar Writers and Journalists' Association and the US embassy, Doug Cosper said he understood the government's concerns by giving censorship to some messages that they believe could harm the community.
Both the Information Department and the Provisional Board of Public Relations are working on the new Act on the Use of the Internet, not always well-balanced. Recently, the Department sent a draft bill on a publisher and distributor right to the newspaper Heluttaw, while the board was still working on a draft bill on a draft bill on consumer rights. "It was formed in agreement with the presidential bureau, and the secretary himself agrees that the bill on the draft bill on the news service should be drafted by the state.
Guilty, I think, of the minister," said U Ye Myint Pe, former editor-in-chief of The Mirror and The New Light of Myanmar, now editor-in-chief of The Standard Time Daily. When the new free media makes errors, it is largely the blame of the old system that has not allowed reporters to draw lessons from their mistakes," Cosper said.
It is likely that newsmagazines will begin to fight each other as there is increasing pressure for a restricted audience. Although the new FDI Act will protect domestic news outlets from competitors from overseas, all of the domestic newspaper markets are facing restricted transport links. "On April 1, I was told that four dailies had appeared.
Neither of them has come this far," said Ko Min Htike, an NGO employee in Kyaiklat Vts., Ayeyarwady region, on April 4. He' also the only authorized reseller for his hometown for The Daily Eleven when it leaves every day on May 3rd. It is not possible for us to spread across the whole nation, but we restrict ourselves mainly to the markets of the Yangon, Mandalay, Mawlamyaine, Taunggyi and Ayeyarwady regions," said U Kyaw Min Swe.
The Standard Time Daily is published by U Ko Ko Ko Lay, a recent addition to the company's portfolio and CEO of Three Friends Construction. "Because I want them to be able to access private papers. By the end of March, the German federal administration had licenced a further 16 potential dailies, and more are expected to follow.
Over 100 books are for purchase each week. There are also four state daily newspapers. "Right now, people buy all their personal daily papers. Later, they will select their favorites to pick the fish from the tadpoles," says Ko Aung Aung, a retailer from the Sanchaung Town Ship.
"With the advent of a plethora of personal dailies, the reader will have a vote on who will be delivering their messages in the futurolog. Certainly, only a few dailies will be able to keep up with the struggle for purchasers every day. Failing that, there is cause for concern about how free the Myanmar media will be," Mr Cosper said.
Ross Dunkley, CEO of Myanmar Consolidated Technology, a long-standing international investment in Myanmar's news publishing sector and editor of one of the country's most popular newspapers, the Myanmar Times, rejected a statement on the new FDI Act. MCM' s request for day licenses for both English and Myanmar voice output is still being handled by the MCM.
A boost in the economy, which accompanies the steps towards free media and democratization, could lead to more publicity. "The ad prices in the state newspapers are very high. If we can run the newspaper in a professional manner, the outlook is very promising," said U Kyaw Min Swe.
