The Malaysian Insider to close down

PETALING JAYA: News portal The Malaysian Insider (TMI) will cease operations at midnight on Monday, March 14.

"Goodbye readers from near and far, and those reading us in Malaysia despite the government block," TMI chief editor Jahabar Sadiq (pic) wrote in an article on Monday.

"The Edge Media Group has decided to shut down The Malaysian Insider from midnight today, for commercial reasons. Perhaps it is fitting that we go offline at the start of the Ides of March," he said.

"I hope we have served you well since our first day of going live on February 25, 2008. And I hope others will continue to serve you in our absence," Jahabar added.

In his article, Jahabar thanked readers for their support, well wishes and criticisms throughout the portal's eight years and 18 days.

"I won’t put down my pen, I won’t lay down my camera, I won’t shut up and I won’t be blinkered or turn a deaf ear to what goes on in Malaysia and the world. And I urge all of you to do the same. And I shall always be the biggest fan of this news portal called The Malaysian Insider," he wrote.
