Print media still relevant, says Anwar

IPOH: The print media still plays a big role in delivering news, says Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

The Prime Minister said among the challenges faced by print media was the growth of social media.

“While I do check for updates on social media, I still read the newspaper every day.

“Reading the newspaper is a compulsory habit of mine and I believe that the role played by newspapers is more relevant than social media,” he said during the 2023 National Journalists' Day (Hawana) summit at Casuarina Convention Centre here today (May 28).

Anwar added that to remain important, newspapers must stick to their true value.

“I recently read the results of research done in the United States where it is proven that (with the rise in social media) the image that their print media would eventually decline is wrong.

“Therefore, if the media retains its integrity, freedom, and quality, they will certainly continue to be relevant,” he said.
