Forum on ethnicity and the media in Penang

Of late, ethnicity (and also religion) has taken centre stage in many sections of the mainstream media, with a few of the media organisations carrying the kind of reporting that only causes uneasiness, to say the least, among members of Malaysia’s multi-ethnic, multi-religious and multi-cultural society.

It is therefore most appropriate and timely that the Centre for Independent Journalism (CIJ), along with Suaram Penang and PEWAJU (Pertubuhan Wartawan dan Jurugambar Akhbar Cina Pulau Pinang), is organising a public forum on the portrayal of ethnicity in the media, which will be held today at 8.30 pm at Han Chiang College.

The panellists are:

1. Mr. Ha’ta Wahari (NUJ President and former Utusan journalist)
2. Mr. Himanshu Bhatt (senior Penang-based journalist)
3. Dr Carmen Nge (academic and ethnicity trainer)
