The Malaysian Insight closes shop

KUALA LUMPUR: News portal The Malaysian Insight (TMI) will stop publication from next week onwards due to financial reasons, its editor and chief executive Jahabar Sadiq said today.

In the note to TMI’s readers, Jahabar said the year-old news website’s publications suspension is due to its missing of a “major milestone in starting a paywall” and as page views traffic has not reached the targeted critical mass.

“Hence, we need to review our direction, news operations and commercial viability.

“The decision to suspend publication in the interim is a difficult one, but was made due to the challenging financial environment faced by The Malaysian Insight and other media outlets,” he said in the statement published on TMI this evening.

The Malaysian Insight thanks it’s readers and journalists and staff working here since its inception on March 31, 2017,” he said.
