English daily New Straits Times has terminated the weekly columns penned by two of its popular contributors – controversial filmmaker Amir Muhammad and social activist Zainah Anwar, where both columns last appeared on July 27 and August 2 respectively. (Malaysiakini).
While they are axing columnists with alternative views, I heard (not too long ago) they were recruiting journalists for their Features Desk. Sorry, oldies need NOT apply. They want people in their 30s. The salary? Up to RM6K for full-time Specialist Writers.
NST is also looking (perhaps already found) for a journalist who can write on Chinese politics (WITHOUT BIAS), including community issues and analytical pieces for the Op-Ed section. Reason: to provide news and views as elections draw ever closer.
Wanna apply? I don’t know if they’ve got their people already. But can you be “without bias“? if, not, don’t even think of it, okay?
