Living in the information age, it is inevitable that we as citizens receive a multitude of news, from a multitude of sources – from mainstream media to independent news portals to social media – at a very high frequency. Worse than that, a large portion of this information is filtered, censored or influenced by certain agendas. It is no wonder that the average citizen is either overloaded with information or simply chooses to ignore news for fear of propaganda.
We at The Rakyat Post look beyond labels and predispositions to bring you facts, insights and analyses in a clear and understandable manner. We strive to put you, our readers, in a position to make sense of current issues based on unfiltered, unbiased information from credible sources, and make a stand of your own.
Facilitating our goal of keeping our readers informed and hungry for the truth, The Rakyat Post is also a platform for anyone and everyone to share their views and experiences. We aim to nurture an environment of intellectual discussions and constructive arguments from all walks of life. We utilise polls, surveys, comment functions and other such tools to give the public a loud a voice as possible – because we believe every point of view matters.
