RTM Staff Shy Away From their Own Stuff

It was reported in Mstar that staf of Kementerian Penerangan prefer watching and listening to other stations instead of their own RTM. A survey was done to find the viewing trend of Information Ministry staffs. It was found out that TV3 is preferable instead of RTM.

Since the setting up of TV3 in the 80s, the station is very proactive in capturing their audience. As a private television station and profit depends of viewer population, they worked hard to achieve it. On the other hand RTM being a government entity are made up of staffs who are comfortable with their position as a government employee. TV3 is more to making business whereby RTM acts as a service provider. So now RTM has loose out and with todays political climate, people will shy away from RTM.

RTM is more to be the whistle blower for Barisan Nasional and it plays a part for not being popular. People want to hear the truth and not censored and filtered information that lean towards the government. Many sensational issues that the people would like to know are either not aired or refurbished to make it mild and hide the real truth. So now RTM loose out. It is more difficult to recapture the confidence of the people.

The survey was based on 1,101 respondents out of 1,650 research forms distributed among ministry staffs, departments and agencies under the ministry in Klang Valley.

Only Hot FM get a positive listener response among the staff.

Results of the survey

93.7 percent ministry staff watch TV3, RTM 1 (79.5 percent), RTM 2 (68.3 percent), TV9 (56.9 percent), NTV7 (47.1 percent), 8TV (40.1 percent) and Astro (37.2 percent).

1,032 staff watched TV3 , RTM 1 (875), RTM 2 (752),TV9 (627), NTV7 (519), 8TV (442) and Astro (410).

My choice? RTM is last choice. News Bulettin - TV3 , ERA FM the official station in my car.

your humble servant, I agree that Media Prima is also very BN. That is why there is a campaign to boycott TV3 by the opposition. Whatever it is its better to watch TV3 rather than RTM.

Beautiful tonight, I have not listen to Radio24 and I reserved my comment. In general, if the stations want to survive they must fan the government. So, watch CNN or AlJazerra, at least they don't campaign for BN. LOL
