I did a check on Alexa to find out the estimated global reach of the main English media in Malaysia.
Here are the rankings at 5.30 pm on 4 August 2007:
1. Star (0.052% of daily Internet surfers worldwide)
2. Malaysia Today (0.020%)
3. NST (0.014%)
4. Malaysiakini (0.009%)
5. Harakahdaily (0.0075%)
Beige – The Star; Blue – Malaysia Today; Black – NST; Red – Malaysiakini; Green – Harakah
Interesting to see that Malaysia Today has overtaken NST, Malaysiakini and Harakahdaily and is now closing in on The Star online!
Of course, this is just a very rough estimate – with all kinds of other variables that could present a different picture – but it is a revealing snapshot nonetheless.
