Kata Kolektif is a Malaysian publication which offers a young, well-researched perspective on current affairs in the country (and occasionally the world). We focus on writing pieces which explain complicated topics, providing a platform for diverse views and perspectives often neglected in Malaysian media. We believe in fair and balanced coverage, whilst acknowledging that “fair” and “balanced” are often used to equivocate unequal views. See: debates about global warming which pit one scientist and one climate-denier against one another.This means that certain views, while they may be covered, will be covered ethically and responsibly. Neutrality itself is a political position, and we do not believe that it is possible to report in a truly “neutral” manner.
