Abstract

Chinese newspapers are believed to grow in tandem with the development of the Chinese community life in Malaysia. The purpose of this study is to analyse the articulation of historical issues and the roles played by Chinese newspapers in nation-building. The data were collected through the analysis of previous information, especially from the archive and interviews with Chinese newspapers’ chief editors. The findings from the analysis indicated that Chinese newspapers have a direct connection to the evolution of the Chinese community in Malaysia from the early stage of the emergence and development of the Chinese newspapers in Malaysia. This aids the newspapers to articulate the important events in their news reporting, and play significant roles as the agent of change in accordance with time. In the beginning of the emergence of the Chinese newspapers in Malaysia, they were seen as an instrument to help immigrants from China to be updated with developments in their homeland, and then slowly moving towards economic avenues especially to advertise new products. The rise of nationalism movement in China also witnessed a rapid emergence of Chinese newspapers in Nanyang to gain support from huaqiao to overthrow the monarchy emperor of China in favour of a democratic system, followed by a movement to fight the Japanese occupation in China. Agendas advocated by the Chinese newspapers changed shortly after the Second World War II, where they had been seen working closely with Malay politicians to fight for the Malaya independence from the British. After the independence of Federation of Malaya in 1957 and the formation of Federation of Malaysia in 1963, they shifted their focus to the socio-economic survival of the Chinese community and preservation of Chinese culture, especially Chinese education in Malaysia. These mainstream newspapers are difficult to be separated from politics where they are often associated with the ruling party and their support to the government policies which include national unity and nation-building. Nevertheless, Chinese newspapers are always seen as more balanced in giving space to the huatuan and political parties with different ideologies as long as their agendas are related to Chinese community’s interests.
