Indonesia: New English Daily

Unspun reviews the newest English language daily in Indonesian market. The paper is produced by a business group called Jababeka. “If the Jababeka group wants to run its own newsletter then they should just get a blog, a website or print out a newsletter. To dress it up as a newspaper and pretend it is one while a large portion of what it does is hagiography of the Jababeka idols is silly, wasteful and will not win the paper respect or readers.”
