Editor’s Memo

Volume 17 (1), 2022 of Forum Komunikasi has just been issued with a refreshing list of journal articles consisting of academically inspiring debates related to the field of communication and media.

The first paper by Pui Gou Siang and Rani Ann Balaraman discusses on the framing of news on COVID-19 vaccination in the Malaysian mainstream and alternative online news portals, namely New Straits Times Online, The Star Online, Malaysiakini, and Free Malaysia Today. The findings resolved that there is a statistically significant difference in the use of news frames between the online news portals which could serve as a benchmark for journalists and media practitioners in their future reporting of vaccination news.

Next is an article on the usefulness of journalistic ethics by Malay-language journalists in Malaysia. This piece by Nor Zaliza Sarmiti and Hamedi Mohd. Adnan discusses on ethical issues in journalism. Employing the mixed method approach involving almost 300 journalists as respondents from five (5) Malay language newspapers, findings of this study revealed that many of the journalists respect and practice the journalism code of ethics in their profession.
