Burmese newspapers

The Irrawaddy is published by the Irrawaddy Publishing Group (IPG). IPG was established in 1992 by Burmese citizens living in exile and is not affiliated with any political party or organisation. The Irrawaddy seeks to promote press freedom and access to unbiased information.

The New Light of Myanmar is the English language daily newspaper. Its domestic news reinforces government policy, it highlights the 'national objectives' of government and its content is strictly monitored. Editors, reporters, and their families remain answerable to the military authorities.
