Malaysian Newspaper Starts Online Subscriptions (via TEoF): Malaysian online newspaper Malaysiakini.com has started charging for its daily news. The move comes six months after it began a subscription-based model for its features section by charging RM100 a year or RM10 a month; it has so far attracted 1,000 subscribers.
