    The Malaysian government says media freedom is guaranteed by the constitution but yet many laws control the flow of information in the country's newspapers and on radio and television.

    Malaysia's freedom of press has been ranked a low 131 out of 175 countries by Reporters Without Borders, an international NGO.
