If you’re not in Cambodia, but you’re trying to keep up with all the latest news and information about the country, only a few handful of media websites that provide news coverage. Until now there are several English-language newspapers.
This blog post is about how you can get more news and information not through Cambodian news sites. There is a wider possibility as more and more journalists make use of the Internet as a sophisticated communication tool. Through weblogs or blogs, journalists still have more to give more personal insights, if not opinions, about a wide range of issues.
Here’s a list of Cambodia-based foreign correspondents:
A journalist based in Cambodia. His main subjects of interest include regional diplomacy, human rights abuses and religious tensions. In Cambodia, he reports regularly on the Khmer Rouge war crimes court and issues related to the legacy of the ultra-Maoist Khmer Rouge regime.
An Australian journalist based in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Currently, he is deputy news editor at the Phnom Penh Post, the country’s newspaper of record.
Wishing to concentrate on one country instead of continuously travelling, he is based in Cambodia since 2000, a country he visits since 1989. He currently mainly documents land issues all over Cambodia but also covers other social issues as well as the Khmer Rouge trial. Other recent books are Avoir Vingt Ans a Phnom Penh, published by Editions Alternatives and Poids Mouche, self published.

One of Cambodia’s English-language newspapers, The Phnom Penh Post, has its internet site, which can be found here: http://www.phnompenhpost.com/. Before long, its online edition was available for paid subscribers. But as new investors have injected financial power, the paper went daily from bi-weekly. The nearly-two-decade-old paper also expand into local language, Khmer. Take a look at this for Khmer readers: http://khmer.phnompenhpost.com/.
Probably the most read print newspaper, The Cambodia Daily still hesitates to go online. Despite it has its own website, not all its daily content is available for online readers at cost or no cost. If the Daily were to launch its site, competition with The Phnom Penh Post will be a greater benefit for general audience.
