A recent video post on The New Atlas discussing US-backed protests in Malaysia exposed Malaysia-based media organization, “Malaysiakini,” as funded by the US government and convicted financial criminal George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.

Viewers responded with surprise that Malaysiakini was funded by the US government, apparently unaware of the media platform’s foreign backing.

Here is a video that goes deeper into Malaysiakini’s funding, what it means regarding its claims of being “independent media,” and the danger of media and opposition groups hijacking legitimate concerns among the Malaysian people in the same way the US-engineered “Arab Spring” did across the Middle East and North Africa in 2011.
