  8. Press in Indonesia in the early days was a tool of the Revolution‟to energize and mobilize public opinion to struggle against colonialism.+
  9. From Sen and Hill (2000) in 1965 the Information Ministry instructed all newspapers to be affiliated with a political party. #perspective+
  10. The New Order regime was not only controlling but also requiring the media as the agent of stability within the state. #perspective+

  18. Radio was also an important communication tool in legitimizing Suharto’s rise to power in 1965. #perspective+
  19. Then the role of media was shifting to agent of stability in 1960s and 1970s and in the 1980s and 1990s became agent of development. (Do u remember about Soeharto as Bapak Pembangunan Bangsa) #perspective+

  21. From my #perspective the mass media significantly has shaped the public opinion to political party and actors.+
  22. Journalists&the mass media found themselves, arguably are more independent from the state power and so they are relatively free.#perspective+
  23. In this regard, the mass media freedom is pretty much influenced by the changing political conditions. #perspective+
  24. mass media are able to politicize the public&help to overcome such compliance through providing wider knowledge of alternatives#perspective+
