Last Tuesday (Feb 12), something very important happened in Malaysia, yet it only received coverage for one day. Bersatu, Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamadís party, and arguably the most important party in the Pakatan Harapan coalition admitted seven ex-UMNO MPs into the party. By the next day, the entire media coverage on Malaysia turned their full attention to the aborted corruption trial of Najib Razak. The Bersatu episode was, more or less, forgotten. This is the nature of political news in Malaysia now, in the new social media age and a 24/7 news cycle.
