News - Media produced by the Government of Burma/Myanmar
Full, original versions of "The New Light of Myanmar", "Kyemon" and "Myanmar Alin"
OBL produces pdf files reduced from the heavy official versions (see Sources, below, for originals). Some of the reduced files are illegible on Mozilla Firefox so best to use other browsers such as Google Chrome. Recent files of the Burmese periodicals have been so heavy that legible reductions have been difficult. Try downloading them with a (free) download manager such as Flashget.
Sources of the full online versions of "The New Light of Myanmar", "Kyemon" ("The Mirror") and "Myanmar Alin"
The online locations of these publications have varied in 2013 with some sites closing down for a while, then re-opening - frequently with truncated archives. Foreverspace used to be the most consistent source. It has an archive back to 2003, but in recent months has often been offline or inactive. The Online Burma/Myanmar Library (OBL) uses all the sources and attempts to keep a complete archive. Check these sources for the latest issues if they are not in the OBL sections below.
"The New Light of Myanmar" 2003
Most issues from 16 June 2003 -- issues from June - October were downloaded from the Foreverspace site, which does not have a complete record.
Text versions of news items from "The New Light of Myanmar"
These versions contain domestic and foreign news, but lack photos, editorial and articles. They are much smaller files than the full pdf versions. Unfortunately most have been removed from the Government sites and can only be found as archives - via archive.org
