For the past months, or shall we say the first half of 2014, it has been all about politics. From our TV stations (not that I watch TV, but my dad does) to the Internet, especially social media. For those who have been living under the rock, Indonesia has just went through a legislative election and the presidential election. The winner have been decided officially, though the opponent are still insisting that it is not over yet.
Putting all that behind, I want to talk about how I have been reading Tempo magazine a lot ever since politics get into our daily life. I mean I have been hearing about it a lot and how great it is but didn’t really realize it until I actually read it. To be honest, I didn’t exactly love reading in Bahasa Indonesia, I have always preferred to read in English (thus, making me better writing in the language as well), but Tempo has changed that mindset.
Compared to any other media, I probably will say that Tempo has a really, really good investigative journalism. It has courage to write something that other media might not write about especially on how corruption isn’t only happening on this place, but apparently it’s all over Indonesia and it manages to dig deep on more and more things. So, with this post I’d love to recommend you to read Tempo (it has English version as well) and subscribe to it.
