This is intended to be a growing list, so there's more to come. If you see a site of interest not listed here, please drop me a line.

Nhan Dan

Nhan Dan is the official newspaper of the Vietnam Communist Party, useful for understanding government policy, but otherwise considered boring by most Vietnamese, so I'm told.

From Hanoi, Viet Nam News

English versions are reported to be available in the future.


ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON NEWSPAPERS FROM THE REGION

Information from George Moore

A not so boring newspaper seems to be "Cong An Thanh Pho Ho Chi Minh", better known in English as the "Saigon Police Gazette". Copies can been seen on every table in southern Vietnam today, and in every cafe. Here is a description of the content of the paper from a recent Vietnam Insight post. Those Vietnam Insight guys do seem to have their finger on the pulse of today's Vietnam!

"The most popular newspaper in Vietnam is the Cong An Thanh Pho Ho Chi Minh which is published by the police in Ho Chi Minh City. Its weekly circulation is more than 500,000 copies and newspaper vendors say it sells out almost immediately, unlike the party paper Nhan Dan which many of them choose not to sell because it brings in so little money. The Cong An newspaper is filled with lurid tales of sex and violence, of gang crimes and prostitution.

It presents a picture of Vietnam at odds with the idea of a peaceful crime free nation that used to be the official line. But it combines this sort of tabloid journalism with an emphasis on the need for more policing and tighter social control. It is often the forum of attacks against any person that is critical of the Party - it frequently attacks writers, artists and social activists for their work and is often hostile to foreigners. It often includes stories about the Overseas Vietnamese that portray them as dangerous and criminal. Its stories are often libelous and frequently violate rights of privacy.

It represents the worse of 2 worlds -- the worst of the unfettered tabloid journalism that is seen in the west and the worst sort of social and political control offered by communist countries. Its propaganda is more effective than Nhan Dan and is read by more people. This newspaper has more influence than any other in Vietnam."

Where Cambodia is concerned, readers should know that there are several English language newspapers from Cambodia online on the Internet these days.

Most importantly, the English language Phnom Penh Post is now online. See www.newspapers.com.kh/phnompenhpost This independent newspaper has been published in Phnom Penh since early 1992, since just after the Pattaya Peace Accords in October of 1991. They've gotten their paper online just recently.

Lastly, there is a new newspaper published in Phnom Penh for the use of tourists. It's called the Bayon Pearnik. They too have just recently gotten their latest editions onto the Internet. See their page on www.bayon-pearnik.com
