Bali News: Bali Update Turns 13
Click Image to Enlarge

(2/28/2011)

With the publication of Edition #775 of Bali Update - the well known newsletter on Bali tourism and development will turn 13 two days later on March 2, 2011.

Born in a period when many in Bali felt the island was not getting fair coverage in the international press, we employed emails and websites to counter CNN and other international media who were incorrectly reporting smoke form forest fires was covering the entire nation and were also unfairly over-dramatizing Indonesia's early, faltering steps at nation building after more than 30 years of dictatorial rule.

Bali Update is a child of the Internet Age. Beginning via series of emails shared with friends and colleagues, it grew to find a home on the website of Balidiscovery.com and a weekly list of subscribers that has surpassed 22,000. Every month hundreds of thousands of pages are visited at www.balidiscovery.com where over 9,000 links to articles and a comprehensive range of Bali travel products can be found.

The articles published in Bali Update are routinely rebroadcast, quoted and linked by international media. Bali Update articles earn top rankings on Google News and other leading Internet news indexes. Recognized with a Gold Award from Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) and labeled as "Bali's Truth Ministry" by Time Magazine, the newsletter's Chief Editor, J. M. Daniels, has received the highest tourism awards from the government of Indonesia and the Province of Bali.

Is the Bali Update controversial? In fact, the majority of the coverage we carry is a summary of news translated from leading Indonesian websites and newspapers. On that count, Bali Update is no more controversial than the daily fare of the Indonesian press which is now enjoying an unprecedented level of press freedom and open debate only possible in modern day Indonesia.

On those occasions when we wish to express our views, we clearly label these as Editorials. Editorials, however, comprise a very small part of our coverage with the majority of opinions in Bali Update remaining those expressed by the Balinese and Indonesian leaders quoted in the daily press who speak again from our pages.
