Good Luck.
People Burma could buy a newspaper a private news company Monday the first time 50 years. Burma's government has allowed the printing 16 newspapers, although only four were ready the first day of sale. The Burmese military took control the press and the news it published in 1964. From then Sunday, the government controlled what news people read. Life was made impossible journalists the free press. The government tortured and imprisoned many reporters who broke the rules. Burma is also allowing international news agencies to work in the country. The Associated Press became the first when its six staff opened business on Saturday.
The re-introduction private newspapers comes on the first anniversary of the election opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi to parliament. She has been a strong supporter bringing back the free press to Burma. Her political party, the National League Democracy, will start printing its own daily newspaper later this month. The editor of the "Voice Daily" newspaper thinks the private newspapers will be better than the government ones. He said: "I can say absolute confidence that we can compete government papers in terms content and quality of news." He added: "I am very excited that we are finally printing daily editions. It is a dream come true." The "Voice Daily" printed its first edition Monday.
