Welcome to LIFT issue 53

Although we believe in the power of print here at Lift, we also know that TV and radio are the most popular forms of media in the Kingdom. TV viewers number in the millions, while newspaper and magazine readers are in the hundreds of thousands.

With this is mind, this week we are focusing on how accurate the news that people receive through the TV really is (page 10), and we try to find out if Cambodian culture can be saved by more exposure to Cambodian youth watching TV (page 6).

We are also calling on readers to tell us which rising start they think will shine brightest in 2011, so we can take your questions and interview them for an upcoming issue of lift. So read, text and enjoy. See you again next week.
