Change is coming quickly in Myanmar, as the longtime state controlled media’s power is negotiated away by new leadership. 

Former Burmese captive, Aung San Suu Kyi’s opposition newspaper is among a host of publications planning to print daily.  The State-owned newspapers are the only dailies allowed as traditional, controlled chaos methods of media are employed.   

Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi, has spoken about cooperation with the military for months, the recent Myanmar  ‘Armed Forces Day’ was the first clear sign that the military power might be on the same page.

She was kept under house arrest for 15 years by the military being released in just over two years ago.  Suu Kyi is now the leader of the opposition in parliament and broad change is anticipated.
