Excessive use of foreign programmes for media

Other Names:
Inability to generate sufficient culture-specific programmes
Submission to media cultural imperialism

Despite strong ethnic Malay nationalism, as a result of Western programming on local TV stations, it was claimed in 1993 that the Malaysian culture was being heavily diluted, especially among the young.
