Abstract

Tanpa ragu lagi para belia adalah pemimpin untuk hari esok. Para belia penggerak sesebuah negara, akan memimpin dan merangkul masa depan dalam bidang ekonomi, dan sosio-politik negara. Kertas kerja ini akan mengkaji penggunaan media dalam kehidupan seharian belia di Malaysia selain memberi tumpuan kepada kepentingan politik mereka. Tiga kajian telah dijalankan semasa pilihan raya umum di Malaysia, yang pertama pada Mac 2008, yang kedua pada bulan Julai 2013 dan yang ketiga pada bulan Januari 2018. Responden untuk kajian ini adalah antara umur 21 hingga 35 tahun. Responden dipilih seluruh negara melalui persampelan kuota dengan wawancara bersemuka yang berlangsung antara 30 hingga 45 minit. Kajian melibatkan 668 responden pada tahun 2008, 559 responden pada tahun 2013 dan 1092 responden pada tahun 2018. Penemuan kajian mendapati bahawa dari tahun 2008 hingga 2018, tontonan televisyen dan membaca akhbar menurun berbanding penggunaan Internet yang meningkat daripada 9% 2008 kepada 46 % pada tahun 2018. Walaupun internet telah menjadi semakin popular di kalangan pengundi Malaysia namun pengundi masih meletakkan kepercayaan dalam media tradisional sebagai sumber maklumat. Ini dapat dilihat dalam hasil kajian tiga tahun di mana majoriti pengundi (lebih daripada 70%) menyatakan kepercayaan mereka di televisyen daripada di Internet. Tahap penggunaan media dan keyakinan dalam media juga mempengaruhi minat dalam politik. *************************************************************************************** Without doubt youths are the leaders of tomorrow. The youths, the driving force of a nation, will lead and embrace the future in the field of economics, and socio-politics of the country. This paper will study media use in the daily lives of the Malaysian youths in addition to focusing on their political interest. Three studies were conducted during the general elections in Malaysia, the first in March 2008, the second in July 2013 and the third in January 2018. Respondents for this study were between the ages of 21 to 35 years. Respondents were selected nation-wide through quota sampling by face-to-face interviews lasting between 30 to 45 minutes. The survey involved 668 respondents in 2008, 559 respondents in 2013 and 1092 respondents in 2018. The findings of the study found that from 2008 to 2018, television viewing and newspaper reading decreased compared to the use of Internet which rose from 9% 2008 to 46% in 2018. Although the internet has become increasingly popular among Malaysian voters yet the voters still placed trust in the traditional media as sources of information. This can be seen in the results of the three-year study where the majority of the voters (over 70%) expressed their trust on television than on the Internet. The level of media usage and confidence in the media has also affected interest in politics.
