The English and Khmer version.

The Cambodia Daily is an English-language daily newspaper based in Cambodia. It was started in 1993 by Bernard Krisher, an American journalist. Krisher hired two young and relatively inexperienced journalists, Barton Biggs and Robin McDowell, as the paper's first editors. The first issue was published in 1993 and the paper has published ever since. It is printed in Phnom Penh in an A4-size format and is delivered six days a week, Monday to Saturday, with the Saturday edition accompanied by a full-color Weekend magazine. The Daily has access to copy both donated and purchased from major news outlets and wire services (Reuters, The New York Times, The Washington Post) and has a staff of Cambodian and foreign journalists covering local news. A daily section in the Khmer language carries articles translated from the main English-language section. A weekly international edition is available by annual subscription for US$250.

Cambodia has another English-language daily newspaper, the Phnom Penh Post, formerly fortnightly but published daily since early 2008. In 2008 a new English language newspaper, The Mekong Times also commenced publishing daily, but publication of this paper soon ceased, as advised to its subscribers on 19 August 2008, due to withdrawal of funding by one of its financial partners.

The New York Times credited The Cambodia Daily with first pointing out that Somaly Mam's stories of her childhood were false in 2012 and 2013.[1][2]
