Candy Lo, the deputy chief editor of Hong Kong China News Agency, said that it’s ridiculous that supporters of the recent Anti-National Education Movement couldn’t even tell why they protested but they just simply followed the majority. She believed that it somewhat resulted from media instigation.


“Some local news media are trying to gain more profit by exaggerating and being provocative, however, they forget about their social responsibilities as media workers”, said Lo, yesterday at Hong Kong Shue Yan University.


Most readers in Hong Kong, however, tend to prefer attractive, shocking but usually vulgar news and find them more believable. Lo pointed out that public opinion has become increasingly extreme in the recent two years. Thus, she suggested that people should stand firm against the popular opinion and try to look into the problems based on different points of view.


HKCNA, funded by the Chinese government, is often considered a left-wing media agency and is biased in the China government’s favor.


Lo argued that all media have their standpoints, and it’s difficult to tell which are correct. She said that even though CNA was supported by Chinese investment, it still adhered to the principle of justice and journalists were trying to provide news with objective views. For example, CNA has covered the news of Liu Xiaobo when he won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2010.


Still, Lo admitted that CNA was more or less controlled by the China government, though it was becoming freer as China developed in its liberty.
