The media environment in China would be more liberal when the government opens up to the outside world, said Candy Lo, deputy chief editor of Hong Kong China News Agency (CNA).


Hong Kong China News Agency,as one of the only two state- level agencies in China, has subscribers in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao, overseas Chinese and related foreigners.


“At present,more than 200 Chinese media use CNA’s news wire service,” said Lo yesterday at Hong Kong Shue Yan University. In fact, CNA is generally regarded as a left-wing press in Hong Kong for its historical background. Most Hong Kong citizens thought that it only reports good things about China while bad things remains forbidden.


But Lo said that CNA insists the principles of impartiality and impersonality on reporting news. “We have also reported on the anniversaries of the Tiananmen Square massacre since 2007, and covered the news of Liu Xiao Bo winning the award of Nobel Peace Prize,” she said.


Lo said, ”Media ecosystem in Hong Kong have changed greatly in recent years.” Because of commercial interest, some local news media almost forget about their social responsibilities. The antics of some reports that pander to audiences by exaggerating or distorting the news is an extreme.


Once Lo asked a mother why she demanded the withdrawal of moral and national education. The woman said, “Everyone turned thumbs down on this, so did I.” She thought it was dangerous that some news misleads the public, though all discussions remain open. ”We must have our own understanding of political concept,” Lo strongly suggested.


Still,Lo felt optimistic about the political reform of China and improvement of Chinese media ecosystem. "Give time and space to China and its development, media environment or so will certainly move towards more liberty," she said.
