“We do not avoid anything sensitive about China,” said David Schlesinger, the chairman of Thomson Reuters China.


Human rights and Falun Gong are two taboos in China. When you mention these issues in China, journalists will easily be caught and forbidden for going to China to report anything again. However, as an international agency, Schlesinger said they would report what they actually found (in-during) investigation(plural). “What we are doing is to stick to the truth of the stories, the real story itself interests us,” Schlesinger added that (persuading-almost correcting spelling, wrong verb at the moment) the truth is one of the fundamental elements of journalism, therefore, every reporter should report their news with this rule.


To journalist, China is just like a treasure with lots of juicy and interesting news stories. Journalists coming from (around) the globe are now trying to dig up stories from this potential market. However, many people think that the low freedom of speech in China actually limits the coverage of some news. “20 years ago, we were blocked and restricted by the China government because of the June Incident; and now we are improving, we can talk about human rights or criticiz(ing-match previous verb ending) China policy on social media like weibo,” Schlesinger thought that the restrictions are getting looser and looser. At least, journalists can find and write their own stories instead of following everything Xinhua said.


As clever and experienced journalists, they should know how to protect themselves when reporting. There are cases that journalists have been caught during interviewing, taking photos and filming videos, therefore reporting in China is quite dangerous (to-wrong preposition) reporters. “Not only for China, but for anywhere else too! No story (verb missing) worth a life and journalists should know and weigh how far they can go for a story,” Schlesinger indicated that reporters should be careful about the sources of their stories too since there are lots of fake information circulating (preposition missing) China.

Good flow, and retelling of main points! --095105 2012年3月27日 (二) 23:56 (UTC)
