According to a report, 27 journalists are imprisoned in China now. China has many restrictions on journalism. However, “For the past 20years, China has slowly opened ,” said David Schlesinger, Chairman of Thomson Reuters China, during the general assembly held by HKSYU yesterday.


David said when it comes to reporting, there are many restrictions and legal problems in China. However, he thinks China is slowly opening up and people are more willing to express their feelings than before.


It is a great challenge to be a journalists working in China. Nevertheless, “We (Thomson Reuters China) do not avoid any sensitive information,” he said. But, he admitted there are some consequences they have to bear if reporters do not follow the restrictions, such as being put in the prison.


He thinks being journalist is a dangerous profession. It is important for journalists to understand how far they can push and how to protect their sources. “It is better to miss a story rather than put yourself in danger,” he emphasized that safety is the most important thing to journalists.


Also, he appreciates that some journalists produced a daring report on the Chinese government’s corporate scandals. “These journalists are changing journalism and China every day.”
