Chairman of Thomson Reuters China: China keeps improving the freedom of press

27th Mar, 2012 Reporter/ Tang Yee Ting

HONG KONG ---- The Chinese government is always criticized by the western media for its censorship over the press. However, the chairman of Thomson Reuters China, David Schlesinger, thinks freedom of speech has been improving.

“The reform of Chinese media policy is in progess,’’ David Schlesinger said in the General assembly of Shue Yan University yesterday.

In the 90s, journalists could only follow what Xinhua News agency reported. If the media companies didn't follow the rules, they would probably not be allowed to reporting in China any longer. However, this environment is changing now. The restriction of press in China is lessening according to Schlesinger. “You can see people write their political opinions on Weibo. You can see some newspapers or medias criticize the government policies or widespread corruption. So, there is great improvement on China's part in regards to freedom of the press,” he said.

Desptite these improvements, Schlesinger thinks China may face some problems or drawbacks. In fact, there are some people being arrested when they are dealing with sensitive issues towards the Chinese government like Cheng Xiang. Cheng is the civil rights activist who helps people who suffered from the 2008 food safety incident. Besides, Schlesinger also thinks it is very important to clarify that the news accuracy is important as the journalists may get in trouble if they report fake news. --095178 2012年3月27日 (二) 21:02 (UTC)
