Chinese Freedom of Speech in Progress


HK- March 27, 2012 by Lam Tok Ling

Although the freedom of speech in China has always been strictly controlled, it is going to have great changes, said David Schlesinger, the Chairman of Thomson Reuters China, during the general assembly at Shue Yan University yesterday.

David Schlesinger was working in Beijing during 1991 to 1994, after the June 4 Incident. He said that every media could just get information from the Xinhua, which claimed “everybody is fine”. However, he is quite optimistic to the situation, believing that the speech freedom in China will be improved. “In Weibo, people can talk about many things which are not allowed to talk before. I see it as a process that focusing on the freedom of speech more in China, “Schlesinger said.

Being asked how they would handle sensitive information of China, Schlesinger said they would not avoid all those sensitive data. The editors are free to write their pieces without any pressure.

To be a good journalist in China, apart from being factual, fair and unbiased, Schlesinger claimed it is important to protect the source. If the story is fairly reported, the China Central Government would respect the work.

He reminded that journalist is never an easy job. It is important to know your limit and clear about how far you can push. “Otherwise, try to stay away from the action, “he said. He would rather miss a story, but never put himself in danger.
