For more than two decades, the Chinese government has strictly forbidden the release of any news or information related to the Tiananmen Square massacre. To many people’s surprise, the prohibition seems to be releasing recently. Does it mean the freedom of speech of China is improving?


“Right after 64, there was no freedom of speech at all. Every newspaper was the same. Xin Hua writes and others follow,”describing the press industry in 1991 to 1994 of China by David Schlesinger, Chairman of Thomson Reuters China during a speech at Shue Yan University yesterday. He analyzed that the situation in China today is already lots better than before, “You can see that from Wei Bo, where people can discuss different things and subjects. It’s different from many years ago.” In his opinion, China is in a good track in developing freedom of speech, “It’s a process, not ended yet and will not end, which is a good thing… China is slowly opening up more.”


Although China has already improved a lot in terms of freedom of speech, there are still many limitations for Journalists to work in the country. Schlesinger admitted that it is not easy to engage in news reporting in China that journalists must be very careful, “The worst case is that your passport will be thrown out. I have seen many people prisoned.”He suggested journalists must understand the limits and be absolute sure about their facts and at the same time knowing how to protect them, “You have to be very fast, very accurate, very fair and very unbiased.” To him, no news story worth a life and journalists must be very careful and understand how to protect their lives.
