Hong Kong, 27 Mar – The restriction of press in Mainland China has been improving, said David Schlesinger, Chairman of Thomson Reuters, during his speech in Hong Kong Shue Yan University today’s afternoon.

The freedom of speech is the core value in Hong Kong. Mainland China, however, is seen as suppressing the freedom of speech. Reporting in China is dangerous, and many cases of reporting in China had been forbidden and the reporters had been sent to jail.

After the “June 4th incident”, every media followed the Xinhua News Agency. At that time, the broadcasting of information was restricted. Every media had reported all the same thing, same idea and the same story. “What Xinhua said, everybody else followed.” Said Schlesinger. However, after 20 years, “It is better than before. Everything is improving”. Although China still has restriction on reporting, the circumstances has been changed and improved today [How had the situation changed and improved? Why has it changed and improved?]. He pointed out that there were many media had been reporting daringly and many people discussed different sensitive topic on Weibo as well.

Apart from the freedom of reporting in China, Schlesinger also talked about the scandal of tapping of Murdoch’s newspaper. He said that Murdoch’s case affected the whole industry negatively. It could cause the UK and the Europe tighten up the restriction of press. He believed that this issue was unforgivable. They were not intended to report news, but just disclose celebrities’ scandal and earning money which were not contributing to the societies.

[A central theme of the article seems to be that Freedom of the Press is improving in Mainland China, but you never explain how or why that is the case.]
