Though there were still lots of restriction in reporting in China, the freedom of press was much improved compared with 1990, said the Chairman of Thomson Reuters China.

David Schlesinger had been working in Beiging since 1991. It was a sensitive period since the Tiananmen Square protest of 1989 had just past. “There was no freedom in that period at all. Reporters would only report what the president said,” Schlesinger said.

Compared with nearly 20 years ago, he said the freedom of press was much improved [how?] though there were still many severe restrictions. We could see some media criticizing the government now [Which media? What kinds of criticisms?]. It was a journey of improvement and would not end.

Despite the difficulties to report sensitive issues in China, there were more people made use of social media like Weibo to express their opinion and they all can be journalists.

“There are 200 million people using Weibo now. If it’s a country, it would be the 4th largest one. Each people creating their contact and observing events using Weibo and thus everybody can be a reporter indeed,” said Schlesinger.

Having CY Leung to be our next Chief Executive, people feared that he would enact Article 23 and thus affecting the freedom of speech in Hong Kong [How would this affect freedom of the press?]. As a veteran reporter, Schlesinger said journalists’ work should be based on fact, but not to predict the future.

“It is difficult to predict Hong Kong’s future. And it is a dangerous act indeed [Why?]. The most important thing is that reporters have to be true to tell story,” said Schlesinger.

{Good article, overall.]
