Garley Builing Fire inspried a lot, said Ivan Yau


A good journalist should be calm and well-prepared, so he can do a good job in breaking news, such as that of the Garley Builing Fire, said a senior journalist in a university talk heard yesterday. [Great summary!]

"Journalists should know how to control their emotion and temper. When you report breaking news for a live show, you ought to be calm. If you are sensational, the audience may be curious that the reporter is not being objective," [great explanation of why being calm is important] said Ivan Yau, Assistant General Manager, Corporate Communications of Sino Group.


Ivan Yau was famous anchor and reporter and worked in TVB, NOW and iCable before. He shared his working experience yesterday. "In my mind, the most memorable experience was the 1996 Garley building fire and the scandel of Ownership Scheme,which is a investigation of reporting. They bring excitement and satisfaction."


Firstly, the fire incident of Garley building in 1996 impressed him so much. Yau said that when he reached there, he was petrified by many corpses. His feeling was bad at the moment. "However, I had to remind myself. I was a professional journalist. I could not be emotional. I was the first one to get the truth of this disaster. I should be calm and neutral to report the news to the audience." [Fantastic paragraph, that both explains what the incident was and reinforces why objectivity matters.]


In addition, Yau also pointed that if the reporter could bot be serene, he might not get the right witnesses and set the network to transfer the video back to the company as soon as possible.


Besides, Yau encouraged the new journalists to be critical and insistant to find the truth. Likely, the Ownership Scheme was caught up in a short-piling scandal [you should briefly explain what a 'short piling scandal' is] with the construction of two blocks of Yu Chui Court in Sha Tin in 2000. After the investigation and reporting of the media, the government ordered the construction company to demolished and rebuilt those buildings. In the meanwhile, the related building companies were delisted from the list of the govenrment. Yaue opinioned that a good journalist would be patient and keep up a good effort to find the truth.
