Candy Lo, Deputy Chief Editor of Hong Kong China News Agency (CNA) denied that the agency had encountered any pressure from the left wing.


Being asked why the number of editorial in the CNA website was much fewer than that in some international news agencies such as Reuters, Lo replied that,”It is not easy for the Agency to release an editorial. In some important political issues, the coverage of the story by CNA will arouse surmise in the whole society.”


Lo also said that the agency website had just been set up for several years and did not have sufficient manpower to handle it. She explained that the current arrangement was just a decision based on business concern but not a result of encountering pressure from any political parties.


She added that the agency did have several editors who were responsible to write editorials in a take turn basis; however, even if the agency wrote any leading articles, they were often requested by other media and released on behalf of them.


She said that the CNA was striving to emulate the standard of foreign news agencies. For instance, CNA tried to expand the business by adding videos and setting up website in these few years. Also, she was in charge of in-depth reporting, utilizing the network of the agencies to invite mainland professionals and celebrities to interviews. She said the agency had covered some controversial political news, like the rally against legislation of article 23 on July 1, 2003 and the recent protest against national education, and would keep putting more emphasis on these allergic issues.
