HONG KONG, Feb 5 – Timesquare magazine's editorial director, Jack Forest, said that reporters are influential enough to sway readers in Hong Kong with the power of words by possessing an independent and creative mind in writing.


Timesquare magazine targets on readers of the upper reaches of society. As a journalist covering issues on lifestyle and consumption, Forest said he has to conduct a lot of professional research in order to distinguish the coverage by telling stories "behind the scenes" that the readers have not experienced.


"The readers may not be able to afford the luxurious watches I introduced or the sumptuous food I tasted, but at least they can have the right to appreciate the efforts paid by the fabricators behind the elegance," said Forest.


Forest stressed that reporters should possess an independent mind in order to come up with distinctive stories. He used the case of Whatsapp charging its customers for an annual fee as an example, emphasizing that the dominating comments can easily sway the public.


"People are always jumping on the bandwagon over issue. My ambition is to introduce them an independent thinking style," said Forest.


Forest spends 20 hours for work every day out of his passion to writing. He said that he is only paid with 10 thousand dollars for a month of hard work, but he is paid to do what he enjoyed.


According to Forest, Timesquare Magazine is planning to invite celebrities for typical cover story in order to attractive more readers.
