Reporters are often given many in-depth thinking assignments which require lots of analysis. However, David Schlesinger, the Chairman of Thomson Reuters China and guest speaker at Hong Kong Shue Yan University stated that journalists do not need to know what the future will hold.

Though C.Y. Leung has won the next Chief Executive Election, he has been criticized by the media for playing a role in controlling the freedom of speech in Hong Kong. Furthermore, he is blamed for keeping people from enjoying their right to demostrate and to express their thoughts. As a Chairman of a medium, when asked about his opinion about the future of Hong Kong, Schlesinger said that a journalist should not predict the future.


“We, as a journalists, should monitor the government, that’s our job.” he said, “to question them about what they did, but not to make predictions about what the future is going to look like.”


He added that a journalist should pay attention to the truth, but not the future. He said that journalists should not be concerned about being the first to report news on a certain issue. Sometimes reporters have to wait and trust their instincts will lead them to the truth.
