OCT 25-“Weibo is a present from god. No one should miss it,” says QianGang, explaining that social networking services (like-informal) Facebook and Weibo have taken over traditional media.


(723 is a tragedy for all Chinese-no need to say it, as the next sentence implies it). The disastrous Wenzhou train crash in July has resulted in heavy casualties. Furthermore, it has also revealed the authoritative control on the media in mainland by the Chinese Government. Newspapers have been warned not to report anything besides (referring to the CCTV-how so?). Nonetheless, news on the train accident has reached the ears of many people (with regard-inap) to the posts and pictures on Weibo, which were uploaded by the injured and eye-witnesses.


QianGang, an experienced non-fiction writer and journalist, believes the tight control on news reporting by the Chinese Government has induced pressure to the existing media. The pressure, however, has intensified people’s curiosity and led to the transformation of the traditional media to the “New Media”, (which people no longer feed from newspapers but be the one who feed the news.-unclear clause, also run on sentence)


“It is harsh to work for the newspapers in mainland. We ought to understand that editors there are under great political pressure exerts by the Government,” says Qian, who tries to defend his mainland colleagues.


Nevertheless, Qian hopes one day the Chinese Government would allow greater freedom of press in mainland.


“I cannot say whether the government is going to loosen the control on media, but Weibo gives us hope,” says Qian.

Title Correction: Journalists, in the era of Weibo

Article: Be careful with run on sentences, and read over your article out loud to catch awkward sentence structures. As for the article, the ending seems inconclusive, the relationship between Weibo and journalism was not elaborated enough.
