There are no professional qualifications for journalists(none at all?-careful with absolute statements-perhaps there are few). Even so, people always regard journalists as professional, impartial, or most importantly, ethical. Due to this reason, there are many invisible lines for journalists in terms of ethics. Former journalist Ivan Yau Man-wah suggested one of them. “I would not speak publicly online, unless it is an absolute right or wrong issue,” said Yau.(very strong opening-good!)


Yau believed that there is no problem (to-replace with another preposition) voice(conjugate progressive tense) opinion online, but he himself will not make his thoughts or private life public. “The Internet is kind of (like-use kind of, or like-both make the speaker sound inarticulate) a public place, you should be careful and think twice before posting any remarks online, said Yau.


Professor Leung Tin-wai, head of the Journalism and Mass Communcation department, agreed that journalists should be extra careful with their remarks online. “Reporters should never talk about their own company, especially on social networking sites, it is unethical to do so,” said Professor Leung. “I will fire all the reporters if I found any bad remarks (towards-use were made about) the company from them,” he added.


Yau further explained that if the remarks (will not be-use past tense of will, no need for to be) disseminated and (are-past tense) only meant for a small group of people, then “it will be okay to do so.”

Good title, and very good opening-keep up the good work!
