A China news agency seen as a government mouthpiece is, in fact, moving step-by-step towards objective reporting, said Deputy Chief Editor Candy Lo in defense of Hong Kong China News Agency (CNA).

When the train accident happened last year in Wenzhou, an internally-distributed notice leaked out from the mainland saying that any news gathering on the case other than those from the official press was forbidden. Publications were required to issue the entire piece of reporting generated from the official media. Since then, citizens have questioned the credibility of mainland media.

Lo acknowledges that China still intervenes in newsrooms, but she expressed optimism that it could change, during a talk with journalism majors at Shue Yan University yesterday.

"To be frank, we cover none of these sensitive issues like the annual candlelit vigil on June 4 in the past but we have been starting to make changes five years ago," said Lo.

During the Q & A session, Lo was challenged by a student who asked for evidence that CNA had been following official guidelines in reporting the Li Wangyang incident.

Lo evaded the issue but added that CNA would be fighting for more independency in reporting and a choice to offer a full picture with varies angles for readers to interpret how the story goes for the news coming afterwards.

' As long as the mainland is enhancing openness and transparency, I am sure, we would strike hard to be more autonomous and I have faith that something could surely be achieved, ' Lo said.
