(You have stressed in your article that news agency are different from other so-called regular media and its reporter should have a macro view and should therefore write stories with depth and insight. But you did not cite any concrete example to underscore the difference. Lo herself was a good example to demonstrate how a reporter with macro view was important while working for a news agency. She was first assigned to work the beat of education and literature news and then one day, she was asked to fly to Beijing to report on the annual national "two-meetings" without prior experience.)


Macro view is necessary

“A reporter of a news agency should have a macro view.” said Candy Lo, The Deputy Chief Editor of Hong Kong China News Agency. She added when reporting in Hong Kong, “China factor” can never be ignored.

Different audience, different requirements

Lo said since the news agency has a different target audience as normal media, like newspapers, higher expectations are imposed on the crew. News agency, according to Lo is a news provider, their news are reported for senior and experienced editors, or even chief editors at times in different media. Hence, their reports must be of high quality, precise and concise, with depth and broad enough.

Importance of a macro view

Lo commented on the reporters of news agencies should be equipped with a macro view in order to meet the above requirements. This is all due to the specialty of their target readers. They have to dig in deeper than normal media and with the macro view; their reports will naturally be of the expected quality.

Timeliness rules

Lo said as being a news provider to media, they are required to be timely. The Hong Kong China News Agency, for example, requested a report to be done in 2 hours after the news event. Lo said since it is for a newspaper, then they have to be much faster. The rule of not reporting the news of yesterday is also a result of the timely requirement.
