Tim Chan, the executive chief editor of the Hong Kong Economic Journal, predicted the future of media will be selling “views” but not “news”, in comment of The House News(主場新聞), while he was addressing students at Shue Yan University.


“All media are following this path,” Chan said, adding he had noticed its fast growth in Hong Kong. Inspired by Huffington Post, The House News uses only social media networks to circulate and promote news. Shortly after it was founded, its articles have become popular, especially as it takes an anti-government stand and liked and shared by many in Facebook.


Chan believed opinions have a greater demand than before. “There is a group of 10 who write instant columns once things happen, not for free, for sale,” Chan said, “the training tells us(reporters) to be objective, but the market doesn't. This creates a shock to the news industury.”


A lecturer of Shue Yan goes along with him. “A professional media company should be able to separate subjective description from objective news,” the lecturer said.


As a senior in the field, Chan disclosed that some stories were actually hidden by the reporters. “For example, all financial reporters know there was bank run a few day ago, but not one puts it on the healine, because no one wants panic.” Chan said.
