With the coming up of Chief Executive Election, the media had been making criticism on issues continuously these days. Lai Hing Ning Peter, Honorary Professor at the Department of Politics and Public Administration of the University of Hong Kong commented that the media had caused over accountability in the society.

Lai said the media had made a single mistake or two of the public figures into big issues thus causing over accountability. “It’s the fundamental duty of the media to criticize, but the media had made the criticism too serious,” said Lai.

He said the media should judge wisely before making criticisms. He mentioned that when people mentioned about political issues, they would prefer to compare it with the past. He commented that this may not be a rational way to criticize on issues, he said, “We cannot simply just say today is a better day than the days in the Sino-British Joint Declaration period. This is not a must,” Therefore he claimed that the media should judge whether to use such way of reporting or not.

“Remember, it’s easy to go from 0 to 1, but don’t forget there is also 99,” he said. He added that the media cannot just use past issues to compare with the issues happening now, as this may cause over accountability. “The media has its own responsibility to the society also,” he said.
