It seems to be a trend that people in Hong Kong have extreme views toward public issues like whether schools should launch national education courses, Hong Kong China News Agency Deputy Chief Editor Candy Lo said, adding that citizens should build up their own views instead of following what others said.

Think in a critical way

Lo noted that social movements in Hong Kong were meaningful and peaceful, such as the protests against national education. But she added that protesters should have their own views by consuming more information, otherwise, they would easily be moved by politicians.

She said some Hong Kong parents did not even read the suggested teaching materials of national education but they oppose the national education. She said, it is probably that the opponents would become the political machines and criticize issues with bias.


Make choice between sales and ideal

“We can still insist on doing news without worrying about the revenue or sales, however, most of media companies are self-financed so they have to draw readers’ attention by using eye-catching headlines,” Lo said.

It is an unhealthy trend in the media industry. The news reported in an exaggerated way will make readers gain nothing from news, she said. It can only satisfy people’s curiosity but not be informative. Lo noted, those media companies rarely concerned the social responsibility. She said, it was harsh for those media companies to hold balance between gaining profits and obeying the rules of objective.

China is changing

She said the national condition of China is different from the foreign countries. Thus, it is difficult for Chinese media to write an article freely or without thinking too much. She added, it takes time for Chinese government to open up to the global community and the Chinese news agents act like the foreign news agencies such as Reuters or Associated Press to report news without many concerns.

“Wei Bo allows people to express their views freely. It is a sign to show that Chinese government is more open up to the world,” Lo said. It is significant that the community and the government are moving China towards democratization.

Be a politician

Lo said, being a good reporter, we should be familiar with local politics since any kinds of news are regarded to the area of politics. Also, she noted it is important to realize what happened in China since it helps to report China news to be more in-depth.

She added, it is important for a reporter to be sensible, critical and self-possession. These enabled us to become more professional.
