Ivan Yau, a former senior reporter, said that journalists without own views find it hard to succeed, but that they should not freely express their views on social networks during his speech at Shue Yan University today.

Yau thinks that Journalists should not express too much on social networks unless the issues are one sided, undoubtedly right or undoubtedly wrong. These instant comments are always published without a careful decision. False comments, especially from senior journalists, will harm somebody.

Once a comment is published, it willspread fast and cannot be completely removed. Some news agencies have guidelines to their journalists about relative manners. [What are some exmaples of the guidleines?] [Unintelligible sentence removed.]

Never be disturbed by emotions

Participating in reporting Garley Building’s fire in 1996, Yau looked into the building through the camera before doing a live report. He saw a lot of bodies lying on the floor.

Yau said that broadcasting journalists always receive “unaffordable pictures” behind the scenes. They have to clam down before on air. Otherwise, audiences will question the journalists’ professional judgments. Audiences need standard reports. [What is a "standard report"?]

Accuracy is a must

Journalists are now competing with time. When an incident happened, the receivers today expect to get the news as soon as possible. The reports have to be concentrated, sorting out the most important information, and maintain the quality at the same time. [How can this be done?]

He thinks that dislike efficiency [who dislikes efficiency?], journalists should not count the accuracy as one of the reporting qualities. A quality can be improved or dropped. Accuracy is a must. It is as basic as “ABC”, leaving no room for others to question. [You say "journalists should not count the accuracy as one of the reporting qualities", followed directly by "Accuracy is a must". These two statements are logically opposed. The first implies accuracy is no important, the second implies that it is the most important.]
