Nowadays social networking websites like facebook, twitter and weibo are so popular that nearly every individual in Hong Kong has an account. It is not surprising to see some famous reporters and anchors giving comments on political issues on their weibo. However, Sino Group Corporate Communications Assistant General Manager Ivan Yau, a former reporter in TVB, disagreed with this act.

Famous former reporter Lau Chung Kong had expressed his support on the Tiananmen Square Protest of 1989 when he was still working in TVB. And there are also some reporters giving their comment on the issue of naming mainland pregnant women as “pest”. But Yau thought it was a reckless and unsophisticated way to express their feeling. [Why is it reckless and unsophisticated?]

“I have never uploaded my daily videos or feelings on social networking websites. We have to be careful when speaking on web since it may cause serious influence. If their opinion are rash or contain incorrect information, it would harm our society,” said Yau.

Prof. Leung Tin Wai, the head of Journalism and Communications department agreed with Yau and said that reporters must not express their opinions impetuously.

“Any comments given by reporters are representing the media companies they work for. Giving their comments about news issues or criticizing their companies on web hastily is immoral. If I am the boss, I would definitely fire them if my reporters do this,” said Leung. [Great quote, good summary of the issue.]
