Reporters lose ethical high ground among public, says Li Fang

The functions of audiences and news media are subverted under the rise of social media, which leads to reporters losing the ethical high ground among the public, said Li Fang.

Reporters no longer hold first hand information, as people now have smartphones that allow the sharing of events nearby. Most updated news, photos, and even video can be upload to differnet social media and posted before the traditional news media could report. The death of Michael Jackson, for example, was reported by CNN after Twitter had this news for about eight hours, while the crash of high speed trains in Wenzhou was reported through Weibo earlier than was done by the Xinhua News Agency by about 20 minutes.


"In the past, the ethical level of the public was defined by the reporters since they decided what, what comments, and how to report to their audiences according to their professional skills. But everyone can be the reporter now," said Li Fang, the deputy editor of Tencent Holdings, at a talk with Hong Kong Shue Yan University students. [When?]


Different angles, newspoints, and comments can be shared due to the rise of social media by people all over the world, regardless of education, objectivity, or ethics. With a large amount of users, the opinions from the social media become the main trend influencing the public."People are now easily affected by social media," said Li. (Those news become too shallow that audiences almost blame on the phenomenon but do not cover the reason behind a the event ??? - What is this sentence trying to say?)
