Reporters should cover stories with accuracy

By Tam Yat Pang

Oct. 30 Deputy Chief Editor of Hong Kong China News Agency, Candy Lo said that Hong Kong’s media nowadays are reporting in a too extreme style and the sources of news are not accurate enough.

Lo said, polarization is found in today’s media, either over banning government’s policies like Apple Daily or some may over supporting like Wen Wei Po. According to Lo’s speech, reporters should equip themselves with critical thinking, do not blindly follow the mainstream ideas and have the “whole picture of the society” in mind.

Other than that, Lo said that news media today are too reckless in double checking the sources. Lo added, as news agency will send out news stories to different subscribed media, accuracy of the news is the highest priority in covering a story.

“For example, Asia Television has reporter the dead of Former China President Jiang Zemin mistakenly, and that is the problem of fact checking. So our news agency is the first media to clarify the news and send out the true message to different news media,” said Lo.

Lo added, reporters should have investigated in depth before releasing the news. Lo said that in 2005, when there was a rumor spreading around about the chief excutive, Tung Chee Hwa was going to resign, but there was no confirmation at that time. And Lo found out that Tung was in the list of the China People’s Political Consultative Conference, so she covered about this fact and have gave a strong proof for the rumor, and Tung turned out to be the vice chairman of the conference.

In short, Lo said that reporters should be clear about their position and duties, keep a clear mind and “whole picture of the society” so that they can cover a accurate news story.
