Reporters should keep eye on governor’s response

By Tam Yat Pang

Nov. 20 Executive Producer of Public and Current Affairs Section in RTHK, Ma Chim Wai James said that Hong Kong’s political environment was changing, reporters should be more sensitive to the details in each social issue.

Worked for more than 20 years as a journalist, James Ma said there was a new environment occurred between the media and politics in recent years. He added, there was an increase of response from Chinese governors on some controversial local topics, reporters should stay clear minded and understand the underlying of those responses.

“Governor from the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the HKSAR commented on the survey about Hong Kong citizens’ identity in early this year was a good example, the Chinese governor said the survey was not scientific even it was conducted by the University of Hong Kong Public Opinion Programme. Followed by argument between the director of the survey, Chung Ting Yiu and the Chinese governor, this is a quite obvious move because Chinese governor seldom comment on these sensitive issues in the past,” said Ma.

Regarding the big talk from Chinese governors, Chinese media have also respond more firmly on some Hong Kong issues. Ma took a public opinion survey done by Chinese University in Hong Kong last month as an example, he said that Global Times, an official Chinese publication has criticized on the survey about national identification of Hong Kong people.

“Actually identities problem of Hong Kong people has always been an issue since 1997, but why are the Chinese officials giving more comments in recent years? I believe you all will have an answer in your mind,” Ma said.

According to Ma’s speech, reporters should also pay attention to some wordings from the officials. He said, “maintenance of social stability and harmonious society” were often mentioned by the Chinese government, then reporters should noticed that Chinese society was in an “unstable and not harmony situation.”

“When the government strongly promote the idea of social stability or harmonious society, it is the meaning of the society was not stable and not harmony. According to the New York Times, the Chinese government budgeted US$111 billion for social stability maintenance in 2012, US$5 billion more than the military budget. So you should understand the hidden message of these wordings, as you are the reporter,” said Ma.
