Since the handover of HKSAR in 1997, self censorship of media has been a controversial topic in society. Ivan Yau, a former senior reporter of TVB News, did not see any significant changes in media after the handover.

Yau believed that self-censorship is not common in media in society. “I did not find any scientific evidence for downgrading the freedom of press before and after the handover,” said Yau.


“The reporting style has changed in Hong Kong. However, the belief of being a reporter remains unchanged. We still need to monitor the government and report the truth,” said Yau. He believed that criticizing the government is an important role for the media.


He emphasized that if it is the truth, journalists has the responsibility to tell the truth to the public. “If your boss did not agree with you, then it is time for you to find another company,” said Yau.
