Regarding the reports related to the high speed train accident that happened in Wenzhou on the 23rd of July this year, new media did a better job than traditional media.[A better job at what? What was the job?] People spread the latest news in Weibo and the pictures told the truth of the story. Qian Gang, the University of Hong Kong's Journalism and Media Studies Centre's Co-Director of the China Media Project, said Weibo was the gift for China.

Usually when huge accidents happen in China, only the official media is allowed to report the news. For instance, the 723 high speed train accident could only be covered by CCTV and Xinhua News Agency. Even if news companies sent out their own reporters, they were asked to recall them.

"It doesn't matter if you send your own reporter or not, they will ask you to recall them. All the reports about the 723 incident were by official media," said Qian Gang, "When you look into Chinese media, you know there is nothing much you could do about them, but luckily there are still reporters who have their sense of mission."

Warm stories from the 723 incident were reported days after the crash and Wen Jiabao, the Premier and Party Secretary of the State Council of the People's Republic of China, visited the scene. Somehow, there is no live feed of his speech that day. The only live broadcasting channel was Weibo.

"Even CCTV did not do the live show of Wen's speech. But Weibo did a great job there. The reporters updated their Weibo nearly every minute to tell the audience what Wen had just said," QianGang said.

"In order to make a breakthrough in the China Media Industry, we have to depend on two things. First of all it's the power of the internet, but not just simply relying on Weibo. The second thing is the conscience of reporters. It requires the cooperation of the inner and outer force to make a breakthrough," said Qian Gang. [What is the inner force? What is the outer force?]

Citizens posted reports from Apple Daily and Oriental Daily on Weibo about the 723 incident. Qian Gang admitted that it helped free information flow in China on the net. Qian Gang concluded, "Weibo is a gift for China."
