Two western journalists were killed in Syria last month and the incident has raised concern about journalists’ safety problem among the society. David Schlesiner, chairman of Thomson Reuters China said that journalists have to understand how far they can push to go to get a story on the general assembly hosted by HKSYU today.


David said that journalists in all over the world are dangerous. Therefore, journalists should be caution when they are reporting news as “no story is worth a life” under no circumstances. He said that if the story is physically dangerous such as places suffering from war, journalists should better put themselves in a saver place as he preferred losing the news than losing one’s life for it.


Reporting news in China has been regarded as dangerous as there are many restrictions given from Chinese government to the journalists. However, he said that it is possible to report sensitive stories safely with being sure with the sources reported and to be unbiased in the reporting. He said that journalists should understand their limitation on freedom so that they won’t suffer from deportation or imprisonments by China because of the sensitive content of news they reported. Also, he said that journalists should protect the news sources from the investigation of Chinese government.


Although reporting news of China might be dangerous, he said that there is no self censorship in Thomson Reuters. He said that one of the blogs in Reuters is being banned in China because of its contents. As a result, he said that Thomson Reuters are not able to sell their information and news sources to Xinhua directly due to the restriction of China. However, he believed that “as long as we show that we are not writing a one side story, Chinese government will respect us.” He emphasized that reporting the facts with accuracy is the most important thing that journalists need to follow.
