(Ha! So you're Shakespeare now. A titillating headline, nonetheless. But your lead was disappointing. It contained too much background information with no news at all. What Gregory So said was not news. The news was that Raymond Wong, being the Chairman of the concerned committee, didn't know what So meant by saying that the license issue was still in the procedural process. Wong disagreed that the Beijing's concern was among the reasons for the delay and that was also news. Grasp the meat and put them in your lead.)

Hong Kong citizens have been longing for a new platform for watching a free television channel, yet after 1,000 days of waiting, it is still far from the end of the end point. The Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development Gregory So Kam-leung said that there is a problem in the procedure of the issue of a new license.

Raymond R. Wong, SBS, the Chairperson of the Communications Authority Broadcast Codes of Practice Committee, said that he did not know what the procedure really is, when he spoke in a seminar in Hong Kong Shue Yan University.

“The previous authority (the Broadcasting authority) and the on-going authority (the Communications Authority) had both suggested to issue a new license,” said Wong, “ and they had finished their part of job.”

Professor Leung Tin Wai, department head of the journalism and communications department of HKSYU, questioned that if the issue is under some kind of “political pressure”, but Wong denied such hypothesis.

“The three applicants of the license are all businessmen, and they know what to do after they get the license,” said Wong, “you know, it is talking about billions of dollars. If you don’t have the money, don’t even think about it. However, if you would put that money in, will you be daring enough to fight against the government?”

For the opposing voice within the present broadcasters, Wong said that they have obvious reasons, and he again reminds people not to relate the opposing powers within the industry with Beijing.

“ATV has an obvious reason to say no to the new competitor, and for TVB, it is obvious that they don’t want a new member to share the same meal, “said Wong.

However, he reminds the two broadcasters, that there was not a guarantee of profit for both of the free television license holders.
