Top stories and controversies[ edit ] Several major news stories and controversies appeared throughout the campaign. The first is that wins became more important.
How would you define it in the spectrum of the Hong Kong media? For some, independence means taking no stance. But we can't take this approach. Many media organisations have leaned towards Beijing, while some have become the voice of the government. It is natural for us to choose to balance this view in the market, rather than just trying to present a balanced view.
By independent, I mean we are independent from the power of the government, the pressure of Beijing or the influence of the business sector.
What would you say to those who see you as coming under strong US influence and as part of the so-called anti-revolutionary force in Hong Kong?
They are entitled to their opinion, of course. But if they think we are subverting the government, this is ridiculous. We might voice more criticism of the government when it intervenes in the market or when it is not pushing hard enough for universal suffrage.
But how do we subvert the government by so doing? We are just taking a stance. It is our role as a member of the media to supervise the government. The saying about US influence is not true. But do I share a lot of the values of the US?
Democracy, freedom, rule of law: They have become not just American values, but values that are shared by other parts of the world. There are people who go as far as saying I am a CIA agent. What can I say? Do you think there are inherent contradictions in the way you run your publications?
On the one hand, you uphold high-sounding aspirations such as democracy, but on the other, you also get a fair bit of criticism for sensationalism and questionable journalistic ethics. We have to sell [copies of our publications] in order to get our voice heard.
If we don't sell well, it is futile to take whatever stance we take.
So, the primary objective is to sell. This will ensure our voice is heard by the people. We sometimes do go overboard. We have done things wrong. But for all of these, we take the responsibility. We stand up to apologise for our wrongdoings, correct them, learn from our lessons and seek to improve.
At the same time, you also need to take into account the fact that because of the stance we take, we have a lot of forces - overtly or covertly - working against us.
Our rivals can do a lot of things to smear and discredit us.
