A veteran journalist, Mr Ng established the news agency in the summer of 2015 with a crowd-funding campaign that raised HK$4.75m ($607,000; £471,000) in less than three months.

By early 2016, he had hired the 10-strong editorial team.

Our very own Terrexgate and the return of “cracked” PRC trains to China were first reported by Factwire, not by TMG or mothership, the alternative media publishers that have sugar daddies. Terry’s Online Channel does what it can with some help from progressives. But the vast majority of its readers believe in free lunches.
