HK: Int’l media coverage shows PAP got point on media?

In Hong Kong, Media on 14/11/2019 at 2:05 pm

Once-peaceful pro-democracy demonstrations have morphed into violent confrontations with neither side seems willing to back down. Int’l media puts the blamel largely on the HK authorities, especially the police.

Did you know that the Hongkie police are really very well behaved, restraint?

The Economist, no friend of the Honkie authorities and policesaid:

Hong Kong is a relatively modest user [of tear gas]. In the first five months of protests, its police fired nearly 6,000 rounds of tear-gas. Data are sketchy, but that seems a fairly modest figure—far fewer, for example, than were used on just one day in Paris last December against gilets jaunes (yellow-jacket) protesters.

Funny the ways of ang moh media. Very hard on gilets jaunes protesters. But very supportive of the Hongkie hooligans: HK: What MSM and alt media don’t tell us.

So maybe PAP got point on int’l media having their own agendas with objectivity being set aside if it doesn’t fit the agenda or narrative being peddled? Ang moh coverage of HK riots shows that the PAP govt has a point on its need to as its running dog, a constructive, nation-building media to help it fix the Oppo: Fixing the Oppo: Constructive, nation-building media and academics at work
