No objective reporting in our MSM on protests

hk protests

When our mainstream media reports on Hong Kong protests (or in fact, any protests around the world), they always take the mono-dimensional tone that it is “disruptive”, “businesses are affected”, there is a “political stalemate” or “political crisis”, and a hundred other negative connotations.

I have never read an objective opinion piece or a piece of neutral reporting by the ST on the Hong Kong protests. All the articles are laden with connotations that it has brought the country to a standstill, the protestors have caused distress and disruption, etc.

Nowhere in our MSM do I read an objective analysis of WHY the protestors are protesting, whether their cause is JUST, whether they need to refine their message, etc. All I see is a one-sided, pro-MNC, anti-democracy angle taken by our MSM.

It is very sad.
