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.
