陶傑 – 西方新聞霸權

非洲加納政府軍警殲剿來非法開採黃金的中國人,迄今擊斃數十人,拘捕幾百,場面相當慘烈。

這個時候,正是考驗香港的新聞傳媒,除了有多「自由」,還有多「專業」的歷史時刻。

香港的中國左傾愛國「知識份子」和「學者」,平時喜歡開論壇,或在冷氣間的辦公室寫論文,聲討「西方文化霸權」,包括「西方新聞霸權」,指摘英美的CNN、路透社、BBC,「壟斷」了新聞觀點,令中國人和第三世界,受到「西方霸權」的新聞傳媒潛移默化的「洗腦」。

To me it was clear that this was a political decision. For seven months, he had basically blocked me from writing any China stories for the newspaper. During that period, I only had two stories in the China pages of the newspaper–one on panda bears and one on compensation for AIDS victims. Some two dozen other story suggestions went unanswered by the China Desk–in one case a story was approved, but the editor told me Wang had overruled him. A half-dozen emails to Wang pleading to write more for the newspaper went unanswered.
