Gundogan: Freedom of speech is dead. 

It’s so crazy. The show isn’t influential at all. One will forget about it one or two weeks later. Now, the censorship even makes the show bigger…

Sigurdsson: Alas, Hong Kong is going to be “harmonised” by China sooner or later. CRHK, ATV, CCTVB, and most of the newspapers, basically the media, have no credibility.

(*Netizens gave Hong Kong Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB) the nickname CCTVB, which is composed of China Central Television (CCTV) and TVB, as the station is pro-Beijing.)

One thought on “Hong Kong radio host resigned as his show about Tiananman Massacre was censored

  1. When mothers and fathers are labeled as “counter-revolutionaries” and the “nation” becomes more important than humanity, then we must worry about the future of HK. The Cultural Revolution part II is fast approaching HK, will we see the day when children will “rat out” their own parents and send them to the gallows all in the name of country?
