China’s ‘campaign against local media is intensifying’ in Hong Kong

Asia correspondent Adrian Brown says Hong Kong’s main broadcaster has seen sudden reshuffles from the top as journalists have been removed from their positions. “In the last three days, the squeeze on the main local broadcast here RTHK has been intensifying, there has been a wholesale shakeup of the top of this local broadcaster, journalists have been removed from their post,” he told Sky News. Mr Brown said the current guidelines for RTHK is to “remove programs that are on YouTube” which are over 12 months old and point to the Hong Kong riots. “The campaign against local media is intensifying, they haven’t gotten around to the international media yet but you’ll see more and more local news organisations now directly controlled by mainland concerns.”
