傳媒,你為甚麼踐踏言論自由?

星期二周融 8-6-2013 晴報

甚麼是言論自由,相信做傳媒的很清楚,不管你是老闆、總編輯、採主或是一個月入萬多二萬的記者攝記!

當一個人公開運用自己的言論自由,而可能違反了他服務機構的規定,究竟是言論自由「大」,還是機構規定「大」?

當前CIA僱員斯諾登冒着犯法和受美國政府窮追猛打的危險,運用他的言論自由,香港傳媒有誰不讚美他,視他為英雄?當然剛退下來的前警司劉達強不是斯諾登。星期日在旺角,當他站出來指摘他認為社會不公的現象時,他只不過是運用你、我及傳媒一樣有的基本人權,言論自由!

但傳媒的反應是甚麼?竟不是尊重他的言論自由權,雖然他可能(但也可能沒有)違反他身為公務員及警方人員的規定。而是一如美國政府,窮追猛打劉達強有否違反警方規則。假如他有違反守則,當然他要承受後果。但沒有人可以說,規則大於言論自由。受罰是代價,但這不是代表因此他沒有了言論自由,不能說話。

是否有些傳媒或記者編輯,甚至總編輯和老闆不喜歡,甚至憎恨他的言論,因為他不是站在傳媒「撑」的林慧思老師那一方?是否因此「忘記」了,甚至不管甚麼言論自由,群起而攻之?

香港傳媒,每次有人抨擊你們,有哪一次你們不是大聲疾呼,言論自由快守不住了。

但當傳媒自己以老闆或自我喜好為主,或出於無知或其他,踐踏他人的言論自由,甚至給人一個感覺在想「害佢一鑊」,你們知道你在做甚麼?你是在一刀一刀謀殺言論自由!

Shame on you,香港傳媒。

    TO Mr. Robert Chow,
    Do not agree with your stated opinion that “Central Occupation” will cause disruptions in economic activities. First, economy overrides every other issues in our society? Of course not. Second, what do you think of the damages and disruptions to the economy and society and people in general caused by those rascals and irresponsible accountants, finance people on Wall St., London, HK … bankers, security analysts …. for the financial crisis in 2008 (and all previous financial crises/scandals or accounting book cooking over the past years since we have so-called financial markets)? None of those rubbish went to jail, none of them was held responsible for their extremely irresponsible, ridiculous and indecent behavior. Third, take a look at the economy now. Everything is just back to normal or ever “better”! Why always use the “economy” as a shield or counterargument to social movements?! I do not find you or your buddies convincing, moral, ethical, or logical. You only know how to talk. Thank you.
    AC
