Al Jazeera – 101 East: Right to Report: Press Freedom in Hong Kong


July 28,2022

One of Hong Kong’s most popular newspapers no longer exists; its founder sits behind bars.

Some journalists are fleeing the city, afraid they could be next to see the inside of a prison cell.

Since the implementation of a national security law, dozens of journalists have been arrested and major news outlets forced to close.

In the last year, the territory’s press freedom ranking hit a record low. While authorities insist that the press can continue to operate freely, critics say the government is treating journalism as a crime.
