Reassurance after end of free press in Hong Kong: ‘No news is good news’
Hong Kong’s independent critical newspaper Apple Daily is shutting down after several journalists were arrested in a police raid. The Hong Kong people are reassured: “No news is good news”.
Apple Daily subscriber Yuen is happy that no new newspaper has been launched after journalists were charged with ‘conspiracy to endanger national security’. “That probably means then that there is nothing to report. We can assume that everything is going well.”
