WSJ Chinese and Reuters Chinese have zero coverage over Lam Wing-kee's story

When Lam Wing-kee's story is attracting international attention from media inside and outside of China, WSJ Chinese and Reuters had no literally zero coverage on the news.


 


In contrast, NYTimes Chinese, FT Chinese and SCMP Chinese all have great coverage on the story. Notably, FT Chinese is currently not blocked in China and should have the most incentive to self-censor and suppress the related reporting; SCMP Chinese is currently owned by Alibaba's Jack Ma, a famous entrepreneur in mainland. Despite such pressure, all those above media carried out candid reporting on Lam Wing-kee's news.


Perhaps more notably, even Chinese state media has reported about Lam Wing-kee's story. Global Times published an article stating Lam Wing-kee's story while criticizing that Lam Wing-kee doesn't provide any evidence. The article was deleted. Mainstream Chinese media also reported on the story and unsurprisingly all taking the government's side. But still they do have reporting on the story.


WSJ and Reuters international version in English both widely reported on Lam Wing-kee. It's unfathomable why WSJ Chinese and Reuters Chinese will have no coverage at all, if not for self-censorship.
