Media groups demand police revoke exclusions

// Clement So York-kee, a journalism professor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, said the definition of “journalist” should not be decided by the police. “Otherwise the next step would be that news organizations have to be ‘friendly’ to the police in order to be officially recognized,” So said. “The Government’s Information Services Department previously included some non-mainstream news media in their press conferences. This spirit should be followed, not reversed,” he added. So also said online news outlets are becoming more significant in their role and function, adding that the public’s right to know depends on a free press and that this should not be unreasonably restricted. //
