Hong Kong's pro-democracy newspaper Apple Daily closes with 'painful farewell'

06/2021

//Tsui Lokman, an assistant professor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong’s School of Journalism and Communication, said that watching the events unfold was like “watching a terminal patient die… Apple Daily was not just another news organization. It was the loudest, the most critical news organization out there,” Tsui said. “This is a critical blow to press freedom, but not the end of it. There are still good people, good organizations, trying to do good journalism. But it's a lot tougher now than before. Everyone will now be careful to not touch any invisible lines because it's not even clear what the lines are.”//
