- Well Structured
With Hong Kong’s lively, pro-free speech newspaper Apple Daily forced to shut its doors, and its founder and other employees arrested, press freedoms are under attack in the Chinese territory, as Jennifer Jett reports in The New York Times. The crackdown springs from an ambiguous law enacted in June 2020 meant to suppress opposition to Chinese rule. Hong Kong’s public broadcaster RTHK is also under pressure, with staffing changes and canceled shows. The Chinese government is considering more laws to restrict press freedoms.
