Bai Yansong: Suning Coverage is not meant to “Move China”

Bai Yansong- Suning Coverage is not meant to Touch China

Bai Yansong, CCTV news anchor for “Moving China,” answered a series of questions at the Communication University of China. One student raised the question, “After the Suning shooting was broadcast, some questioned why you called the shooter a “fifty-something old man” on your program. Since there were four dead and five injured, why not call him a criminal suspect?” Bai responded that when he had first heard the news, there remained many question marks about the case. “When facts aren’t clear, one must first adopt a neutral term. Doing news does not mean emotionally moving China. The emotional impact will happen naturally.” Netizens were overwhelmingly supportive of his impartial stance.

    Dunno how to take this.
    It’s either bullshit or a good step in the right direction. My heart wants it to be the latter.

    Too much bullshit Fox News style reporting happens in China. Glad to see this guy purports to have some journalistic integrity.
