@Columba_in_a_Currach, I have been following the coverage in the Hong Kong Free Press.
@Martin54, reporters are the ones who tell us (sometimes at great personal risk) "what is actually going on and what will be done about it". One cannot have freedom without a free press. Dictators try to stifle the news media; crooked officials love it when there's no one keeping tabs on them. Indifference like yours plays into their hands.

Not my counter. Beware of what you accuse. The only instance of reporting I can think of that ended a war - only after millions had died - was in Vietnam. Any others? Reporting works in the plural West, nowhere else.
