  • CGTN published this video item, entitled “Why do some news media ‘love’ Hong Kong so much?” – below is their description.

    Some news media outlets have been constantly talking about Hong Kong in recent years when referring to China. Whether through text or video, they have repeatedly showed their “concerns” over Hong Kong. However, their “concerns” are expressed through selective use of images, one-sided rhetoric, and intentional editing. By deliberately setting up an opposition between residents and the government, these news media outlets used the “Hong Kong card” to attack the central government and drag Hong Kong’s society into a worsening dilemma.

    Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.

    Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
