1. Lam, Hing Po. How do perceptions about the presence or absence of press freedom ideology in job candidates affect Hong Kong media companies' hiring decisions?.

Degree: 2018, University of Newcastle

Professional Doctorate - Doctor of Business Administration (DBA)

Hong Kong is a highly liberal society with strong social belief of press freedom. Such freedom is protected by article 27 on the Basic Law of Hong Kong which states that Hong Kong residents shall have freedom of speech, of the press and of publication; freedom of association, of assembly, of procession and of demonstration; and the right and freedom to form and join trade unions, and to strike. The majority of Hong Kong media company is privately held with diverse political views. The government only has ownership on Radio Television Hong Kong. Hong Kong was ranked 69th and China was ranked 176th out of 180 territories ranked by the Reporters without Borders on the world Press Freedom Index in 2016. According to the article 35 of Chinese constitution, citizens are guaranteed with rights of freedom of press, assembly, association, demonstration and publications. However, Administration of Press, publication, radio, film and television of the People’s Republic of China under state council which manages, owns, supervises and monitors all news organization requires news workers in China to faithfully perform the role as mouthpiece for the party under all circumstances. There is a different practice of media industry and different political system as well as different ideology training on journalism between Hong Kong and China. As such, such difference in the ideology leads to potential conflict of job expectations towards role of media between the editor perspective in Hong Kong non-Mainland China owned company and journalists trained in mainland Chinese media system. The research problem goal is to exam whether journalists trained in mainland China communist party controlled media industry and ideology training would have problems to adapt to work in Hong Kong liberal media environment. The research finding suggests that the pure background in connection with the Chinese Communist Party either as a member of the party or a member of the Chinese Youth League is not a consideration or a concern for editors in Hong Kong non mainland China owned media company to make hiring decision. The main concern is on the socialization with other colleagues and different perspective on news judgment while handling news content.
