【禁聞】外記:中國新聞狀況持續惡化

【新唐人2011年5月21日訊】在中國,記者現場採訪突發事件常常受到當局的阻攔。本週四,中國的外國記者俱樂部,發佈一項對成員新聞機構的調查報告,報告顯示,國際駐華記者的新聞報導狀況正持續惡化。請看報導。

由在北京的“外國記者俱樂部”進行的年度調查,涵蓋了225個駐華國際新聞成員機構中的108份反饋資料。根據這份報告,回覆在華新聞報導狀況持續惡化的,達到94%。

“外國記者俱樂部”在一份電子郵件中指出:有70%的新聞機構在回覆調查中證實,過去一年,他們的工作都曾受到不同程度的騷擾甚至暴力阻撓。

一名西班牙駐華記者魏先生向“新唐人”表示,新聞同行受到中共當局騷擾的情況一直都有,不是最近敏感事件多才開始的。而差別在於,現在的中共對待外國記者比較不客氣,直接挑明外國記者不可以在中國如何作為。

西班牙駐華記者魏先生:”我在中國已經九年了,我有過警察威脅﹔我有過警察帶我去公安局﹔我有過那些小痞子、黑社會都打擾過我的工作﹔我有過有人開車跟著我,很近 很遠,幾個車都有。這個不是現在的事情,這個一直都有。”

曾經從事新聞採訪及編輯工作多年的自由作家昝愛宗也表示,一個法治政府、公民社會,肯定要保障新聞言論自由,以及人權。他說,只有法制才能保障人民的基本權利和普世價值。

原《中國海洋報》記者昝愛宗:“我認為,好多外國記者也好,中國記者也好,一直都受到不是太順利採訪的那種待遇,一般採訪都很不順利。你要是歌功頌德,吹地方或是政府作了哪些政績,他們會很配合,很熱情的。如果你要是採訪那些負面報導,採訪尖銳問題、突發事件,那肯定是一直受到干涉的。最大的一個反映就是沒有新聞自由。”

原貴州《畢節日報》的記者李元龍,因為在互聯網發表文章,抨擊社會醜惡現象、表達自由意志與民主思想,而被中共國安機關認定涉嫌「煽動顛覆國家政權」,並判處兩年有期徒刑。李元龍在2007年9月出獄。他在接受《新唐人》採訪時表示,中共阻礙新聞言論自由猶如火藥桶被摀蓋,最終受害的將會是中共自己。

原貴州《畢節日報》記者李元龍:“(中共)想蓋、想塞,是塞不住的,尤其是現在這個互聯網時代,進入了公民記者的時代,好多真相是塞蓋不住的,它只不過早一點晚一點的問題,大家都會知道的。這個火藥桶裡面積蓄的力量會越來越大,總有一天會衝開蓋子!”

“香港新聞記者協會”前任主席譚志強向《自由亞洲電臺》表示,最近一兩年大陸新聞自由環境惡化,基本原因是跟中共第18屆全國代表大會有關。

China's Press Freedom Continues to Deteriorate

In China, live reporting of emergencies is often

blocked by authorities.

Thursday, Foreign Correspondents Club of China issued

a report, which showed that the international

news reporting situation in China is deteriorating.

The annual report incorporated 108 survey responses

from its 225 news agency members.

According to the report, 94% of responses believe

the situation is deteriorating.

An email of Foreign Correspondents Club of China

says 70% of survey responses state that

over the past year, their work has been subjected to

harassment or even physical interference.

Mr. Wei, a Spanish reporter, told NTDTV there has

always been government harassment of reporters.

It wasn't because of the recent slew of emergencies.

The difference is now the CCP is not as polite and

is telling foreign reporters directly what they

can and cannot do in China.

Mr. Wei: I have been in China 9 years. I have been

threatened by police. I have been taken to the police

station. I have been harassed by ruffians and triads.

I have been followed even by multiple cars.

This is not new, it has always happened.

Freelance writer Zan Aizong, former reporter and

news editor, says that government with rule of law,

a civil society, must protect freedom of the press

and human rights. He said that only rule by law could

protect people's basic rights and universal values.

Zan Aizong (former reporter of China Ocean News):

“I believe many foreign and Chinese reporters have

experienced difficulty in the interview process.

Most interviews do not go smoothly. If you suck up

or praise the local officials they will cooperate,

be very helpful. If the news is negative,

on a sensitive topic, or emergency situation,

there will be interference.

The biggest reaction is no freedom of the press.”

Former Bijie Daily reporter, Li Yuanlong, was sentenced

to two years in jail for “inciting subversion of state

power”, because he published articles on the internet

exposing ugliness of Chinese society and expressing

democratic views He was released in September 2007.

He told NTDTV that the CCP's blocking of the press freedom

is like plugging a powder keg.

Eventually the CCP will be the one hurt.

Li Yuanlong (former Bijie Daily reporter): “[The CCP]

wants to cover, wants to plug. It can't be plugged.

Especially now in the internet age, we've entered

the era of citizen journalists. Many truths cannot be

covered up, sooner or later everyone will know.

The pressure in this powder keg will grow and grow.

One day it will blow its lid!

Tan Zhiqiang, former chairman of HK Journalists

Association, told Radio Free Asia: press freedom's

recent deterioration—the basic reason is related to

the 18th CCP National Congress.
