    I don't think you have actually listened to the BBC radio broadcast that has been put on YouTube. If you have, please tell us which part (after 4:12) shows a "typical Mainland Chinese view"? That Cantonese and Mandarin are mutually unintelligible? That some Hong Kong people look down on Mainland people? That while average wealth among Hong Kong people is higher than those on the Mainland, it is the Mainland people who are flaunting their wealth?

    As the reporter, Juliana Liu says in the broadcast, she wanted to interview more Baptist University students, but solely because of her surname, most refused to be interviewed. Where do you think the bias is?

    But thanks for the Youtube click. It's an interesting and well written broadcast.

    You can choose to believe everything she and others
    who have been either brainwashed or have whatever ties or origins
    who have been penetrating the media and spread their views....

    Don't you think it is funny even students do not trust a
    BBC HK correspondence?
    Liu is also a local HK surname.
    Don't be tricked too easily.

    Many media in HK ,too has pretended to be unbiased
    but in reality doing those who are in power and Beijing some favour.

    Those in HK long enough should smell something.

    Increasing number of unaware local people and non-locals
    are being slowly brainwashed that
    HK people are wrong,
    activists are wrong,
    resent towards PRC is wrong,
    asking for democratic elections of our leaders is wrong,
    removing unfair restrains in legislative elections are wrong....
    .... until one day HK get so corrupted, controlled, assimilated, engulfed,
    into China and the world lost the once Pearl of Orients...
    or even suppressed like Tibet...
    and then probably no one have sympathy towards HK people anymore.

    Be warned that increasing number of students from PRC
    are studying in HK universities,
    including the communications...
    and they will soon take up the role as "reporter".
    increasing the pace to further xxxk up
    the already eroding objectivity and freedom of news/Information....

    Well, the whole world is in the same boat in similar way.
    I do not trust the media in USA either ...
    some dirty relationships of the corporations & politicians
    have made the media, newspaper / TV/ radio....
    presenting a not-very-true world to people.

    Steffie my darling, the press everywhere is biased. The BBC is one of the least biased media sources though. If you have evidence complain directly to them (but you will need firm evidence) and they will change their report.

    Which part of the "From Our Own Correspondent with Juliana Liu 18/02/2012" do you not like? I've listened to it and find it a fair summary of events a year ago. 'From our own correspondent' is a personal summary from a reporter which is a reporting style not found that much in other news outlets, but I don't think you can criticise her for that.

    I've asked several times for you to point to areas of her reporting that are biased, but I am still waiting.

    LOOK.
    3 Chinese people reports the phenomenon of
    the PRC Chinese smuggling baby formula powder from across the world to PRC.

    Amy Qin & Shi Da (Beijing) and Hilda Wang(in Hong Kong)

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/26/wo...mid=fb-nytimes

    Sounds very just and fair?

    Any thing missing?

    Did you see them mention the severe adverse effects
    on the daily life to HK parents ,
    and social-economical "biosphere" in Hong Kong?
    (apart from shortage,
    problems on transportation, border-crossing,
    unhealthy numbers of typical tourist-shops replacing shops needed by locals,
    surge of rents, clashes arise from the unruly behaviours
    of the milk powder shoppers & smugglers, etc.)

    Try hiring more PRC people in media industries and soon
    you will not hear voices of local people.

    You can continue to trust what
    Ms Liu and or other PRC people reports.

    Just be very careful
    whether they really investigate thoroughly,
    whether they present with real fair tone and
    whether they really cover enough angles and voices of HK people...

    When they claim they are in Hong Kong,
    or presenting as HK correspondence, etc,
    the world will be led to think they are presenting full picture and true voices of Hong Kong people.

    What they omit will cause the world
    to see/hear/know less and less of
    full facts & true grievances of local people here.

    I am one of the many Hong Kong who
    dislike the misleading phenomenon.

    Actually this month also see even local media
    misinterpret an local incidence of
    the PRC commit minions posted as a local group
    who hassle FaLungGung who voice their grievances in HK.
    A local teacher shout back. But the media shows only distorted biased presentation and painted her black. Minions gather people and parents to attack her by sending hate mails to her workplace(a school) and gave her great problems.

    PRC minions use the media against people who point out problem/mistakes/injustice....

    Pro-PRC biased people have penetrated different organizations and media. Some are paid to do so.
    SO SAD.

    Get some HK reporters to write about their "hardship" in these international news outlets then.

    Or does the mainland also stop Hong Kong people from writing meaningful news reports and publish them?

    PS: The NY Times article you posted above is about China and their global search for infant formula (the title should have given it away). It's not about HK. The part about HK will probably sound laughable to the rest
    of the world:

    In April, the [Hong Kong] customs police held a news conference to announce that a two-day “antismuggling operation” had resulted in the breaking up of three “syndicates,” the arrest of 10 people and the seizure of nearly 220 pounds of formula worth $3,500.

    maybe, bbc should re-employ Chip Tsao who is probably more HK bias as well as has similar racial stereotyping ideology as Jeremy clarkson
