"The Pulse" is politics. What's happening in the Legislative Council and on the streets right now.

"The Pulse" is the media, informing us how well or badly our press and broadcast organisations diagnose and reflect the society around us.

"The Pulse" is insightful, in-depth reports and interviews on current issues - examining those issues in depth, looking behind and beyond the news.

Its focus is on the timely. The Now.

Keep your eye ... and your finger ... on "The Pulse".

Policy Address & discussion on press freedom with Keith Richburg & Chris Yeung 00:21:37 2018-10-13
On Wednesday, Chief Executive Carrie Lam delivered her second Policy Address. Her 40-minute speech highlighted several controversial policies and projects. And she doesn’t seem to mind courting controversy. “Dissatisfaction was expected”, she said, arguing that tough decisions had to be made. According to a University of Hong Kong survey, the public gave the Address only 48.5 marks, 13.9 marks fewer than her first one. Lam’s own popularity has also dropped to 47.6, an all-time low since she became Chief Executive.

Just two weeks ago, and for the first time since the Handover, the Security Bureau used the Societies Ordinance to outlaw the Hong Kong National Party, a political group that has advocated Hong Kong independence. Secretary for Security John Lee warned that any act to destroy China’s sovereignty would cross an “untouchable red line”. However, he did not give a clear answer when asked whether people sharing the group’s views on social media or journalists reporting or interviewing its members would be breaking the law. However an indication of the government’s intentions in this matter when a prominent foreign correspondent was denied renewal of working visa. With me in the studio are Keith Richburg, formerly with the Washington Post in a number of capacities. He is now Director of Hong Kong University’s Journalism & Media Studies Centre and Chris Yeung, another veteran journalist and Chairperson of the Hong Kong Journalists’ Association to talk about the state of press freedom in Hong Kong.
