In a more equitably organised society, the media are the hinge that connects the government and the people. The media should communicate between both sides.
That is what is written on paper, not reality. In reality, since TV became popular, media and journalists gained the up hand, and in anywhere with so-call free speech, government is blamed for anything that is wrong in society, government can't do anything right, people, even criminals and parasites can mock government, In a word, government is a b1tch.
To you the construction of the Three GOrge dam seems to be the most important,
There are 120 million people in SiChuan, you think even 5 million of them would put antique and environment above their livelihood?
It is only very few "elite" who cares, some of them really care, most of them just use the potential issues to make government look bad. OK?
Now, if they really care, they will not bash government if the project fails and government can't help the poor.
Also, future generations might wonder: why didn't the Chinese media inform the public and the government of the environmental impact, the silting and the dangers involved in the site being atop a seismic activity zone.
Who do you think media and journalists are? they inform government? The situation was studied by scientists for years, there were talks on media about the potential problems, like those fishes who bred upstream, and sinking sands on river banks, etc.
It is just that media was not allowed to control the topic. If they had had all the control, there would have been almost no talks about the benefit of the dam, 80% would be all about the right of those 1 million people and activists, plus 19% on the environment issue, and 1% about electricity, which sure would make government look like a monster.
Like I said, the priority of media is making government look like a @$$ h0le, either way, it is a game for them. Helping people is not what they care, they love talk abouting hum@n r1ght only because it can make government look bad, and it is good for their power.
