  • Ten years after the handover, this article examines the macro and collective consequences of self-censorship, change of media ownership and, two major issues of press freedom during the transition period. The article argues that journalists working in media organizations acquired by ‘pro-China’ business tend to steer the media toward a ‘neutral’ and ‘objective’ position. The result is a new modal center in the spectrum of political ideology and reduced diversity in the marketplace of opinions.
