    Oh my, how does a free press able to save lifes? Can educate me? Cause it seems like the amount of information coming out makes things worst. Did the free press come out with some cure by being free? Freedom of information has no relationship with curing the virus the last time I checked. Function of the press is to deliver a curated form of verified information. That's why before the news hits the desk, there is an editor to go through it. When reporting becomes overburdened with unlimited flow of information, its starting to get so confusing… Eg; CHINA vs US, people in China feels relatively safe while people in US feels tonnes of anxiety.. Whats the cure for that? MORE INFORMATION? life is complicated as it is, don't make it even more complicated for the people below. Top tiers usually can get through it, those left at the bottom tends to feel the brunt of it… Sensible reporting not free reporting. 🙂

    To be honest, I watched some of their reports at the beginning of the outbreak. But I did not think their reports are professional or objective. Many of the reports were just for eyeball-catching. During that time, rumors fulfilled the Chinese social media, but voices from epidemiologists and scientists should be put in high priority. Therefore, their misleading reports did do harm at that period of time. Anyway, we believed they will soon appear in public after the crisis. But they do not deserve any awards.

    In my opinion you should have a look at what's going on in Algeria and the way the local government is repressing the freedom of speech and how he put in prison free journalists and anyone who dare to say something.
    The local government made use of the pandemic to strengthen its position and pass new laws that limits the freedom of speech to anyone.
    It's becoming almost impossible to breath here and as always no media station pays attention to what's going on in Algeria.
    I personally dennonciate your silence as journalists of the free world and hold accountable for not rising the red flag while people are persecuted just for daring saying the cruel truth..

    Thank you DW news, specially the DW director explanation at 7:15 about the “reason for hold back the true news”. I had that question for very long time!?! …. Also, there is a very good Hong Kong doctor. Always sharing the real pandemic medical knowledge to general public in utube. (His channel: Dr.Rex 醫學幼稚園) Very positive knowledge with kindness explanation. His video also got “yellow tag” which is alert him about content. …Thus, I always put “like” in his video. ..???!

    USA and the West are practicing "freedumb" of media.
    Freedom is a joke! FREEDOM is not free.
    Fox News? Cunning as a fox!
    CNN? Cunning N Nasty!
    Don't be fooled. It's all about MIGHTY $$$$$
    On the other side, you have to take responsibility what you are splitting out of your mouth/pen. Anything you put down or said will be punished if that's prove to be harmful to public good. They believe talk is cheap.

    USA is here for a good time and not for a long time.
    China is looking far reaching horizon with a rainbow in mind.
