Media ownership in Hong Kong, due to Hong Kong's special colonial and post-colonial situation, is strongly concentrated, with Hong Kong's#xE3;#xAC;#xAC;public and independent media much weaker than their #xE2;#xAC;#xDC;Western#xE2;#xAC;" counterparts. This book explores the impact of this on how events and phenonema are portrayed by the Hong Kong media.#xE3;#xAC;#xAC; It considers production, text and reception of media content, showing how, in detail, media content is shaped and distorted by Hong Kong's media ownership structure.#xE3;#xAC;#xAC; It includes a detailed examination of the media's stigmatisation of youth, a group without power in Hong Kong, unable to put forward its own voice in the media.#xE3;#xAC;#xAC; The book makes comparisons with the situation in western countries, arguing that the limitations of a marketised media system as demonstrated by the example of Hong Kong are generally applicable.
