Pingguo ribao 蘋 果 日 報 (Apple Daily On-line Newspaper)

Ed./Corp.:  Apple Daily Ltd., Hong Kong, China
URL: http://www.appledaily.com.hk/
Language: Chinese (Big5).
Description: Launched in June 1995, Apple Daily is one of the territory's
two leading mass market newspapers - the other being the Chinese-language
Dongfang ribao 東 方 日 報 (Oriental Daily News). Together they share well
above 70% of the total newspaper market, both claiming to have the bigger
readership. Apple Daily was publicly criticised from the Hongkong
Journalist Association (HKJA) for its sensational reporting and outrageous,
attention-grabbing pictures. (For more details cf. Hong Kong Journalists
Association and ARTICLE 19 [eds.]: "Questionable Beginnings. A report on
Freedom of Expression in the Hong Kong SAR one year after the change of
sovereignty." In: ARTICLE 19 (1998), URL:
http://www.hkja.org.hk/publications/rep98.html [accessed Nov. 11, 1998]).
