Hong Kong’s RTHK will become state media after partnership with China’s CCTV, says press group chief

The head of Hong Kong’s press group has said the authorities are moving to change the city’s public broadcaster into a propaganda mouthpiece “as soon as possible,” after the city’s leader announced a partnership between RTHK and a Chinese state media company earlier this week.
Chief Executive Carrie Lam announced on Monday that RTHK will partner with China Media Group – the holding group for CCTV and China National Radio – to air more programmes to “nurture a stronger sense of patriotism” among viewers.
