《中国日报》访谈

《南风窗》杂志社社长陈中认为,媒体发展最大的问题就是新闻管理和新闻环境。

“你能开多大的口子,新闻媒体就能探出多大的身子。” 陈中说。“每一个媒体的创造力都是很大的,主要看能给它什么样的环境。”

《南风窗》以对新闻事件背后的社会问题的分析解读见长,是中国最有影响力的政经新闻杂志之一。最近一两个月以来,记者被打被通缉,发生很多事情。《南风窗》下一期的独家策划准备做“批评的权力”。

“一个社会如果没有真思想的交流,讲的都是假话、官话、客套话,这个社会就成问题。”陈中说。“社会应该有批评的权力。不要以为主旋律就是唱颂歌,批评也是主旋律。

 

Chen Zhong, executive editor of Nanfengchuang magazine (南风窗杂志社总编陈中), also blamed the media administration and environment for impeding the industrial development.

“How further a media can lean out depends on how big the opening is,” he said.

The bimonthly news magazine based in Guangzhou is well-known for in depth report and analysis of current affairs and social problems. Its upcoming issue will present a cover story discussing the right to criticize, following the nationwide outcry against the local police in Zhejiang province, which put Qiu Ziming, a business reporter for Economic Observer, on an online wanted list after he reported alleged improprieties by a local listed company.

“A society will be in trouble if it is prevailed with lies, bureaucratic jargon and polite remarks while lacking for communication of what people really think,” Chen said. “The public should have the right to criticize in realization that criticism – not just praise – is also part of the mainstream ideology.”
