香港呀,香港。

多得香港傳媒不少,我的耳朵就快要起繭了。就連人,也快要發瘋了。

話說我老媽不知道從哪裡聽回來,說日本的火山蠢蠢欲動快要爆發,說現在日本每隔幾日又會地震,害得她現在每天每時每刻都在我耳邊嘰咕著我別回去了,要是真要回去也別停留那麼久,最多三個月就好回港工作。

唉,真係丫。

不過我總覺得,這不關我媽的事,而是香港的傳媒真是十分不該。

不該整天提著日本地震的事情。不該將事情的嚴重性無限放大。不該煽情。不該讓人心終日惶惶。不該報導未經證實的消息。更加不該將任何事都加上「有專家指出」這一句來增加可信性。

那個專家究竟是誰呀?是從哪裡的研究報告查出來的呀?日本的哪座火山快要爆發呀?又,為何明明是國際新聞我卻在美加甚至日本自己的新聞網站都找不到相關報導呀?

Like, seriously, pleaseeee. It's not like there's no other news to report or nothing else is going on around the world. And it's not like you'd earn more respect if you exaggerate news.

不是所有人都會上網查明每一篇新聞的真確性,就像我媽,只是一個普通師奶,她就只能從電視和收音機收取消息。電視/收音機說甚麼她就信甚麼,就算有自己思考過,經過大幅的放大跟煽情,自己就算怎麼思考也會遭到扭曲吧?

我為甚麼在加拿大的這麼多年來都堅持要學中文?還不都是嚮往香港,想長大了在香港工作、生活。但願我將來不會感到失望或者後悔,漸漸覺得其實香港真是沒有我想像中般可愛。

中港台現在的傳媒現在都愛煽情與誇大,呼天搶地,但讀者又受,可能這就是中國人的恨性。

You're so right about HK. I think I might start loving Vancouver more than HK now.

同意同意。現在太多人不過濾資訊就全盤接受,而且大多都是中國人,囧。多麼奇怪的民族呀!

Me too... I'm starting to consider settling in Vancouver after several experiences in HK this time back. Sigh. Too bad the taxes are too intimidating in BC!!! Argh!!!

mmm, i have no proofs either, but my jap friend said Mt Fuji is consider as a threat now, since scientist claimed that volcano might never actually go dormant. And after the big quake, there were tons of small ones, and they are expecting another huge one closer to Tokyo. Like i said, NO PROOF lol

There is proof actually. The observatory department of Japan released a statement saying that the volcanoes in Japan are of no threat to Japan at the moment, whether Mt. Fuji or the other smaller ones around Japan. But I haven't looked up the huge one coming soon theory yet... Let's hope there won't be another one!!! (touch wood!!!)
