Yeah, the bias of western media regarding HK were soooo obvious. Especially media from the 5eyes. In my country which is not from th 5eyes, I remember the main news show saying "Again, it came to protests in the Chinese specially administered region HK".
Sounds neutral but they use the word AGAIN and indeed annoy the viewers with annoying superficial coverage afterwards. Like the word "AGAIN" shows, they do it on a regular basis.

You clearly haven't been on TikTok where people in China exploit African tribes and make fun of black people in general

Although I agree there are questionable aspects/condemn-able violence in the protests and got away with things that may not be possible elsewhere, I feel like this podcast was very disconnected from Hong Kong's views about the West and pent up issues with China (from even before June 4th Tienanmen) and skewed/ill-researched in their opinions regarding this specific topic.

Yes there are different opinions on this matter even in HK, please refrain from propagating ideas that may be misleading and potentially divisive in a destructive manner, especially if it is not done in a neutral manner.

I totally relate to ur friend about finding freedom of speech in the Mainland, China…my fiancé and I escaped to Shenzhen last fall for a while (unfortunately as refugees) and felt a such sense of freedom and safety that we didn’t have in HK at the time, and still don’t quite have few month later…and mind you I grew up in US and speak fluent Ame English and recently moved to HK…I’m afraid to speak Mandarin here most of the time…on that note, I recently realized that the freedom of speech I have in work and leisure now in the… Read more »

Thank you for another insightful conversation. The British politicians have started to follow suit in Trump’s finger pointing. Where do you see this going?

The problem is those victims didn't aware how to access international law to defend themselves by suing those press flaming or US. Might take time but if succeeded, make them millionaires or very famous.
In the west, the nightmare is the flaming end up with severe lawsuit with damages compensation fine that will cause the press Corp bankrupt. This will help cut down such Garbage.

There are different types of censorship. In underdeveloped countries with less developed media and technologies like Google, as well as less prestige than the West, the governments have to use a straightforward and "primitive" way to control censorship. In developed countries like the U.S., with prestige and high techs, they can make censorship so subtle and shady, more importantly, profitable.

It was also good to get Dan Cohen's background and how he is able to speak honestly. Pity the other western journalists out there who may have a conscience but unable to speak truthfully.

Daniel, I'm looking forward to seeing you chat with Trevor Noah. Also, have you ever consider post your video in some Chinese medias such as Bilibili so that more Chinese who don't have assess to Youtube could learn more about what the outside world looks like and I am sure they are going to love it.

One extremely obvious observation that I have made, and which I have seen no one else anywhere make regarding the Hong Kong "protests", is that, when you compare the Hong Kong "protests" with the New York City subway protests last year, side by side, the most immediate observation one could make is that the New York City protesters were clearly dressed in all sorts of random street clothing, different kinds of non-professional masks or using other things like scarves as makeshift masks, and many others didn't even have anything to use as masks, while the Hong Kong "protesters" were almost… Read more »

Off topic, the political problems around the world in the past and currently has always been about western imperialism. Most people don't have the critical thinking skills nor the knowledge of theories and dynamics to decipher the American propaganda. I don't care to explain or give evidence to backup my claims. Just use your own brain. Here's a little tip. Just look at the rise of America and it's current geo political affairs and campaigns around the world and compare them to China rise and current geo political policy. If you're fair and objective, you'll find the difference between China… Read more »

It is really weird…. These guys have shown how much they support police brutality and doesn't give a damn about how HK cops traumatized children and teenagers by illegally arrested them with violence. Or knowing that some teenager became homeless when their parents refused to bail them out even if the teenagers did nothing. Hence arbitrary arrest. So many homeless teenager or college students and these guys enjoy it. Daniel would tried so hard to doxx a guy and claim he is worry about the quality of education while ignoring the quality of police behavior toward children and teenagers. He… Read more »

Daniel Kudos for you👍👍👍. China is paternalistic alright but that's thousands of years Confucius philosophy and morality where the head of the country is regarded as Father of the country. It's a huge responsibility. This CV crisis just goes to show the Fathers of the country lived up to the expectations of the overwhelming majority of Chinese people.

You should invite someone who supports the HK protests. That would be an interesting conversation. Why only talk with people who think the same?
