專題|警方發布突發事件訊息機制有損公眾知情權
  自從零四年十二月開始,警方引入加密的數碼化通訊系統 (第三代數碼通訊系統,簡稱CC3),香港新聞界無法如過往般依靠截聽警方通訊取得即時罪案資訊,須要依靠警方訂定的突發新聞資訊發放制度,在政府新聞網上查閱警方發出的當日罪案訊息......

專題|突發老薑:「真要考番個的士牌」
  跑到菲律賓採訪挾持人質慘劇,身旁都是一班突發老行尊,心想,這次又是他們表演身手的良機。但見他們熟練地游走事發現場、醫院、警局、殯儀館,衷心佩服他們的機智和應變能力。薑,果然愈老愈辣......

專題|沒有突發的日子......
  讓我們回到本年一月二十七日的跑馬地。 當天晚上,一個爛醉的女人駕駛著名貴房車在司徒拔道奔馳,車廂瀰漫酒氣。突然間,房車一頭撞向對面線的巴士。這結果,電視廣告早就警告過了,不聽,撞車是遲早的事吧? 然後,警察「例牌」到場,爛醉的女人腳步浮浮地站在車旁......

城中熱話(馬尼拉人質事件)槍林彈雨個半小時
  八月二十三日中午十二時三十五分,在街上放假購物的我接獲電台總採訪主任劉美玲來電,對方匆匆交待幾句馬尼拉挾持香港人質事件,便問我可否即時起行。意識到問題的嚴重性,我亳不猶疑地說:「可以。」萬萬想不到,這兩個字讓我在數小時後親身經歷仿如警匪片的驚心動魄場面......

城中熱話(馬尼拉人質事件)當問題遇上傷心人 - 馬尼拉人質事件反思
  「事後最悔疚的,是明知倖存者或死傷者家屬不想面對鏡頭,不想讓我們的問題挑起他/她的傷痛記憶,但我們還是要問,因為實在有太多疑團未解。」事隔三星期,《明報》資深記者盧曼思被問及採訪馬尼拉人質事件最感困擾的問題時,不假思索地道出這個犖繞心頭的鬱結......

業界事務|「風」 勢減弱
  上期《記者之聲》於七月十八日出版後,不少報章及電台節目翌日都有跟進「吹風會多得令人感冒」的封面故事,官員自然感受到壓力,有官員聲稱沒有迴避傳媒、有人則語帶不屑地說:「什麼叫『吹風會』?我不懂!」,而環境局局長邱騰華更於《記者之聲》出版翌日,主動打電話到商業電台《左右大局》節目回應......

我想講循證醫學報新聞
  跑醫療健康題材的記者不時出席藥廠的記者會,程序通常先由講者 - 大多是醫生 - 播放精美製作的投影片講解研究,隨後是記者答問環節。記者會後,記者們又會上前追問講者更多問題,離開時少不免喃喃細語:「又賣藥喇!」......

傳媒對對碰|我和我的 「老總」 爸爸
  ...很多人說,因為工作忙碌,記者往往要「六親不認」,但我沒有想過,「六親不認」要以這種方式在我身上出現。後來有前輩提醒我,記者的誠信很重要,我才漸漸想通,別人再問起,我頂多只是拒絕回應......
