Video: Video: How to Power an Independent Media Outlet Through the Kindness of a City | Tom Grundy | TEDxWanChai

Hong Kong Free Press (HKFP) was launched in 2015 amid rising concerns over declining press freedom in Hong Kong. In this talk, it's co-founder shares the journey that led to the launch of this crowdfunded media outlet. With attacks on journalists, advertisers withdrawing from media critical of the establishment, along with the existential pressures facing the wider industry, Tom Grundy discusses why it is ever more vital that Hong Kong has an independent platform for critical voices to be heard. Tom Grundy is the editor-in-chief and co-founder of Hong Kong Free Press, a non-profit, independent news source for the city. Run by journalists and backed by the public, it was founded in 2015 as a direct response to declining press freedom and now attracts up to a million readers a month. Born in Britain and based in Hong Kong for 13 years, Tom has a master’s in journalism from the University of Hong Kong and cut his teeth reporting on the 2014 Umbrella Movement protests for international outlets such as the BBC. Previously, he ran the HongWrong news and culture blog, and in 2012 co-founded HK Helpers Campaign, a multimedia platform for domestic worker rights. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
