In a poll in 2016, only 32 per cent of Americans said that they have “a great deal” or “a fair amount” of trust in the mainstream media. The number is especially low among Republican voters, with only 14 per cent of them saying they trust the mainstream media.

I support Hong Kong’s first bike-sharing service, Gobee.bike, which was launched in April. It has brought us many benefits.
Breastfeeding is becoming more common in Hong Kong, mainly because it is healthier than giving formula milk to infants. However, the existing facilities for breastfeeding in public places here are inadequate.
I am writing to express my views on the article “Hong Kong mothers increasingly bring in the professionals when it comes to childcare” (SCMP, April 30).
It is unacceptable that many Hongkongers spend excessively on material goods due to the city’s values and lifestyle which are centred on consumerism. This unhealthy shopping habit causes a serious waste problem that is bad for the environment.
People say Hongkongers will face an identity crisis because they have not been taught Chinese history properly. Therefore, the Education Bureau is considering making Chinese history compulsory in senior secondary school. I do not agree with this.
Communicating is far more convenient for our generation than it was for our parents, thanks to technology.
Many people say the MTR’s decision to ban the sale of lighters inside the stations won’t be effective. They say anybody who is planning to start a fire can buy a lighter outside and bring it into the station.
Everyone knows that school life is hard for students in Hong Kong. There is so much pressure on us to get the best results.
In my opinion, a “by the bag” method will not reduce the number of plastic bags used, and will not deal with the household waste disposal problem effectively.
Many students in Hong Kong don’t choose their electives according to their interests. To a certain extent, this could be because many parents want their children to become doctors or lawyers.
