  • RTHK a bad influence on children, say protesters
Several dozen protesters on Saturday demonstrated outside the government headquarters, demanding the sacking of RTHK directors, saying the public broadcaster is having a bad influence on children with their criticism of police and government.

The protesters, who belonged to from pro-Beijing groups called "Justice League" and "Guardians League", said the director and deputy directors of broadcasting should be fired for what they described as RTHK's "poor performance".

The protesters said the public broadcaster should promote love for the country and Hong Kong, and said some programmes have a bad influence on children because they're smearing the police and the government.

They also said RTHK has low ratings and is a waste of public money, and should become independent from the government.

They said Commerce Secretary Edward Yau has to respond to their demands by July, or he would be held responsible too.
