Some have said that professional journalists in Taiwan DO NOT exist as they are held to the minimum standards or none at all. Watch TV news to see proof that newscasting is mostly about filling airtime with superficial reports (lazy reporting) than doing any substantial work via investigation.
One TV station insider said that its reporter would go to the nearest source to snap a photo or video to complete assignments.
So-called TV reporters are seen asking childish questions perfunctorily to achieve nothing.
TV news is redundant in Taiwan and most stations rerun content one day to the next.
