“Dark night” descended into Hong Kong again on 31st August 2019. The cops went into the train carriages to hit the citizens with the batons and many people were injured. On the same night, TVB reported the entire process and presented the real information about “the policemen using batons to hit people” but it was changed to “the cops subdued the commuters by using batons” after one night. The netizens uploaded two versions of the news reported as evidence online and posted their messages: “Are you still watching CCTVB?”

In the beginning of the video clip, a black and white message is written: “As for 831 chaos, TVB should do self-reflection!” Followed by the words, “before the purification at 6.06am” and the male news presenter said: “The cops dashed into Prince Edward station and used batons to hit the commuters in the train carriage.” After the purification at 6.36am, the female news presenter reported a different information: “The cops subdued the protesters and commuters by using batons.”

As a result, the news went viral immediately and the public showed their dissatisfactions with TVB senior management, Keith Yuen (袁志偉): “After the training, you learn very quickly and have a bright future. You reported fake news and might as well close the news department. There is two different endings #CCTVB indeed A rubbish channel and letting rubbish people to manage it.”
