As tensions in Hong Kong continue, protestors have turned their disdain toward a news station they're accusing of pro-China bias, the New York Times reports.

What's happening: "Analysts say TVB’s reporting has largely focused on how the protests have disrupted Hong Kong’s famed efficiency, while playing down the political frustrations that have driven people to the streets in large numbers," the Times writes.

Between the lines: The accusations are in line with concerns that Hong Kong's journalistic coverage is becoming increasingly like China's notoriously suppressed media sphere, in which communist rulings drastically refrain free speech in reporting.

  • Gathering 100,000 signatures for a petition criticizing the station.
  • Racking up 30,000 likes on a Facebook page encouraging people to boycott the station.
  • Confronting TVB reporters while they are shooting.
  • Lobbying advertisers to refrain from working with the station.
