Online media Mad Dog Daily ceases operation

An online media platform founded by former legislator Wong Yuk-man has ceased operation, days after Stand News and Citizen News announced their closures.

Wong announced Mad Dog Daily’s closure in his YouTube channel, saying all the platform’s content had been removed.

He said if articles published by Stand News were deemed seditious by the authorities, his outlet would “definitely fall foul of the law”.

Wong said the decision was made to protect his staff in Hong Kong.

It’s not immediately known how many employees were affected by Mad Dog’s closure.
