ALCANTAR JAIME, Sonia Evangelina. Media literacy of subinformation: Experiences from Asia. Méx.cuenca pac [online]. 2021, vol.10, n.28, pp.93-119.  Epub Mar 09, 2021. ISSN 2007-5308.

The objective of this article is to expose general suggestions in media literacy about the subinformative processes, taking as example the relationship between subinformation and public opinion regarding the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region pro-democratic protests and the People’s Republic of China. In this document, subinformation is understood to mean, unlike misinformation, the conceals of essential data in news published by the press, which makes even more difficult to build a complete picture of a public problem. Through fieldwork, in-depth interviews, and content analysis on the most influential news headlines in China and Hong Kong, this document concludes that subinformation has a greater presence than disinformation in the practice of journalistic practice, beyond journalistic culture.

Keywords : subinformation; press; China; Hong Kong; Asia.
