TAIPEI, Taiwan — A TV reporter has dismissed speculation that she was involved in an alleged love-motivated information leak that led to the sacking of a Taipei City Government aide who refused to take a lie-detector test.
The Next TV reporter, Chang Yen-ching, writing on her Facebook page, protested that speculation putting her at the center of the row is threatening to cancel out all her hard work as a journalist, the Central News Agency reported.
She said she previously chose not to respond to the speculation but has now decided to speak up after seeing the matter developing into “gossip,” which she said is blurring the focus of the issue.
One of Taipei Deputy Mayor Charles Lin’s aide’s, surnamed Huang, has been fired for refusing to take a lie detector test conducted to identify the “mole” that leaked Mayor Ko Wen-je’s unannounced itineraries to the press. [FULL STORY]
