Portuguese-language daily newspaper Hoje Macau celebrated its 10th anniversary yesterday with a special 40-page edition. It included a supplement of every September 5th front page since 2001.
In an editorial, director Carlos Morais José stressed that Hoje Macau was born out of an earlier venture. Macau Hoje opened in 1990 during the Portuguese Administration and closed in August 2001, after the transition.
Hoje Macau was first published the following month. “We were the first [newspaper] to define ourselves as a local Portuguese-language newspaper, not a Portuguese newspaper,” Morais José wrote.
“In the end what is left is the news, our independence, our vision of journalism that also bets on opinion, analysis and criticism,” he wrote.
“Everyone knows we are not an ordinary and regular medium. We often like madness and nonsense but we have a specific and well-defined spot for it. We like to laugh. We like what is wise and what is beautiful,” Morais José added.
Macau Daily Times would like to congratulate all the staff working at Hoje Macau during its first decade of existence, and especially its director Carlos Morais José.
