Abstract: The objectives of this presentation are:
1. To investigate how Hong Kong politicians discredit rivals through verbal indirectness strategies and mitigation of face-threats in tense election competition.
2. To explore the strategies employed by news media to express public dissatisfaction through a critical and attention- drawing, yet playful and humourous tone.
