Vertical axis: upper: pro-commerical lower: pro-working class

Horizontial axis: left: pro-prc government; right: pro-democratic movements

We can see that the amount of the papers that are pro-prc government and commercial opinons are noticably outweighted the papers that having the other stances. In view of the situation, there are also some new websites on news which aims to provide an overview other than the mainstream voices.

The HouseNews: http://thehousenews.com/

The VJMedia: http://www.vjmedia.com.hk/

Those two websites are mainly for the popular bloggers in Hong Kong to voice out their opinons, and they somehow represents the voice of the HK teenagers on the issues. Yet, the articles are all in chinese and sometimes contains many Hong Kong slangs. The stance of the passages of those websites depends on the authors.
