'Election blow for HK Democrats'??

Posted by Hello

So according to CNN International's Asia front page, Hong Kong's pro-democratic parties have suffered an 'election blow'. Which means, once the MSMspeak is translated into English, that they gained three seats, while their opponents gained none. Full story here. I also like their caption for this picture: "The disappointment is clear on Martin Lee's face as he talks to the media." Well, it's not clear to me, but thanks for editorializing.

Of course, like most other of my rants on here, I could be completely wrong. But characterizing an electoral gain as a loss seems disingenuous at the least. I welcome confirmation or correction.
