Newspapers

People's Daily

The national voice of the Communist Party of China. It's rarely readable for its own sake, but story selection, editorial choice, and photo placement are puzzled over by observers keen on gaining an insight into Zhongnanhai politics.

While it no longer has the influence it did in, say, 1966, the paper still has the ability to nudge public opinion, even unintentionally.

An Overseas Edition is published for foreign consumption and can be found in high-class hotels inside the country. An English edition is available online.

The paper's Chinese-language website hosts an extensive array of subsites, including news feeds from agencies across the country and the Strong Nation forums and blogs.
