Media regulation

You say tomato, I say greater access huh?

Three headlines and opening sentences from three newspapers:

The China Daily: Foreign media enjoy greater access

The Wall Street Journal: Foreign Media in China Say Freedoms Still Lack

The Guardian: China not living up to media freedom pledge - report

While the China Daily article does not include any interviews with foreign correspondents, the latter two articles are based on a survey of members of the Foreign Correspondents Club of China. This is the FCCC website; click here to download a PDF file of their report.

The Wall Street Journal has also published a Chinese translation of the article here (free registration required).
