Journalist Walk Out | Beijing News Newspaper

Interesting to read that a management change in one of the more progressive Chinese newspapers, the Beijing News, isn’t going as smoothly as planned.

From the BBC

About 100 journalists from one of China’s most progressive newspapers, the Beijing News, have walked out to protest against their editor’s sacking.

There was no mention of the walk-out in China’s newspapers, but word of it spread rapidly via internet blogs and bulletin boards, which Communist officials are less able to control.

The power of the web seems to still be there.
