No Food News is Good Food News

In the very unlink able SCMP from yesterday I read that the publication bureau in Beijing is working overtime to make sure no negative reports are published, especially about food safety.

The tabloid Beijing Daily Messenger will have to scrap its political and social pages. Instead it will have to offer entertainment and lifestyle news. The current 40 pages will become 32 and many reporters will loose their jobs.

The First, another daily is said to be pressured to only start publishing about sports.
The Beijing Youth Dailly and the Beijing Evening News have been told not to run any negative news.

Welcome to Happy Land and all this because of a fake or not so fake (nobody knows for sure anymore) dumpling?
