Reporters told to work within state media
(07-11 14:18)

Chinese regulators have banned its journalists from sharing information they have obtained on the job with overseas media or publishing it in any venue outside the media they are employed.
The regulations, which were detailed in a June 30 document but released this week, come at a time when Chinese journalists have been accused of using their positions to blackmail. But the rules will also impact journalists who, frustrated with tight news controls over what they can publish in their own companies, sometimes release news they have obtained to outlets outside China or in social media.
In an explanatory note, the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television, says those acts have "disturbed the normal news order'' and hurt China's national interest. --AP
