BEIJING -- China issued new regulations to govern the publication of news stories on the Internet, amid what appears to be an ongoing campaign to clean up the media industry.
The Ministry of Information Industry and the State Council Information Office, under China's cabinet, yesterday issued the rules restricting online news services from publishing certain kinds of news.
These include stories that jeopardize state security or disclose state secrets; those that destroy the country's unity or hurt the state's reputation and interests; and those that disturb social order and stability.
They have begun an investigation into some of News Corp.'s practices in China. New [sic] Corp. has said it would work within China's regulatory framework.
