China replaces liberal news editors

From China National News: “A spate of editorial resignations and replacements at outspoken newspapers in China appears to be a sign of tightening media controls, Hong Kong reports say.

Li Xueqian, editor-in-chief of the China Youth Daily, known for reporting official corruption, was asked to resign early this month, the South China Morning Post reported Tuesday. He was replaced by Li Erliang, former editor-in-chief of a staid official publication called Market Newspaper.”
