An inside account of the Chinese media

Once again, ESWN has helped us all out by translating a useful article by Liang Zhi, giving an inside account of the life of a Chinese journalist, including the widespread corruption, government censorship, and poor working conditions he witnessed as a reporter at an unnamed paper: "There is a nice saying about reporters," he writes. "'We rise earlier than the chickens, we work harder than the cows, we eat worse than the pigs, we get paid less than common laborers.  It seems that we are better than anyone else, but we are actually worse.'  Such are the conditions for our Chinese reporters, especially those who work for private enterprises. "

The translation is here, and the original Chinese is here, via New Century Net.
