Taipei Times: No Net blackout, MAC asks China

From the Taipei Times, via Asia Media:

Taiwan would be willing to reopen its doors to two Chinese media outlets so long as Beijing lifts its blackout against the online versions of two Taipei-based newspapers and refrains from blocking its local press groups from posting reporters in Taiwan, a senior official said yesterday…

On April 10 the council suspended permits allowing China’s state-controlled Xinhua News Agency and the People’s Daily newspaper to post correspondents on the grounds that the two outlets had repeatedly abused their privileges by turning out misleading reports about Taiwan.
