Press slammed for coverage of Taishi – SCMP

From the South China Morning Post, via Asia Media:

Beijing yesterday criticised foreign journalists for covering an ugly battle over village in Taishi, Guangdong province, where residents have been intimidated and a legislator badly beaten.

“We express regret over these journalists repeatedly breaching relevant rules to carry out such reporting activities,” spokesman Kong Quan said when asked to comment on the roughing up of reporters in recent weeks.

“Some media are always criticising China for the lack of laws, but where there are laws, they lead the way in not abiding by them,” he said.
