China Stops the Presses – Geoffrey A. Fowler and Juying Qin

From the Wall Street Journal, via the Washington Post (link):

China has placed a moratorium on new foreign on topics other than science and technology, dealing a blow to international media companies looking to tap the nation’s booming advertising market.

One casualty of the policy, adopted by China’s top publishing regulator, is the Chinese edition of the rock and youth culture magazine . The magazine had published its first edition last month, but the General Administration of Press and Publications said it will forbid it from publishing again. The magazine falls in the restricted category, GAPP said, and its publishers never applied for the appropriate permission to publish.
