China: Plagiarism in state-owned media

An previously well-respected and outspoken Chinese newspaper which was taken over by the government earlier this year has since resorted to copying stories from other publications, says Non-violent Resistance blogger uleewang.

“In the same weekly section, one also finds international stories about the Jordanian queen, the smart red-haired chimpanzees of Sumatra, Thai Prime Minister Thaksin's resignation, and Ukraine's post-election politics. I don't think the Beijing Times has the editorial budget to send its own reporters to do these stories,” he continues.
