China's Media Come Of Age Amid State Controls
China's media are no longer an instrument of the state, says Hu Shuli, a Chinese journalist."I don't think the media in China now are still an instrument of the state. I think the media today are very diversified," says Hu, a speaker at the Reporting New Realities media conference held recently in Hong Kong in response to a question about overcoming the culture of the media being an instrument of the state. "people can see lots of different voices, but cannot take the media as only one voice. It was the situation maybe 30 years ago, but not now, especially in the past 10 years."
