Violence against Chinese journalists: New Committee to Protect Journalists report

In China's tightly proscribed media environment, journalists have long faced censorship and imprisonment. But as the media in China become market-oriented—and as journalists report more aggressively on crime and corruption—they face a new danger: violent retribution from individuals or groups implicated in their reports.

A special report by the Committee to Protect Journalists explores this new phenomenon. "New Journalism and New Threats," by Sophie Beach, is based on interviews with more than 20 journalists during a research mission to China, and on research by CPJ staff over the last year.
