China said Tuesday it is expelling reporters from three major U.S. newspapers — The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal — in response to what officials say is “unwarranted restrictions on Chinese media agencies.”
In addition, Beijing ordered two other news outlets, Time magazine and the independent U.S.-funded Voice of America news operation, to give Chinese authorities detailed information about their work in China.
The press credentials for the Times, Journal and Post reporters were set to expire at year’s end, but Beijing ordered them to turn in their press cards within 10 days.
China said the U.S. journalists “will not be allowed to continue working as journalists in the People’s Republic of China, including its Hong Kong and Macao Special Administrative Regions.” The two territories are semi-autonomous and there supposedly is more freedom of the press than that in mainland China.
