Chinese reporters urged to be impartial, stay away from rumors: regulation


14:22, November 11, 2011

BEIJING, Nov. 10 (Xinhua) -- Chinese journalists have been told to remain impartial and guard against using rumors as sources for their reports, according to a set of regulations issued by the government Thursday.

The regulations, issued by the General Administration of Press and Publication (GAPP), are aimed at increasing the credibility of Chinese news organizations. The reputation of some Chinese news media has been tainted by scandals involving inaccurate reporting, said a GAPP spokesman.

Under the regulations, journalists are required to quote at least two sources in critical reports and are banned from altering news photographs or video clips in a way that distorts the authenticity of the material.

News organizations will have to make corrections and issue apologies if their reports are found to be untrue or inaccurate, according to the regulations.
