Chinese newspaper rejects report

I consider that the article "Chinese press offers rose-tinted spectacle"

(Post, July 14, 2006) is inconsistent with the facts.

The story stated: "The top editors of Phnom Penh's three Chinese language daily

newspapers have told the Post that, although they enjoy considerable freedom of expression,

they face a strict directive from the Chinese government to report only good news."

That does not include me. When I gave an interview to the Post reporter I never said

our newspaper "face[d] a strict directive from the Chinese government to report

only good news." So please impart a correction for me.
