Blog: Don’t punish Chinese restrictions with more restrictions

21 Jun

The Committee to Protect
is watching with concern the
progress of H.R.
, the Chinese Media Reciprocity Act of 2011, which is under discussion Wednesday
in front of the Subcommittee on Immigration Policy and Enforcement. The bill
seeks to reduce the number of visas available to journalists (and their
families) working in the United States for 13 Chinese state-controlled
publications. The aim is to pressure Beijing into allowing more Voice of
America reporters into China; VOA staffers tell us that they are allowed only two
China visas to cover a country of more than 1.3 billion people.
