China Tightens Rules on News Organizations’ Social Media

China’s media regulator stepped up controls on news organizations’ use of social media, including barring the retransmission of content from overseas media and websites without permission.

The State Administration of Radio Film and Television also said that editorial employees must get permission to set up microblogs for work purposes and to release any information they acquire when on duty, according an article dated yesterday on the regulator’s online publication

The rules also ban the publication of rumors, urge reporters to focus on “positive” publicity and prohibit the publication of materials from freelance writers, civil-society groups and commercial organizations without approval, it said.

China, the world’s largest Internet market by users, censors social-media comments critical of the ruling Communist Party. The government also seeks to ensure that news available online comes from the nation’s official media.
