They should let our journalists have free rein there just like theirs have here in the US. Here’s an article of the last Space Shuttle launch, obviously a historic event. I’m glad to see we let them report. Oh wait, we didn’t. Oops, my bad.

Our reporting of China has been a disgrace. We require only negative news, often concocted by our journalists, and refuse to recognize China’s accomplishments. It is scarcely surprising that the Chinese sometimes grow tired of us. Their treatment of Ramzy appears to have been gracious and accommodating. It is difficult to imagine our own INS being so lenient towards a hostile foreign journalist.
Oh, wait! We don’t admit foreign writers who are critical of us, do we?
Why does Reuters participate in this hateful charade?
