"Censorship is no secret in China, but before people felt 'it's nothing to do with me'," Li said. "Now people feel that 'it is to do with me, my freedom and my freedom of expression. A change is underway, and that's the real meaning of this incident."

Deal reached at Chinese newspaper that defied authorities

Calum MacLeod, USA TODAY1:08a.m. EST January 10, 2013

 

Impact of journalists' battle could be wide-reaching within China.

BEIJING – A tentative deal reached Wednesday between propaganda officials and journalists at a rebellious newspaper ended a standoff and will allow Southern Weekend to print its weekly edition on Thursday as normal.

Even as tensions calmed, China analysts said the impact of the journalists' battle against state censorship would be wide-reaching within China.

"Unless (media) control is lessened, we will see more cases like Southern Weekend,” predicted Hu Yong, a journalism professor at Peking University.

Officials and editors reached an agreement that requires the government to stop directly censoring content prior to publication and not to punish the journalists who walked off the job, the Associated Press reported.

About 200 editors and journalists gathered until early Wednesday morning at the Beijing News -- formerly co-owned by the Southern Media Group, which publishes Southern Weekend -- to protest censorship, said an editor and a journalist who requested anonymity for fear of reprisal from the government.

Dai Zigeng, the publisher of the Beijing News, a popular tabloid in the Chinese capital, offered to resign after refusing to run a critical editorial submitted from the Communist Party-run Global Times newspaper.

Pictures of the gathering at Beijing News circulated online on China's Twitter equivalents, and were quickly deleted by censors. Several other newspapers ran the mandatory editorial Tuesday with disclaimers highlighting it did not reflect their views. The Beijing News ran it Wednesday, but not in a prominent position.

The opposition to Communist Party censorship, which began with protests over the government's wholesale rewriting of Southern Weekend's 2013 new year editorial, has taken on "such a big dimension, there will be more cases as there is good support from fellow journalists," Hu said. "It is a protest against censorship."

If Southern Weekend can come out as normal, without being subjected to the tougher controls by Guangdong provincial authorities that its journalists have endured since spring 2012, "that would be a small, limited victory, ” said David Bandurski, a researcher at the University of Hong Kong's China Media Project.

"It would also be a small victory for China's media, as it sets a precedent and sends a message to officials that they can't change the rules and insert themselves in the editorial process," Bandurski said. "They may be less likely to encroach on the space that the media does have, or face the clear risk of blowback," as in this case of these protests.

The widespread support for Southern Weekend represents a significant social change, said Li Datong, a Chinese journalist and former editor of a newspaper supplement closed by authorities.

"This protest has had definite social effect, as the whole society now supports Southern Weekend, even actresses pay attention to this. The concept of democracy is spreading," he said.

Earlier this week, Yao Chen and Li Bingbing posted support on China's Twitter equivalent, while 360buy, one of China's largest online electronics retailer, posted an advertisement hinting at strong support for the paper.

"Censorship is no secret in China, but before people felt 'it's nothing to do with me'," Li said. "Now people feel that 'it is to do with me, my freedom and my freedom of expression. A change is underway, and that's the real meaning of this incident."

The power of China's media remains small in the face of a powerful propaganda bureaucracy, said Li, who doubted Southern Weekend would be able to publish without prior censorship by the government.

"They won't leave any publication alone," he said. But the possible resignation of Dai Zigeng is "very important. This incident is over, but there will be more incidents in future as people like Dai feel the current system cannot continue as it is."
