China's promises on press freedom -what can journalists expect?

A report on China and its media by the Committee to Protect Journalists has been updated in the lead up to the Olympic Games in Beijing.

Called Falling Short and first published in August last year, the report claims that the Chinese authorities have failed to meet promises made to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 2001 that it would allow the media complete freedom.

The report includes guidelines for reporters on the ground with advice on sensitive issues and the implications for journalists reporting them.
