Investigative journalism challenged in China

The Washington Post's Edward Cody reports on the case of Pang Jiaoming, a reporter in China who lost his job in the wake of publishing investigative stories "reporting that substandard coal ash was being used in construction of a showcase railroad, the $12 billion high-speed line running 500 miles." The Post says that due to a pair of stories on the ash situation, "The Communist Party's Central Propaganda Department and the official All-China Journalists Association issued a directive ordering Pang's employer, the China Economic Times, not only to fire him, but also to 'reinforce the Marxist ideological education of its journalists.'"
