Positive Chinese News - Press and Land Reform

Is China Dismantling Its 'Socialist' Countryside? - Land reform is coming to China, it's very controversial and a ticking time bomb with 60 to 70% of the population still in the countryside and pretty poor, compared to the now rich coastal areas. And toss into this mess corruption issues and farmland being made into factories by local party chiefs or people who paid enough bribes. Not to mention more traditional leaders who see this as a key issue, and the danger of becoming like other countries with large land owners, such as China before the 1949 revolution, and a lot of poor people.

I see the land reform as positive news, the trick is doing it right.

Other positive news is Olympic Media Rules Preserved in China: Liberalization Applies Only to Foreigners which is a step in the right direction. I am sure in time it will also apply to domestic media, the sooner the better.
