"SHANGHAI The top editor of Southern Weekly, one of China
's most influential newspapers, apparently has been demoted, just weeks after his interview with President Obama
annoyed Communist Party propaganda officials, according to people familiar with the decision.
"Although the interview with Mr. Obama at the end of his visit to China last month did not yield any significant news, or even include unusually tough questions, it seemed to bother propaganda officials by putting the spotlight on the feisty, liberal-leaning paper from southern China's Guangdong Province, rather than China's official news agency, Xinhua, or its main broadcaster, China Central Television, according to several people close to the paper who asked not to be named for fear of being punished."
