Censorship row shows China's tight grip on media

In this Thursday, Jan. 10, 2013 photo, a man buys a latest edition of the Southern Weekly at a newspaper stand near the Southern Weekly headquarters in Guangzhou, Guangdong province, China. China's new Communist Party leaders want to appear more open, but they’re not about to give up control of the media. That’s the lesson of a dustup involving the influential newspaper whose staff briefly rebelled against especially heavy-handed censorship. The staff of Southern Weekly returned to work after some controls were relaxed, but public demands for the ouster of the top censor were ignored. (AP Photo/Vincent Yu)
