Chinese News Agency IPO May Pressure Foreign Media

Media that might worry about a rising Xinhua are Thomson Reuters (TRI - Get Report), News Corp's (NWSA - Get Report) Dow Jones News Service and the Financial Times. All three cover blow-by-blow economic policy news announced by Chinese officials as well as the movements of major listed Chinese companies.
