China to Expel U.S. Journalists in Retaliation for Trump-Imposed Restrictions

HeadlineMar 18, 2020

The Chinese government also demanded outlets like Time magazine to provide detailed information of their reporting in the country. This comes as the Trump administration last month limited the number of Chinese citizens allowed to work in U.S.-based Chinese outlets to 100 and announced that five state-run Chinese news organizations would be regulated as “Chinese government functionaries.”
