China Daily exclusive and quake flood prevention

This is an interesting piece of news for two reasons: the content of the news, and the fact that The China Daily is running it as the top story on it’s website, marked ‘exclusive’.

There never used to be ‘exclusive’ stories in China since all publications and TV stations had to get their news from Xinhua or a small, limited range of other official sources.
