Media_Caijing, business magazine for politics?

New York Times did a good story on Hu Shuli, the editor of Caijing Magazine, a popular weekly magazine in China.

"Caijing has a good reputation pushing the borders," says Perry Link, a professor of East Asian Studies at Princeton University who has written about the Chinese news media. "But they have to be careful. They may have flexibility, but it's flexibility with a leash."

One of my friends, who is close to Hu, told me that Hu and her Caijing are writing business stories to affect politics. And I couldn't agree more.
