It's a start

Some good news about real, independent journalism from China.

It's happening.

Granted, there is still along way to go before all journalists in China can operate without fearing that their next controversial story will land them in jail (or worse). And, no, I'm not naive -- I recognize that under the current Communist regime that a free press is not going to be allowed.

But let's applaud those journalists who are taking a stand for freedom of the press, knowing that there is little historical or legal standing for them to enjoy.
