Resignations at Caijing Magazine

On September 28, Caijing (财经), probably China’s most influential financial magazine, stated that statements to the effect that there have been resignations among members of the CAIJING management team are entirely without basis, and that we reserve the right to pursue legal action in connection with any unverified statements.

On Monday, the New York Times reported that Caijing had been thrown into turmoil after a dispute over its editorial policy and business governance led to the resignation of 11 high-ranking executives and nearly 70 other workers from the business staff, according to people close to the magazine. The editor-in-chief, Hu Shuli (胡舒立) may still be negotiating with the magazine’s owners.

On Tuesday (today GMT), Heidi Zhang of Caijing told The Associated Press that Caijing Magazine’s Daphne Wu Chuanhui and almost 60 to 70 employees who worked for her in the business department have resigned.

Caijing is certainly no CCP mouthpiece. Hu Shuli asks questions which can’t be answered with “our stimulus package is already unfolding a powerful effect”.
