Such "racially discriminatory" headlines, according to Geng, betrayed journalistic ethics and tainted the real meaning of freedom of expression, "triggering indignation and condemnation among the Chinese people and the international community."
"The Chinese people do not welcome those media that speak racially discriminatory language and maliciously slander and attack China," he said.
"As such, it is decided that from today, the press cards of three WSJ journalists will be revoked," the spokesperson announced. ■
