外文标题：China withholds visas for New York Times, Bloomberg reporters
BEIJING: Chinese authorities have been withholding residence visas for reporters working for The New York Times and Bloomberg
The move marks an intensifying of pressure on foreign journalists by the Chinese government and threatens to effectively shut down the two organizations' newsgathering operations in the country.
The Foreign Correspondents Club of China, in an emailed statement to members on Monday, said that none of the correspondents working for The Times and Bloomberg in China have been able to renew their residence visas this year.
Neither organization immediately responded to requests for comment.
China's foreign ministry, which issues press credentials, and Beijing's Public Security Bureau, which grants residence permits, did not respond to faxed lists of questions.
What can one expect from Chinese.

Kappal, toba, dhurrr ne matee! THIS is one of the reasons that USA press needs to kowtow to China. USA should refuse this blackmail.
The Chinese have made trillions of dollars flooding our shores with super cheap products, and now they are using some of that money to buy land and property all over America. For example, there is now a proposal to construct a multibillion dollar “China City” that would span approximately 600 acres in a remote area of New York state. This “China City” (that is actually what it would be called) would be located on Yankee Lake in Sullivan County, New York. The plans anticipate large numbers of Chinese businesses, plenty of homes for Chinese immigrants, a Chinese high school, a college, a casino and even a theme park. And the first 600 acres is only for “phase one” of the plan. Ultimately, the goal is for “China City” to cover more than 2,000 acres. Those promoting this plan say that it will be a great way for New Yorkers to learn to appreciate Chinese culture.
