Xinhua reported recently on a forum held in Beijing on deepening the Three Items of Education exercise. The forum was sponsored by the Party’s Central Propaganda Department. The “Three Items” are as follows: the Theory of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics; the Marxist View of Journalism and Professionalism; Work Ethics. As part of the “education” exercise, 100 young reporters and 100 core journalists from 18 national level news agencies visited multiple “old revolutionary base areas” during July and August. It was concluded in the forum that the “education” exercise should become “routine.” It served as a very good exercise to experience how to better feed the Party’s messages to the general population.
