Shi Tao, source: WANEarlier this month, the China Newspaper Association faxed a letter to the World Association of Newspapers to protest awarding the 2007 WAN Golden Pen of Freedom to Shi Tao. WAN’s CEO sent back a feisty letter to reject the request. The Shi Tao case has generated a lot of anger among professionals and the general public especially due to the Yahoo! involvement. The exchange of letters between the newspaper associations demonstrated the best arguments for the case. And to top off the reply, WAN sent along a list of journalists imprisoned in China.
