BEIJING, Mar 29 : A top journalist at a Chinese newspaper says he is resigning because of the authorities' control over the media.
Yu Shaolei, an editor at Southern Metropolis Daily, posted a resignation note online, saying he could no longer follow the Communist Party line.
He also uploaded a message wishing those responsible for censoring his social media account well.
Chinese media outlets are subject to censorship, with government control tightening in recent years.
Yu, who edited the cultural section of the newspaper, posted a photo of his resignation form on his Sina Weibo microblog account on Monday evening. Under the "reason for resignation" section, he wrote: "Unable to bear your surname".     ?BBC
