In Beijing, newsstands face battle amid changing times

BEIJING---Zhang Fan, 33, stopped by a newsstand one recent Sunday morning near his home in Beijing to buy a magazine, only to find the stand had been shut down.   Zhang, a designer living on the Guangqumenwai street in Chaoyang district, used to visit a stand just 500 meters from his residential community to buy newspapers and magazines.   But since he started to read news and other material on his phone, he can count on one hand the number of times he has visited the stand in the past year.

Happy 33rd birthday, PDI!

Our paper celebrates a milestone today. Thirty-three years. Imagine that! No one, probably not even its founders, thought it would survive so long.   It was birthed in tumultuous, severely critical times. Some people feared it was too controversial, too forward, and dangerously gutsy. No one wants realities thrown in one's face. Too contentious, some argued.
