Expansionist Xinhua

All over the world, newsrooms are shrinking as wire services and media houses cut back on journalism budgets in an effort to stay afloat. But there is one media house which has been expanding and continues to expand and that is Xinhua, China’s state-run news agency.  With over 8000 employees and a reported 105 bureaus worldwide, it is the largest news service in the world.  Its current focus is Africa where China has crucial investments and of course Asia, the continent whose leadership China aspires to.
