The Communist Party propaganda chief of Liaoning province, Fan Weiping, told a meeting that local media news reports needed to reflect confidence in the beleaguered center of heavy industry’s future development, South China Morning Post reported, citing state media. “Pessimistic but inappropriate comments such as ‘lost economic track’, ‘economic collapse’ and ‘economic fall’ have appeared in the Liaoning media,” Fan said, according to the People’s Daily. “The political discipline of the party has to be enforced as strict propaganda discipline and the spread of any wrong conceptions that violate the directives of the central government is banned. This is the bottom line that should not be crossed.”
