NY Times Chinese language site ‘under review’, Reuters says

New York Times Co. is going to keep all its money-losing operations, including those in China, under review as the newspaper continues its shift towards a digital landscape, Reuters news agency reported Tuesday, citing chief executive Mark Thompson. The newspaper’s Chinese language website has been blocked in China ever since it published an article in October 2012 about the family wealth of former premier Wen Jiabao in October 2012, the report said. “The fact that we can’t be seen officially inside China means the revenue is not as large as we would have wished it to have been,” Thompson was quoted as saying.
