Capitol Communicator reports that AdWeek Named The Washington Post "Hottest in News" and "Hottest in Social Media"

Clone of Washington Post Website Emerged in China, Reports Financial Times

by | Sep 29, 2017

A lookalike of the Washington Post website emerged in China, reports the Financial Times.

According to CNBC, the website used the Washington Post masthead and distributed content “not just from the Washington, D.C.-based newspaper, but also stories from the state news agency Xinhua, which were tagged as Washington Post copy, the report added.

“The website was operated by Sun News, a Chinese client of the Washington Post News Service, the report said.

 “That agreement called for allowing Sun News to republish a limited number of the Washington Post’s stories and did not allow Sun News to use the newspaper’s brand “in the way they did,” the Financial Times reported, citing Washington Post spokeswoman Kris Coratti.

“She said the issue is believed to be a “simple misunderstanding about the contract,” the Financial Times reported.

“Sun Media told the Financial Times it had not breached its two-year contract with the U.S. news service. CNBC could not reach Sun Media for comment.

“The website has since been redesigned.”
