Media Association Criticizes Netease over Vulgar Content

Beijing Morning Post, 1/09/09

Chinese Internet portal Netease (Nasdaq: NTES) has been criticized in a public statement by the Beijing Association of Online Media (BAOM) for posting "vulgar" (i.e. pornographic or low-brow) content on the front page of its website's news section.

After receiving the criticism, Netease dismissed the employee responsible for the administration of the company's online entertainment center and forums. In addition, the company announced the suspension pending review of two editors responsible for website editing and management. The BAOM has suggested that its member companies refuse to hire the concerned individuals as a warning to others in the industry.
