U.S. Orders Chinese State News Outlets to Register as Foreign Agents

China's foreign ministry hit out onWednesday at the "politicization" of the media after reports that Washington has ordered two of Beijing's state media behemoths to register as agents of a foreign government under lobbying laws. The U.S. Justice Department had demanded that China's official XinhuaNews Agency and state-owned international broadcaster CGTN register as foreign agents, which could limit their access in Washington, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal and by Bloomberg news agency.
