China to Foreign Media: "One of these days I'm going to kill you"

Associated_Press story via Minnesota's Pioneer_Press:

BEIJING—Western reporters in China have received harassing phone calls, e-mails
and text messages, some with death threats, supposedly from ordinary Chinese
complaining about alleged bias in coverage of recent anti-Chinese protests in
Tibet.
The harassment began two weeks ago and was largely targeted at
foreign television broadcasters, CNN in particular. But the campaign broadened
in recent days after the mobile phone numbers and other contact information for
reporters from The Associated Press, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today were
posted on several Web sites, including a military affairs chat site.
"The
Chinese people don't welcome you American running dog [走狗].
Your reports twist the facts and will suffer the curse of heaven," said one
e-mail received by the AP.


I'm going to start publicizing more of these and other threats (including ones I've received) from Chinese when we speak out about the plight of the Tibetan people.
