Beijing, Jan 13 (IANS) Chinese journalists should write more meaningful stories that show people’s genuine concerns and have the greatest relevance to their lives, a top official said Thursday.

Liu Yunshan, head of the publicity department of the Communist Party of China’s (CPC) Central Committee, made the remarks at a journalists’ forum here, Xinhua reported.

The meeting was to deliberate on a campaign designed to improve journalists’ working styles and get more grassroots voices heard through news reporting.
