hanghai Wen Hui Bao
The Shanghai "Wen Hui Bao", with the same Chinese name 文汇报, is another newspaper and independent from the Hong Kong "Wen Wei Po". In 1997, "Wen Hui Bao" merged with the "
Shanghai Xinmin Evening News" (新民晚報) to form Wenhui-Xinmin United Press Group(文匯新民聯合報業集團); the hearsay has been the fact that the former was in need of financial assistance.
"Shanghai Xinmin Evening News" is the most popular evening post in China which has a huge market share. Shanghai "Wen Hui Bao", as an official newspaper in Shanghai which often contained conservative and dull ideas, had lost many of its readers. As a result, these two newspapers combined together under economic considerations, with a backdown of political considerations. Hong Kong "Wen Wei Po" has a different management team and does not belong to Wenhui-Xinmin United Press Group.
