Wen Wei Po

Wen Wei Po is a Hong Kong-based Chinese language newspaper, first established in Shanghai in January 1938, with the Hong Kong version launched on 9 September 1948.

The paper is state-owned, controlled by the Liaison Office of the Central Government. The publishers of Wen Wei Po aim to support the official mainland Chinese Xinhua News Agency in reporting the latest mainland developments. In 1989, when the editorial board openly objected to the use of force in the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre, the editorial board was thereafter replaced.

The paper also covers and comments on Hong Kong news.
