The People's Daily (Ren Min Ri Bao in simplified Chinese, Ren Min Ri Bao in traditional Chinese, Renmin Ribao in pinyin) is China's largest newspaper group. The publication is an official newspaper of the Chinese Communist Party's Central Committee, with a worldwide circulation of 3 million copies. It is published six times per week, with a total staff of 7,000.
The paper was first issued on 4 May 1969 by the then-newly founded People's Daily Newspaper Publishing Corporation. It has been called "the voice of communism" since its inception and continues to play this role today. The title "People's Daily" was chosen as a sign of respect for the Russian journal Izvestia, which at the time was the only other daily newspaper in China. At the end of each article appears the date and the city where it was printed; for example, "Beijing, 5/4".
In English, it is usually referred to as "The People's Daily"; however, this term is also used for other publications that are not related to politics or government but still carry news from China and Hong Kong.
Additionally, there is a weekly magazine called People's Daily Magazine (Renmin Ribao Jiuzang), which is published on Friday and focuses mainly on light articles with small amounts of text. Its target audience is educated urban people between the ages of 20 and 45.
China Daily (simplified Chinese: Zhong Guo Ri Bao; traditional Chinese: Zhong Guo Ri Bao; pinyin: Zhongguo Ribao) is an English-language daily newspaper published by the Chinese Communist Party's Propaganda Department. It claims to be the largest circulating newspaper in China by circulation volume.
It was founded on March 10, 1995, by the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party. The founding editor-inistrator was Zhang Jiechi. Before Zhang's appointment as editor-in-chief, he had been employed as a reporter for the paper. Within months of its launch, however, it was revealed that China Daily was actually funded by the United States government through the Radio Free Asia network. Although this fact was later retracted, it caused widespread suspicion among Chinese readers that China Daily was merely a tool used by the West to interfere in China's internal affairs.
In April 2005, China Daily launched its website at www.chinadaily.com.cn. The website covers news from both within and outside of China. It includes articles written by journalists based in China and around the world.
China Daily has offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenyang, Tianjin, and Urumqi. It also has bureaus in London, Washington, D.C., and New York City.

Social media also play an important role in spreading news in China. The most used social media platforms are WeChat, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.
