The new media has significantly altered China Daily in different periods. Firstly, while the print version was widely distributed in China, the addition of international editions in USA and Europe, although in print, could not have taken off without online access. Then as more folks read digital news on kindle, tablets etc, the China Daily apps become important. I read most China Daily on my I-Pad, though I still pick up the print copy when I can. The speed of interaction is much faster and broader by new media. Of course space is not limited like in the print versions.
