Sometimes, it is press laziness more than press bias

Reuter's ran a story, also picked up by MSNBC, claiming that "Chinese actress-turned-director Xu Jinglei became the world's most widely read blogger this month...." The story is false. Apparently, her blog is the most read in China, not the world and Reuters and MSNBC, with their layers of editors and fact-checkers, did not ask any questions.
