Wall Street Journal editor in chief Matt Murray issued the following statement in response to China’s decision to expel its journalists:

China’s unprecedented attack on freedom of the press comes at a time of unparalleled global crisis. Trusted news reporting from and about China has never been more important. We oppose government interference with a free press anywhere in the world. Our commitment to reporting fully and deeply on China is unchanged.
