Freezing Point, a weekly supplement to the China Youth Daily newspaper started in 1995, was known for its insightful investigative reporting in the early 2000s. After Yuan Weishi published an article critical of education about the Boxer Rebellion in early 2006, the magazine was briefly suspended, then reorganized without some of its harder-hitting reporters. Freezing Point still has a welcome presence on WeChat, where you can read a few "classic articles" f
rom 2015 on topics such as the lives of China's rural elderly and the summer stock market tumble.
