China sentences reporter who faked cardboard buns story to 1 year in jail - International Herald Tribune

Zi Beijia was so hungry for fame that he faked a story about a street vendor who made dumplings from cardboard. At least that's what the Chinese court decided before it slapped him with a one year prison term. I suppose the sentence could have been much worse but my gut tells me that the only thing the guy was guilty of was creating more bad PR for the Chinese food machine.
