BEIJING — China todaydismissed as rumor reportsthat retired President JiangZemin, who led the coun-try through massive changesafter the crushing of the 1989Tiananmen Square democra-cy movement, has died.The official Xinhua NewsAgency quoted what it calledauthoritative sources as sayingthe reports were “pure rumor.”The one-sentence dispatch inEnglish wasn’t carried by theChinese-language service of the state-run agency, indicat-ing it was meant for overseasaudiences.The need to commentunderscores the difficultiesthe secretive, authoritariangovernment faces in control-ling information. While statemedia are under tight con-trol, foreign reports seep intoChina via the Internet, givingChinese access to news —and rumors — the leadershipdislikes.An official from theCabinet’s information officesaid only, “It’s a rumor,”when asked about Jiang’sdeath. The official, like manyin China, would give only hersurname, Li.Foreign Ministry spokes-man Hong Lei refused tocomment directly on Jiang,referring reporters at a regularnews conference today to theXinhua report.The denials follow days of intense online conjecture overwhether Jiang, 84, had diedor was close to death, fueledby his failure to appear at lastFriday’s celebration of the90th anniversary of the rulingCommunist Party’s founding.A Hong Kong TV sta-tion and Japanese and SouthKorean media had reportedJiang had died. None of thereports had named sources,and the Hong Kong broad-caster, ATV, retracted thereport and apologized to itsaudience, Jiang and his fam-ily today.While the rumors weresuppressed on the mainland,they were widely reported inthe semiautonomous Chineseterritory that’s promisedWestern-style civil libertiesincluding freedom of speech.The speculation was splashedon the front pages of lead-ing Hong Kong newspaperstoday.
