What we're reading this week...

By Sara Fischer, CNN

We've got a packed show this week on Reliable Sources with guest host Frank Sesno, Director of The George Washington University's School of Media and Public Affairs. As a former CNN Washington bureau chief, Sesno will bring a unique perspective to this week’s media headlines. We’ll discuss the continuing media coverage of the government shutdown, political fact-checking and more, but in the meantime; here are some other stories that caught our attention this week.

Liu Hu, Chinese Journalist, Arrested In Crackdown  A Chinese reporter was arrested on Friday and accused of defamation after reporting about corruption by the Chinese Government. This is the latest in a string of arrests in China for journalists speaking out against the government. The crackdown of speech on news websites and online blogs is seen by many as an attempt by the Chinese government to silence criticism against the ruling Communist Party.

Fox host apologizes for reporting fake news  Whoops! Fox News host Anna Kooiman accidentally reported a satirical story about President Obama offering to finance a museum of Muslim culture. The story was posted on the satirical website National Report in response to the Republican National Committee volunteering to pay to keep the World War II memorial open. Kooiman later tweeted out an apology.

Iran’s foreign minister in hospital with stress after newspaper misquote  Iran’s foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on his Facebook that criticisms of Iran’s outreach to the US have become so intense that they are causing him back pain and spasms. The main cause of the stress he said came from a headline of Kayhan which Zarif says misquoted him.
