Journalist Chen Yongzhou gives his confession in a detention room at the Changsha Public Security Bureau detention centre in Changsha City, Hunan Province, in this still image taken from China Central Television (CCTV) video shot on October 25, 2013. Chen, arrested last week on charges he defamed state-owned construction equipment maker Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science and Technology Co. Ltd, on Saturday confessed on state television to accepting bribes for fabricating stories, despite a public outcry over his detention. Chen's lengthy explanation of how he invented negative stories about the Changsha-based firm is the latest in a series of televised confessions by suspects in high-profile or politicised cases.
