Taiwan's Next Media group shares suspended amid sale talk

Shares in Next Media, one of Taiwan's most popular media companies, remain suspended on Wednesday amid reports that the Hong Kong-based firm's Taiwan operations have been sold to a Taiwanese consortium.

The deal comes as people in Taiwan are increasingly concerned about growing control of the island's media by corporations with political leanings or economic interests in China.
