Beijing Evening News (Chinese: 北京晚报; Pinyin: Běijīng Wǎnbào) is a Chinese language tabloid newspaper in the People's Republic of China from Beijing. It was founded on March 15, 1958. Mao Zedong wrote the title for it in 1964.
It featured the best-selling novel Beijinger in New York by Glen Cao as a television series in 1991. In 2002, it was found to have lifted a fake article about the U.S. Congress' Supposed Move From Washington D.C. in protest of better facilities from The Onion.
