The fierce conflict between Baidu and today's headlines reflects the fierce competition in the information flow market.
Since 2017, with Baidu power flow business, its direct competition with today's headlines, the recent period, the friction between Baidu and today's headlines intensified.

Through media reports, we noticed the accusations that we are currently claiming today's "unfair competition in Baidu." First of all, we would like to advise on today's headlines that your recent series of public relations actions and litigation will not cure your anxiety about the development predicament.
It should be noted that, Baidu's natural search results, and user needs, relevance, timeliness, the user's click behavior and a series of related factors. Headlines this accusation as "old news" of this search results, and today's headlines due to content vulgar punishment corrections by the relevant departments are closely related to the social hot spots, but also with the user to find a variety of information needs of the app fit, so Not surprisingly arranged.
In addition, we noticed headlines announced Baidu search "headlines today" results screen, deliberately through the drop-page way, hidden "today's headlines" part of the brand zone, and this part of almost occupy the search results The first screen of the entire area, fully able to meet the user search and download today's top product demand, today's headlines so-called Baidu "unfair competition" clearly deliberately sidestepped this fact.
We also noticed that in a statement released today by the headlines, deliberate fabrication of "baidu technicians, especially the heavy loss of search and AI-recommended technicians," and other untrue statements have hurt Baidu's goodwill. In fact, Baidu App's information flow business has achieved rapid development, in just one year, to become the leader in this market, active in the daily users, the total number of active users significantly ahead of the key indicators. Therefore, we reserve the right to take legal actions to safeguard the rights and interests of malicious rumors in today's headlines.
Difficulties in the development of enterprises themselves, into anxiety, should not pass public relations war and litigation and other inappropriate ways of passing, not to disrupt the normal media environment of public opinion, invade the public legal resources, resulting in adverse social impact. Baidu will continue to increase product development efforts to enhance the user experience, providing hundreds of millions of Internet users with high-quality, personalized information flow services, and believe the law will give the case a fair ruling.
