Note to Foreign Students, late 2014
Before you came to China, you were aware of censorship by the Chinese government. You likely knew that Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, and some blog site hosts – blogspot, among others – were blocked by the Chinese government. You understand that the CCP is so desperately afraid of the Chinese people that it cannot tolerate information from the outside – or inside - that is too “dangerous” to Party longevity.
In 2012, both the New York Times and any news sites operated by Bloomberg were blocked by the Chinese government, in retaliation for reporting on the fabulous family wealth of wen jiabao and xi jinping. All of their sites are still blocked, including economic information and opinion from Paul Krugman, the Nobel prize winning economist.
