60 years of media censorship in China

This is a great summary of the nature of the media in China since the founding of modern China in 1949. Sixty years of news media and censorship.

The Internet and use of mobile phones provide a few avenues to get around the censors despite the efforts of the central government. Eventually the leadership in Beijing will have to understand it can’t keep information and truth bottled up.
