Gotta love China Digital Times. They often get directives form the Chinese Propaganda Ministry about what may and may not be discussed in the Chinese media.
Here are a couple highlights from Directives from the Ministry of Truth (Update)
- Regarding Guangzhou government employees receiving 1.4 billion yuan [US$219 bn] in free health care annually, surpassing health coverage for 2.1 million peasants: Do not report, comment or republish anything on this issue.
- Regarding heavy metals found in certain batches of Yili Brand milk powder and the seven-month pregnant women in Yuping Village, Cengjia Town, Zhenping County, Ankang City, Shaanxi Province who underwent forced labor: if any media outlet reports on these stories, only Xinhua News Agency’s wire copy may be used. Do not hype these stories, do not exaggerate them, and do not offer in-house reporting or commentary.
