Press Freedom and Foreign Correspondents in China
A few thoughts (ultimate source here). It's a battle about controlling the public narrative. Call it "media wars," and they're happening right now (here's one example). You'd have to be a fool to believe the stuff put out by Xinhua and outfits like that, but there are lots of fools. On a related note, I've blogged before about academics trying to do research in China and being persecuted, bullied, and blacklisted.
