China: Media censorship

The Life After Jiangxi blogger describes life on the media-restricted Chinese mainland.

“I go to these posh hotels, and watch BBCWorld and realise that the situation in Nepal is pretty serious or intense or even godforbid revolutionary. Then I come back to my normal life, with information provided by CCTV [China Central Television] and the internet, and it's as if Nepal has just been blotted out from the surface of the world. Spooky.”
