Categories: East Asia, China, Freedom of Speech, Governance, Media & Journalism

The Chinese government announced plans to merge two censorship departments, the General Administration of Press and Publication and the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) on March 10, 2013. The proposed name of the new agency is extremely long and netizens are putting forward their own innovative names, including State Administration of Castration (阉局) and Ministry of Nothing after Cutting (一剪没). More from China Beat [1].
