The New York Times piece about the hacking attack that hit the paper from China is so radioactive there that CNN was blocked in the country when it reported on the story.
CNN International’s Hala Gorani was doing an interview about the piece, which reported that the Times had been targeted by hackers for four months in the wake of its exposes on Wen Jiabao, the Chinese prime minister.
According to Gorani, all six minutes of her interview could not be seen.
CNN has been blocked in China before; in May, an Anderson Cooper report on a blind dissident was repeatedly censored.
