10 Forbidden Stories of 2009 in China (8)- Media control of Obama’s visit to China

Media control of Obama’s visit to China

When President Obama went to China, his appearances, and domestic reportage on them, were carefully stage-managed by CCP propaganda officials.

The most notable instance was the town hall meeting with students in Shanghai. As the White House’s centerpiece for the trip, it was supposed to be broadcast live on the largest state-owned national stations—a channel for Obama to reach the Chinese people directly.

At the last minute, however, Chinese authorities restricted it to Shanghai Television, a local station with limited reach. Commentary on major Web sites was censored and toned down.
Later in the trip an exclusive interview with Southern Weekend, an influential publication in Guangdong Province, was also intercepted by propaganda officials and half of it pulled from the print edition. The editors left a blank half-page with the cryptic message: “It’s not that everyone can become a big shot. But reading this, everyone can understand China.” (to be cont’d)
