No more get smart in China

"China has ordered TV stations across the country not to air any detective shows, spy thrillers or dramas about time-travel for the next three months."

We all know that China has somewhat more control over its citizens than the west, but this often comes to light in disturbing ways. The recent move in the lead up to a celebration of Chinese state propaganda... so why not celebrate it with a massive exercise in media control?
The advantages of such a move are very debatable.. But I guess if you can simply tell the mainstream news that they cannot broadcast something that would cast suspicion, Wouldn't you?  I guess it will take longer than thought for democratic impulse to truly have an effect

  3. This is horrible. I'm gonna spread awareness of China's censorship. I know of a really informative video about it, so my next post will be covering this topic. I'll try to put it up tomorrow. It's a little off from the usual funny stuff I share, but it's funny in it's own right. :)

    Censorship that represses the pursuit of knowledge is absolutely ridiculous. :\

  26. China has clearly caught the Doctor and doesn't want to develop a sense of sentimentality with his plight among the Chinese people.
