Jeremy Goldkorn

Beijing-based internet watcher Jeremy Goldkorn discusses on Australian TV the latest move by British prime minister David Cameron to censor social media to prevent social unrest. China’s state media ended up gloating as Cameron took to the Chinese view on censorship.

China’s internet censorship has been rather effective, Goldkorn argues, although it has not stop social media from allowing people to take to the street like last week in Dalian and challenge the government after the train crash in Wenzhou. Social media, although heavily censored, still force both traditional media and the government to change.
