China Media Bulletin

A biweekly update of press freedom and censorship news related to the People's Republic of China

In November 2010, Freedom House launched the China Media Bulletin, a news digest and succinct analysis focusing on traditional media and internet freedom issues related to the People's Republic of China. Drawing on both English and Chinese-language sources, every two weeks the China Media Bulletin includes sections that examine key broadcast and print media, as well as new media and technology developments in the PRC. In addition, this biweekly review covers the main media freedom developments in Tibet and Xinjiang, as well as in Hong Kong. It also tracks the Chinese government's growing engagement in censorship, propaganda, and media investments beyond China’s borders, including in the United States, Africa, Latin America, and Europe.

In celebration of the Lunar New Year, the editors of the China Media Bulletin have compiled a few of our favorite CMB “Photos of the Week” from the Year of the Snake. It’s worth noting that most of these images are censored on China’s internet, as they touch on subjects that are considered sensitive by the Chinese government.
