Why China Blocks BBC News Website?
- 0 Comments
If it were true that China or the Chinese Government is preventing its people from browsing BBC News website, then I don't understand why China has to do it. BBC News Online, in the first place, is not critical of China. BBC offers fair and balance news. The BCC Online does not even contain any ads from giant companies. Why stop people from browsing news in BBC? I need an explanation. I want to understand. What is China afraid of that BBC knows about?
The latest development is that people in China can now access the BBC News website – the English version but not the Chinese version. Until today China has not said it is blocking and unblocking the BBC website. Here's the report of the BBC.
People in China are able to access English language stories on the BBC News website in full, after years of strict control by Beijing.
The Communist authorities often block news sites such as the BBC in a policy dubbed the "great firewall of China".
But BBC staff working in China now say they are able to access news stories that would have been blocked before.
However, the firewall remains in place for Chinese language services on the website and for any links in Chinese.
