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.

“The Chinese media and Internet scene has become increasingly diverse and dynamic. The volume of news is so huge that people following China need help sorting out the most interesting and significant stories. For anyone interested in China, the China Media Bulletin has become an invaluable aid to understanding Chinese internal dynamics through Chinese media sources.” – Susan L. Shirk, Professor of Politics, University of California San Diego, and Former-Deputy Assistant Secretary of State
“The China Media Bulletin is essential reading for anyone interested in the growing and diverse challenges to media freedom in China. And even more than in other countries, the media in China are a bellwether for the general state of political freedom. Given that the authorities’ means of limiting freedom are so diverse and ingenious, and the Chinese media scene is so vast, it is quite helpful to have a service like the China Media Bulletin that can systematically pinpoint key events and track what, lately at least, has been a disturbing trend toward diminishing freedom.” – Andrew J. Nathan, Professor of Politics, Columbia University
