    No doubt the censored story will be published elsewhere, but Chinese control of the foreign press in Honk Kong is insidious.

    Upholders of freedom or speech and expression get scared by those who don't.

    How is this different from the NYT and WaPo making decisions on what to publish and what not to based on "feedback" from the US government? "Free" media is non-existent, they are in reality controlled by corporate interests who make editorial decisions based on what makes them money and does not get them into trouble with the government, whether that government be the Chinese or US or any other.

    At least the Chinese government is open and honest about its censorship unlike the USG. :rolleyes: Last I heard the USG still had a sealed indictment against the editor of Wikileaks.

    In fact US government is becoming as repressive as government of China. Obama has said he would prefer to be president of China.
