China Censors Obama's Speech

Did you know that parts of Obama's inauguration speech were censored in China?

That's right.  The Chinese media seemed to cut out parts of Obama's speech that referred to "facing down fascism and communism" and "silencing of dessent."  

In fact, in this clip from CNN, CCTV news reporters seemed to grow silent and cut back to the studio once they reach the part in Obama's speech about "facing down communism."

It's an interesting clip; take a moment to look at it!

What are your thoughts in general about China's censorship laws?  Do you feel like they are protecting their citizens or hurting them?  I want to hear your thoughts, so comment away!

Until next time,
