China Issues New Restrictions Aimed at Protecting Its Culture – Chris Buckley

From The New York Times:

New regulations proposed by the Chinese government would keep additional foreign satellite broadcasters from entering the market and would strengthen restrictions on foreign television programs, books, newspapers and theater performances, all in an effort to tighten control over the country’s culture.

The regulations were announced on Tuesday by China’s Propaganda Department, the Ministry of Culture and four other regulators, and were published on Wednesday.
