This is a transcript from Correspondents Report. The program is broadcast around Australia on Sundays. John Taylor in Beijing talked about the media control in China.
“China though is changing. More people are becoming richer and more educated, and the country is becoming more urbanised. The ranks of the middle-class are swelling, as are university admissions.
While politically China’s Government represses its people, economically it’s removing the shackles.
Change is also happening in the media, some supported by the government, and some not.”
