Robert Marquand: Beijing enforces the party line

From the Christian Science Monitor:

In a surprisingly broad and deep targeting of thought and expression here, authorities across China have shut or drastically curtailed college Internet message boards – a powerful vehicle for free exchange, and one used far more by non-students than students…

The crackdown is another phase of a broad and zealous campaign situated inside the central propaganda department that advocates a “strengthening of ideology” through stricter control over culture, education, and media. Significantly, the campaign runs concurrently with one of the most extensive political ideology programs for party members since the Cultural Revolution.
