This is a bit odd. How could anyone describe what’s on the BBC as “news” or “information”? It’s been a long time since the BBC was worth listening too. Mind you Reuters is heading the same way, it could be renamed as the Potemkin Press given the tripe it keeps producing.

The same BBC that pushed to get single man radio stations brought down in the UK, the same UK that comes into your home to inspect your TV if you haven’t bought a license.

Does BBC have a license in China?

The dragging Taiwan into this is old and unnecessary. The 2 countries get along quite well resolving their own issues.
In fact should any conflict arise with Taiwan be it with Japan or Vietnam, Philipines etc China (and apparently the US?) will step in too.

CNN is routinely censored when it reports on controversial topics, and both Bloomberg Businessweek and the NY Times have been blocked since reporting on the wealth accumulated by the families of well-known Chinese leaders.

BBC had blatantly lied in regards to the killings in Tibet by showing a movies as news. No one would want to listen to this propaganda machine.

I live in Guangzhou, China. I obtain my news and views from website of Reuters everyday and websites of CNN and BBC a couple times a week since about 5 years without encountering any problem. But I have not viewed and listened to any foreign broadcast. I am able to read adverse news and views against China all the time including this report.
