This article is biased[edit]

This article appears to be biased against the Chinese government's censorship policies. There are occasional biased wordings (e.g. "mainland media came under tremendous pressure"), and the government's views are not given WP:DUE inclusion. I suggest trying to remedy these problems.--Randallmarshall (talk) 03:24, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

Before I had edited this article, the problem that you were complaining about was even worse: wp:weasel words like "is widely seen" were used, and there were unsourced statements like "Additionally, censorship prevents Chinese citizens from discovering or learning more about past and current failures of the Communist Party that could create or inflame anti-government sentiment.". We must make this article more neutral and add more reliable sources to it.
I have made the article more neutral by adding to the lede evidence that censorship is not necessarily bad as one is led to believe by western media.--DeNileMop (talk)
I was going to reply to the above two comments but then I thought I should probably wait until MoppenStaggen made their "we need to respect the "Chinese government/ Chinese Communist party" affirmation. Btw, "not necessarily bad" is still an admission that it's, well, bad... Hammersbach (talk) 03:02, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
I agree. We definitely need more neutrality in this article. --TransversalAngle (talk) 01:46, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
You know what? Maybe you have a point. I have always thought of censorship as an inherently bad thing, but now I see that I might be being deceived by western media, which has an inherent conflict of interest against the Chinese government. We must use more reliable sources to make this article more neutral. Perhaps we should talk about how censorship can benefit society: it increases social stability and makes the economy better.--SochPulpet (talk) 01:58, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
I believe that right now, the issue of bias has been fixed and the much-needed balance and neutrality has been added to the article. Thanks for everybody's hard work!--Likliklik0 (talk) 20:46, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
Looks perfect! Probably just how the PRC propaganda department would like to see it. -- Ohc ¡digame! 20:57, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
We are not from the PRC propaganda department. We are just a bunch of new editors created within seconds of eachother who are inexplicably interested in Censorship in China.--TransversalAngle (talk) 22:14, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
I totally agree with your proposal to eliminate the anti-government bias and lies. Historically editor, I see this has been completed, but already under review by pro-American administrator. Ironically, they are reviewing how we about China's Internet censorship to say the truth page; they do not actually want freedom of expression. They just want to review the objection.--IloveCHN1984 (talk) 02:10, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
No! Your wrong, because we must not censor anything! Censorship is bad! All children should be able to watch porn!--Dsaffdasfaa (talk) 22:12, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Rollback[edit]

I have rolled back the article to the last clean version, reverting about 25 edits of apparent vandalism. -- Ohc ¡digame! 17:25, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Censorship in China. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Cheers.—cyberbot IITalk to my owner:Online 10:00, 18 February 2016 (UTC)

History of Censorship In China[edit]

I liked the history of censorship in the article could have been expanded. This may allow for more context in the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Waldosearchparty (talkcontribs) 06:36, 15 April 2016 (UTC)
