Big Brother Is Watching (China Cuts Out Legs of Blogs Before They Can Even Start)

BEIJING (Reuters)"The state bans the spreading of any news with content that is against national security and public interest," the official Xinhua news agency said in announcing the new rules, which took effect immediately. [...] The news agency did not detail the rules, but said Internet news sites must "be directed toward serving the people and socialism and insist on correct guidance of public opinion for maintaining national and public interests."

Not to slip in the hidden traps that American Governmental leadership now finds itself, China ensured that no one will be able to use the internet to hold them accountable.

Essentially, this a Bloggers-Be-Ware sign on the Great Wall.
