Media Analysis (Major News Story) #3


China’s Internet crackdown aims to quell criticism

This act by China’s State Internet Information office,
which punishes people from posting rumours and falsehoods online, has many glitches.
Although this would be in theory, a great idea to prevent people from making up
lies and posting them on the internet, consider those who are telling the
truth. Consider those citizens that post news that is true and the government labels
it as a rumour for their own private agenda.  Citizens that post “false” information would
be charged with 5-10 days in prison and an eighty dollar fine. This act has many
malfunctions that restricts citizen’s free speech and although it has good intentions,
it should be thought through more thoroughly.
