China Blocks Economist and Time Websites, Apparently Over Xi Jinping Articles: New York Times

| By: Dan McDevitt

From the article: “The Economist and Time have joined the list of foreign news websites currently blocked in mainland China. The sites appear to have been censored as a result of recently published cover articles in the magazines critical of the growing power of China’s president, Xi Jinping.

According to GreatFire.org, a website that tracks Internet and social media censorship in China, The Economist’s website and its cover article have been completely censored since April 2. The Economist’s mobile app, through which users can download the magazine and read its online articles, has also been censored.”
