TV censorship in China

What could come after increased controls of the Internet, cybercafes, blogs and chatrooms?

If you read the headline, you guessed it right - television.

"China has greatly liberalized media markets over the past three years and satellite broadcasters such as News Corp. and Viacom have moved in." Now, the trend is reversed. "In a new attempt to reassert control over popular culture, China has barred new foreign television channels and plans to step up censorship of imported programs."

"It also banned programs about crime or violence in prime time in order to promote a "healthy environment" for children."
