Differences in China's interaction with the media versus the U.S.

The call for a "Jasmine Revolution" in Beijing a few weeks ago yielded few results, yet the Chinese government is still cracking down on reporters. The overreaction of the Chinese government and their oppression of the media shows how different their government reacts with media sources. Here is a youtube video posted by CNN about the story: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lK-THIA-JA&feature=relmfu

  1. Here is a link to a great article on this topic in The New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/07/world/asia/07china.html?pagewanted=1&_r=1. It will be interesting to see how long the Chinese government continues this heightened tracking level and what effect, if any, it will have on both their national and international support.
