New Rules in China Affect "Internet News"

More heartwarming news China: China sets new rules on Internet news, is a story in the Washington Post that has these small snippets of what the "new rules" for internet news mean:

"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."

Lovely...
