‘At the recent China Internet Media Forum, People’s Daily Public Opinion Monitoring Unit director Zhu Huaxin (祝華新）presented a study illustrating the initial impact of an online offensive launched by the Chinese Communist Party in August of this year.’
This study comes on the heels of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s declaration to his Party leaders that ideological control over the internet is crucial to the party paltform, and must be given complete priority. This magazine has reported numerous times about China’s “internet army” of sleuths built to control sentiment on the country.
The aforementioned study has offered proof that the offensive taken by China to control sentiment on the internet has been succesful — a dangerous sign for advocates of free internet and anti-censorship.
