China Censors Obama

Perhaps because us youngins’ seem to only read about these things in history books, I’m always a bit surprised to see  news like this:  China censors parts of Obama’s inaugural speech

China Central Television (CCTV) suddenly cut off its live broadcast of the speech during a paragraph that mentioned communism and fascism as two forces Americans had fought against. […]

But in the translated versions of the address, Sina and other web sites omitted a paragraph observers understood as aimed at China: ”To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history, but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.”
