Submission + - China blocking NYT (guardian.co.uk) 1

Taco Cowboy writes: The New York Times becomes the latest target of the Chinese censorship.

Censors of the People's Republic of China, in an almost unheard, of, truly remarkable feat of neck-breaking speed, blocked the (paywall) website of the New York Times, all because of one news article.

The gist of that particular news article was about the enormous wealth of the family members of a very prominent figure in the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) — Chinese Premier Wen Jia Bao.

The amount of wealth in question total some USD 2.7 BILLIONS
