Immediately out of the gate it does not look promising. Media are going to be limited in their internet access by Chinese officials during the Olympics, according to Breitbart.com, who reported:
China will censor the Internet used by foreign media during the Olympics, an organising committee official confirmed Wednesday, reversing a pledge to offer complete media freedom at the games.With the Chinese government censoring unspecified websites, it could be a clash of the West meeting the East ... the Western journalists who are used to having most everything their way ... and the Chinese government that is used to having most everything its way.
"During the Olympic Games we will provide sufficient access to the Internet for reporters," said Sun Weide, spokesman for the organising committee. [emphasis added]
"Let the censoring begin!" The fun starts 8-8-08.
