The Chinese Government Unblocked BBC News Site? All stories are accessible

Mar 25, 2008

Information superhighway is just not the same when censorship comes to play; China has been blocking many websites in order to “shield” its people from being exposed to the outspoken world.

China has been nicknamed “The Great Firewall of China” for frequently controlling the Internet content availability to its people, that includes entries on BBC News website.

Surprisingly, BBC website was accessible as a whole by the Chinese people and BBC staff working in China were able to view stories that would fall into “No view” category. When contents are being blocked, users will received a redirected message of "The connection was reset." Sad to say, many sites are still being block in China today.
