China controls the internet more than just about anywhere in the world. However, the censors are struggling to contain the outrage at the coronavirus outbreak. There's widespread anger that the disease has killed Li Wenliang, one of the first doctors to sound the alarm over the new virus. He was arrested by police and forced to confess to "spreading rumours". Users of China's social media network Weibo described his death as a national humiliation. Even state media is backing public calls for government leaders to say sorry for silencing him. Can China's leaders contain the online anger about the cover-up?
Hilarious: "Chinese society enjoys freedom of speech...and access to information.................under the law" That is comedy gold right there.
