China remains the most dangerous place for journalists

China remains the most dangerous place for journalists

The dictatorial Xi's China is the biggest global jailer of journalists with more than 100 behind bars, according to a press freedom group, as President Xi Jinping’s government tightened control over society.

PRC Xi’s government also was one of the biggest exporters of propaganda content, according to Reporters without Borders.  China ranked second to last on the group’s annual index of press freedom, behind only neighbour North Korea.

The ruling Communist Party has tightened already strict controls on media in China, where all newspapers and broadcasters are state-owned. Websites and social media are required to enforce censorship that bans material that might spread opposition to one-party rule. The model is unique since the West is critical of human rights abuses yet the internal rebellion is far away within the country.
