China's Media Meltdown

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

As the Chinese economy expands based on free-market principles, the Chinese government continues to clamp down on the media and Internet, concealing things like the SARS outbreak, HIV-AIDS, peasant uprisings, mine disasters and party corruption - virtually anything that reflects poorly on the central government. It makes one wonder about its recent reporting on the avian flu in China.

Please join us as we discuss the state of Chinese media and Internet freedom as well as the consequences for its 1.3 billion citizens - and the world.
