Reuters is the latest news site to be blocked in China. The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg News have all had their sites previously blocked. Users attempting to access Reuters’ English and Chinese language sites noticed the problem yesterday.
China’s Internet regulator, unsurprisingly, had nothing to offer on the issue.
Meanwhile, a Reuters spokesperson issued a statement. “Reuters is committed to practicing fair and accurate journalism worldwide. We recognize the great importance of news about China to all our customers, and we hope that our sites will be restored in China soon.”
