China Blacks Out Part Of CNN Interview

By Brian 

The Los Angeles Times reports: “China apparently blacked out parts of a CNN interview with Hong Kong’s leader when he began discussing moves toward democratic reform in the territory.

During CNN’s ‘Talk Asia’ program, Donald Tsang was talking about his plans to consult the Hong Kong public on how to bring universal suffrage to the territory, which is ruled by China but has a wide degree of autonomy.

The show then abruptly went to commercials, after which the screen blacked out momentarily.”
