Not much left to talk about… China bans 18 topics from media

BEIJING, March 26 (UPI) — The Chinese government has notified the country’s media outlets of 18 subjects banned from reporting, including corruption, yuan revaluation and food safety.

Liu Yunshan, director of the Communist Party’s publicity department, faxed the notifications to newspapers and radio, TV and Internet news outlets Sunday, one day before Google Inc. announced it was pulling its search Web site from the country, The Asahi Shimbun reported Friday.

The banned subjects include problems in Tibet and the Xinjiang Uighur autonomous region, difficulties faced by graduating students seeking jobs, the rising price of cooking oil and reports on criticism against China from U.S. officials and other international leaders.

“Most of the subjects that people are interested in have been banned. We don’t know what to report on,” an official at a Chinese newspaper told The Asahi Shimbun.
