NY Times banned in China?
Sorry to sound like a broken record on China’s Web censorship, but this is truly alarming: I’ve been trying to access The New York Times and the Washington Post all morning, only to get the Cannot Find Server message for both sites. This has never happened before (at least not on my watch), so I wonder what’s motivating it now. Maybe it’s just a fluke, but that’s what I thought the first day of the blogout. There are very few flukes here. Things are as they are because someone wants them that way.
