The article focuses on the move by China to block access to YouTube, Yahoo News and other popular web sites in an attempt to censor coverage of the violence and protesting in Lhasa, Tibet. China has a history of censoring web sites that publish political content disapproved of by the authorities. Journalism professor Xiao Qiang said the explosive growth of Internet users in the country has increased the flow of information in the country, giving ordinary Chinese more ways to express themselves.
