New Freedom, and Peril, in Online Criticism of China

Date: April 17, 2008
Authors: Ariana Eunjung Cha and Jill Drew
QUOTE: In the wake of the violence that has rocked Tibet and the protests over the Olympic torch relay, online bulletin boards in China have erupted with virulent comments rooted in nationalist sentiments. On some sites, emotional Chinese have exchanged personal information about critics and hunted them down. Such situations have become so common that some users refer to the sites as "human flesh search engines."
