The real China news

Admist all the ongoing bashing of American companies that are being labelled traitors and collaborators with the Chinese government in internet censorship efforts, important developments are likely to be missed. For example the IHT reports on an extra-ordinary protest by senior ex-officials of the CCP and scholars against the closure of Beijing magazine Freezing Point. Amongst the protesters is Mao's former secretary and biographer, Liu Rui. Absolutely read the whole article.

Another must read piece is ESWN's translation of an article in Caijing, seen as a veiled warning from the central government to the provinces to avoid obstructing reforms through their collaboration with local businesses.

Microsoft, Yahoo and Google scandals and ex-officials letter are related issues, Simon. Both speak of China's repression, both are "real China".
