China Covid: Chinese TV Censors Shots Of Maskless World Cup Fans

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the BBC.

These two paragraphs outline China’s censorship of the World Cup.

The phrase “football is nothing without fans” has become so accepted as to be cliché among some commentators. But Chinese state TV has been testing that assumption to its limit throughout the World Cup.

On Monday, as Ghana beat South Korea in a classic World Cup clash, subtle changes to China’s coverage of the match ensured viewers were not exposed to images of maskless supporters – and to a world moving on from Covid restrictions.

Autocratic regimes who act like China and Russia are doing now, have always come to a sticky and violent end.

When will these idiots ever learn?
