GOING GLOBAL

BBC World News has been banned from airing in China, one week after British media regulator Ofcom withdrew China Global Television Network’s license to broadcast in the UK. China’s National Radio and Television Administration claimed that BBC World News had broadcast reports on China that “infringed the principles of truthfulness and impartiality in journalism.” “China’s decision to ban BBC World News in mainland China is an unacceptable curtailing of media freedom,” Britain’s Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said in a statement. “China has some of the most severe restrictions on media and internet freedoms across the globe and this latest step will only damage China’s reputation in the eyes of the world.”
