Targets Google, Baidu, Sina, among others

 

Chinese authorities have announced they'll start a massive clampdown of websites that spread porn and vulgarity, thus corrupting the country's youth. The action is expected to launch one month.

The decision was announced following a meeting of China's State Council Information Office, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the Ministry of Public Security, the Ministry of Culture, the State Administration for Industry and Commerce, the State Administration of Radio Film and Television and the General Administration of Press and Publication.

Cai Mingzhao, vice director general for the State Council Information Office, claims vulgarity is widespread on the world wide wibble, and it "seriously harms the physical and mental health of Chinese youth and directly harms the interests and rights of Chinese people". Apparently, the filth goes against China's social morals, laws and regulations.

During the meeting, which preceded the announcement, 19 sites were found to contain pornography and vulgar content, and have failed to remedy take action to clean up their act. Here's the list: Google, Baidu, Sina.com, Sohu.com, QQ.com, NetEase.com, Chinaren.com, Zhongsou.com, Mop.com, OpenV.com, Vodone.com, Tianya.cn, Uuu9.com, Yesky.com, Hefei.cc, Tiexue.net, 131.com, SoGua.com, and Kuaiche.com.
