WikiLeaks Cable: NASDAQ Folded to Chinese Pressure

jjp9999 (2180664) writes "A WikiLeaks cable reveals that the NASDAQ folded to pressure from the Chinese regime and kicked out a US-based Chinese TV network, NTD TV. The Chinese Communist Party has been trying to block this station for years now, since it's one of the few major Chinese media that refuses to censor its content. Although they're blocked in Mainland China, they broadcast in with satellites. The timing of the incident aligns well with other actions launched by the CCP against the TV station. They used to broadcast into China through French satellite company Eutelsat, but their connection was cut. Reporters Without Borders investigated and found the Chinese regime was behind it. They now use a Taiwanese satellite."
