China’s Fifty Cent Party Expands Operations To Foreign Websites

RFA Unplugged: China’s “Fifty Cent Party” which contributes the to official propaganda and censorship by mass posting on blogs and websites critical of the Government appears to be moving from a solely domestic operation to an international one.

Ursla Hay writing in the Huffington Post says she was under attack from the “Fifty Cent Party” even before she had been told her first blog had been uploaded.

Her well written and informative piece shows what can only be described as a disturbing escalation in the battle over freedom of speech and internet freedoms.

Not only are the Chinese authorities lengthening their reach in order to counter what they see as negative publicity they are doing it in a way that uses the very concept of “freedom of speech” to attack it.
