Chinese Pop Culture Police

From the CSMonitor, a tale of pop culture regulation:

In China, foreign-culture imports are carefully watched and vetted. No organized initiatives, no serious advertising, no creation of media fads or buzz can take place without party approval.

Approved: Lions Clubs. Not approved: anime.

Lots of weird notes on Chinese culture in here.
