Remember the legislation in Congress to censor and limit access to the internet in the US to favor corporations? Remember the laws that gets people arrested for posting something that someone says is a hate post? Yea, China is so evil, and the US is so perfect and free.
In some fantasy world that is.

I don’t know if that is still the case, but smaller sites that report off the main ones may also prove a source of information.
