Real censorship
The Weekly Standard reprints the full transcript of President Bush's address last month to Tsinghua University in China -- including those portions of the speech the Official Chinese Media chose not to share with their readers. Judge for yourself whether any nuances were lost. (Via Media Minded.)

While you're at it, wave your flag a little. In this country, when the press is wrong, it's most often one of two things: An honest mistake (usually corrected in the next edition) or a misinterpretation due to ideological tunnel vision. This was a deliberate action by the Chinese government to limit what its people know.
