Apple, Like the Rest of BigTech, Does the Chinese Communist Party’s Bidding. Bans Yahoo News App in China

This was the last outlet for Western news in China. The torture, the slavery, the child labor, the lack of environmental standards, the harvesting of organs by force and more, Big Tech like their allies in the Democratic Party, NBA , Nike and John Cena, not only do not care, but actively help to cover their crimes up. If you criticize these crimes of course you are a racist.

Yahoo news app, one of the last sources of Western news in China, is removed from Apple store amid censorship drive

Chinese internet users have lost one of their last avenues to foreign news after the Yahoo Finance app disappeared from Apple’s store, as the Communist Party intensifies its censorship of information from abroad.

The Yahoo app republishes news from foreign media organisations, including outlets whose websites are blocked in China, such as Bloomberg and Reuters, as well as stock market data.

This allowed users to skirt official censorship bans, a feature that likely drew the ire of Chinese authorities. 

Beijing’s crackdown on foreign content and influence in China has affected everything from private school curricula to karaoke bar songs.

Chinese government censors have always tightly controlled news and information, blocking access to foreign media websites and social media networks, such as the BBC, New York Times, Facebook, Google and Twitter. 

“Recently Apple has been removing many apps at the demand of the Chinese authorities,” said Benjamin Ismail, project director at Apple Censorship, an organisation that tracks which apps are available, and where. 

“But complying with governments’ orders is different than complying with law, especially in China, where the authorities often resort to extralegal means to muzzle the press, bloggers, activists or any dissenting voices.”
