“Black Jails” in China?

The Chinese media has leaked that there are “Black Jails” in China. CNN reports that a state-run weekly confirmed the “black jails” although government officials say otherwise. The Human Rights Watch has launched an investigation, however, if the Government is in on this, who’s to say we will find out if it is true or not? The only way we will find out is through the first outage itself, the media.

Is the Chinese media moving away from a government ran media to a westernized one? Has the Chinese media turned in to one of agenda-setting and framing? The media has taken a stand and are showing and exposing the stories they believe they see fit. As the first to speak of it, the media has framed this story of “Black Jails.”

As China’s media becomes more westernized, who knows what else what happen or leak out to the public? It’s an interesting road ahead.
