China blocks media’s access to Olympics websites

Olympic Rings in Beijing

There have been some major issues during the Beijing Olympics over the past several weeks, and it would appear the Chinese government is trying its best to mask some of them.

With the Winter Olympics wrapping up on Sunday, Nathan Fenno of the Los Angeles Times tweeted that he and others who are staying in the Beijing bubble have been denied access to several Olympics-related websites.

Fenno is not the first member of the media to report an issue with accessing certain sites.

Though troubling, that is hardly a surprise. Censorship is nothing new for the Chinese government, and we’ve seen it with other sports as well.

A lot of athletes and members of the media are probably happy that the Olympics are coming to an end.
