There is a sharp contradiction in the internet media of China. While on one hand, the Chinese government is attempting to tighten the noose of censorship on the internet community of China, on the other hand there are a growing number of Chinese internet users, which exceeds 400 million, who are extremely proactive on the internet, thus helping the private sector dot com companies to rake in billions of dollars. The market capitalization of the top 30 listed companies make US $100 in revenue, with three of them operating from China, namely Alibaba, Tencent and Baidu. Hence there is clear evidence that the internet is growing at a swift pace in China. On the contrary, the state is trying to suppress the internet. So what exactly explains this dichotomy?
