The media is controlled by the state. Although independent media exist, their organizers operate in the shadows, changing their headquarters frequently and with great care. Longobardi believes that the government seeks to “control information and present its own version of events.” According to Reporters Without Borders, licensed journalists receive “detailed notification to all media outlets every day, including editorial guidelines and censored topics.”

The Committee to Protect Journalists denounced the persecution. In 2019, the organization issued a report in which it described the Chinese government as “an advocate for information censorship and control.” The document describes that Xi Jinping's government blocks most Western newspaper websites, such as the New York Times, BBC, and Bloomberg. In addition, academics and writers are required to delete posts and remove reports and likes on certain content.

The Chinese Communist Party is responsible for internal propaganda. The material is distributed by China Global Television Network and China Radio International, both of which are owned by the Chinese government. The state regulates the television and radio system.

The Chinese Constitution stipulates freedom of the press. Article 35 of the Charter states that “citizens of the People’s Republic of China shall enjoy freedom of expression, of the press, of assembly, of association, of marches and of street demonstrations.” However, Article 51 states that citizens’ exercise of their freedoms “shall not violate the interests of the state, society and society, nor the freedoms and legitimate rights of other citizens,” making the legislation more flexible.

“Winnie the Pooh” is banned on social media in China. The circulation of children's character images of Winnie the Pooh (or Pooh) has been banned by the Chinese government since activists used images of Pooh to mock Xi Jinping. However, the sale of toys and books related to the character occurs normally, and there are two Pooh attractions at Shanghai Disneyland.
