Chinese Websites Establish “Self-discipline Commissioners”

China Digital Times:

Hong Kong Ming Pao reports, during an Internet Oversight Meeting recently held in Beijing, the government gave orders to all Internet media about establishing a “self-discipline commissioner.” Eight websites which have micro-blogging services – Sina, Sohu, Netease, Iphonixe, Hexun, SOufang, 139Mobile and Juyou9911 – will make a commitment to set up a “self-discipline commissioner.”

Those “self-discipline commissioners” are specifically responsible for monitoring and censoring online information including porn, violence and politically-sensitive content. Although “self-discipline commissioner” is responsible to his/her own Internet media, his/her work agenda is independent from those company’s internal editorial control processes.
