Chinese President Calls for Web “Propaganda War”

Of course he does:

“Xi [Jinping, Chinese president] also ordered the propaganda apparatus to form a strong Internet army to seize the ground of new media,” that source said.

A media source, meanwhile, told the newspaper that Xi instructed the officials to “unite all intellectuals,” a remark interpreted as an order to round up as much support as possible among that sector for the party’s agenda.

Xi’s speech coincided with a stepped-up campaign by the central government against Web “rumor-mongering,” a crackdown that has included numerous arrests.
