Report: China Censors Warehouse Blast Coverage
It’s not only because of the widespread, hard-to-get-to damage, but because Chinese authorities are intervening in their reporting.
CBS News correspondent Seth Doane reports that local TV stations were giving “little coverage of the story.”
Doane was outside a hospital when censors tried to prevent him from reporting.
Doane describes how officials are controlling the flow of information after dozens were killed in the blasts at a toxic chemical and gas warehouse.
