No laughing matter: China regulator bans TV parodies amid content crackdown

Recommended Posts

China's media regulator is cracking down on video spoofs, the official Xinhua new agency reported, amid an intensified crackdown on any content that is deemed to be in violation of socialist core values under President Xi Jinping.

The decision comes after Xi cemented his power at a recent meeting of parliament by having presidential term limits scrapped, and the ruling Communist Party tightened its grip on the media by handing control over film, news and publishing to its powerful publicity department.

Xinhua said video sites must ban videos that "distort, mock or defame classical literary and art works", citing a directive from the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television on Thursday.

I wonder what specifically they want to stop being spoofed. I know the state some things in the article but to me they seem like pointless reasons. There must be a deeper meaning or reason!
