【新唐人2014年07月26日讯】中共近期开始了新一轮打击所谓“网络谣言”的行动。目前,已经有47家网站被关停整改,39名网民被查处。为争夺互联网的话语权,当局花费数亿人民币,成立两家新媒体网站。评论表示,中共越是这样折腾,越说明它的脆弱和恐慌。

中共互联网信息办公室22号公布,互联网信息办公室、工信部、公安部正在开展联合打击“网路谣言”行动。自7月15号以来,已经关停三批因所谓管理不力、任由“谣言”传播的网站。

其中,“赣州在线”、“中国将军政要网”等4家网站被关闭;“篱笆网”、“回龙观社区”、“昆山论坛”等43家网站被关停整改;“虎扑体育论坛”、“邳州论坛”被暂停更新。

之前,公安部门还行政拘留了两名网民,说他们发布“上海空中管制抓郭伯雄”等消息,并对另外37名传播相关信息的网民进行了处罚和训诫。

另外,还有一批网民被通报工作单位,接受教育。

时事评论员林子旭表示,中共越是这样从上到下的折腾,越说明中共在网路言论这个环节上的脆弱,由此也让人们看出中共对网路的恐慌。

时事评论员林子旭:“中国古人讲:防民之口,甚于防川,尤其是到了网路高度发达的今天,进一步牵制舆论,只能让民众更加憎恶中共这个体制。一时的打压或许能收到短期效果,但是讲话是人的天性,越压制民众说话的欲望就会越强烈。就包括中共用以打压舆论的这些网警,在他们了解了越来越多的事实真相以后,不知道有几个人还会那么愚蠢的帮助中共欺压老百姓。”

北京时政观察人士华颇也认为,中共严打所谓的“网路谣言”是太过恐慌,就怕网民的质疑与批评,对它专制统治的合法性造成威胁。

北京时政观察人士华颇:“网路对于中共来讲是一个大患,各种信息它用传统的手段已经控制不住了,像以前它可以控制传统的报纸、媒体广播电台和电视台那是中共一手筹办的,所以它控制信息、控制舆论驾轻就熟,但是网路兴起来之后,中共不可能一手遮天。”

当局今年1月份的数据显示,去年共有1万多家网站被查处,1万1千多人因网路言论遭抓捕。但这些并没有震慑住对当局不满的网民,近一段时间以来,涉 及中共权斗各种消息满天飞,如“郭伯雄出逃被抓”,“曾庆红被调查”,“宋祖英被抓捕”,“贾庆林在内蒙被控制”,以及众多贪官遭抓捕等等,而江泽民的丑闻更是密集爆发。

大陆自由撰稿人、独立调查记者黄金秋认为,都是因为政治体制不透明,黑箱操作,才导致网路上各种消息满天飞。

大陆自由撰稿人、独立调查记者黄金秋:“一般网民的猜测,他都是有一些根据,有一些蛛丝马迹,他才会有一些这种所谓的谣言。你现在所说的这些谣言最后可能都会变成真实的预言。”

事实上,自2012年2月初“王、薄事件”爆发后,有关中共高层分崩、内斗加剧的各种传言不断,之后也被一一验证。

香港《明报》指出,中共为争夺互联网话语权,推动由当局主导的新媒体发展,分别投入数亿元的巨资,成立了“前海传媒”和“澎湃新闻”两个网站,形成“一政一经”两个网上平台。上海还将为此推出两个新媒体项目。

华颇:“网路来讲,中共以往的控制手法已经失灵了,所以它必须找出一种新的方法来控制网路,钳制舆论, 所以它要加强控制,所以它还打算建立一个高规格的一个控制机构,可以协调各个部门的资源和力量来整治网路。”

为进一步震慑网路,23号,中共以“非法经营”及“寻衅滋事”罪名,重判了网路红人董如彬6年半,并罚款35万。

黄金秋指出,互联网时代,中共一味抓人、打压言论,抢夺话语权,最终大家宁可相信谣言,也不相信官方发布的信息。

Chines Communist Party Establish New Social Platforms
to Hit Online Rumors

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) have started a new round of
action to combat so-called online rumors.
There have been 47 websites shut down
and 39 internet users prosecuted.
The regime even spent hundreds of millions of yuan on setting
up two new platforms to compete for the rights to speak.
Commentators interpret this as the fragile and panicking
state of the regime.

The CCP are conducting the campaign to crackdown on internet
rumors by coordinating the State Internet Information Office,
Ministry of Industry and Information Technology,
and the Ministry of Public Security.
Since July 15, there have been three series of websites
shutdown for alleged mismanagement leading to
a spreading of ‘rumors’.

Four Websites such as Ganzhou Online and Chinese Generals
& Dignitaries Network were shut down.
43 Websites including Fence Net, Huilongguan Community, etc.
were closed for rectification.
Two others were suspended for improvement.

Earlier, two internet users were detained for spreading the
rumors about Shanghai air traffic control arresting
Guo Boxiong, 37 other netizens were punished and admonished
for dissemination of relevant information.

There were also a number of internet users
subject to education by work units.

Commentator Lin Zixu said, the messing around acts of the CCP
tells the vulnerability of the CCP towards the internet
and its free flow of information.

Lin Zixu: Chinese history has warned about
the crisis of persecuting free speech.
Especially in the era of the internet, further containment of
public opinion can only make people more abhorrent
towards the CCP.

The effect of suppression is only temporary.

Speech is human nature. The more suppression of speech,
the more people want to talk.
Even the internet police, I suspect, how many of them will
continue to serve the CCP after learning more about the
truths and facts.

Beijing politics watcher Hua Po also believes that
the CCP are panicking.
The so-called internet rumors crackdown shows its fear
of criticism, which might threaten the legitimacy
of its authoritarian rule.

Hua Po: the internet is a scourge for the CCP.
The conventional measures have lost their effectiveness
in controlling information.

They can single-handedly control the newspaper, radio
and television, but not the internet.

Data showed more than 10,000 websites have been prosecuted
and at least 11,000 internet users arrested last year.
But people were not overawed.

Recently, messages about CCP power struggle,
have been widely heard.
This includes the arrest of Guo Boxiong for fleeing,
Zeng Qinghong being investigated, Song Zuying being arrested,
Jia Qinglin being detained in the Inner Mongolia.

Additionally, amongst the many arrests of other corrupt
officials, there is also intensive exposure of
Jiang Zeming’s scandals.

Independent investigative reporter Huang Jinqiu indicates that
the widespread of massive messages on the internet
was caused by the opaque and black-box operation
of the political system under the CCP.

Huang Jinqiu: The speculation of general netizens
is based on clues.
Many of these speculations or so-called rumors could finally
become prophecies of true events.

In fact, since early February 2012 when Wang Lijun and Bo
Xilai’s incidents took place, many rumors had started
about the collapse and fighting within the CCP, which
later turned out to be real.

Hong Kong’s Ming Pao reported that two websites, at the cost
of several hundred million yuan, were invested in and led
by the CCP.

In order to compete for the right to speak on the internet,
Qianhai Media and The Paper were founded to control the social
platforms in finance and in politics.

Shanghai too will soon introduce two new platforms.

Hua Po: The CCP’s control tactics have failed in the internet.

It is seeking a new method to control the internet
and to suppress public opinion.
It needs a control mechanism of high specification
to coordinate resources and efforts of various departments
to best control the internet.

On the 23rd, in order to further deter internet usage, the
CCP charged Dong Rubin, a famous Chinese blogger,
for illegal operation and provocation.

Dong Rubin received a six and a half years imprisonment,
and a fine of $US 57,000.

Huang Jinqiu indicates that the arrest and suppression to
defeat the right to speak will only lead to people believing
in the rumors rather than the official releases.
