CMP: Chinese Cartoonist Sees 29th Internet-Access Suspension


There's not much to the actual story of cartoonist Kuang Biao having another account suspended by -- one has to believe -- Chinese authorities, but it's a story worth tracking if only that the cartoonist has gotten back on 28 times after being booted. You gotta root for someone like that, as well as more generally the idea of a cartoonist having basic access to potential readers. Biao is probably best known for a 2010 cartoon in support of a fellow journalist, which led to a formal reprimand and fine.
