Sina and Tencent Stop Censoring "Bo Xilai" the Same Day Government Announces His Indictment

On July 25, 2013, the China's official news agency Xinhua published an article entitled "Bo Xilai Indicted for Bribery, Corruption and Power Abuse."

These screenshots show that on July 24, both Sina and Tencent were censoring searches for "Bo Xilai" (薄熙来) on their Weibo products, and that on July 25 both companies stopped censoring searches for that term.

This screenshot shows that on July 25 Baidu was still prohibiting users from establishing a PostBar (貼吧 Tieba) forum about "Bo Xilai."
