"The Chinese government's surveillance of undesirables isn't limited to its
borders. It has been working with tech companies to produce an
outsider-oriented surveillance platform to keep tabs on visiting students and
foreign journalists -- neither of whom might feel particularly obliged to
maintain the party line.

The journalist-targeting surveillance system, detailed in a December 2021 Yahoo
report, is apparently already mostly a reality. This New York Times report
shows the government is already applying its oppression to visitors to the
country, hoping to ensure nothing contradicting the official narrative makes
its way to the internet airwaves."
