Chinese People's Daily on Misinformation through Internet
Beijing, February 14 (KCNA) -- The Chinese People's Daily described misinformation spread through Internet as "evil virus".

In a commentary on January 30, the newspaper said such misinformation is aimed to disturb public sentiments under the disguise of the "people's opinion".

The "virus" badly affects the psychology of Internet users, impeding the sound development of Internet, the commentary said.

In recent years China has applied strict regulations to managing and using Internet, while prohibiting websites inciting people to national division or cults and spreading erotic and violence information.

Through a campaign to filter vulgar websites, it closed about 2,500 x-rate websites in the period from June to October last year.

It is viewed as a just measure for the interest of the people and the stability and harmonious development of the society.
