Media control is the number one reason China is more succesful than other governments.
In the west we already know that media control is a necessity for governments to win elections and successfully govern.
Tony Blair for example knew he needed the Murdoch press on side and gave his Communications Director Alistair Campbell more power than most of his cabinet.
The next most succesful politician in the UK was David Cameron. His previous Job? PR Guy.
Let’s look at more recent success - Donald Trump. TV celebrity turned Twitter power user who leveraged up and coming right wing press and new media to demolish his opponents. And who was anointed his de facto number two immediately after the win. Why of course Steve Bannon right wing website owner.
