Xinhua Says Graft "Rampant," Baidu Bans Forums on "Corrupt Officials"

On October 18, 2011, the State-run news agency Xinhua published a report entitled "China Fights Rampant Graft in Infrastructure Projects." The report said that in the first eight months of 2011, about 6,800 officials have been prosecuted for corruption in infrastructure projects across the country.

The screenshot shows that a Baidu user searching Baidu's Tieba forums for "corrupt officials" (贪官) is told:

"Apologies, in accordance with relevant laws, regulations, and policies, this forum cannot be opened." (抱歉,根据相关法律法规和政策,本吧暂不开放。)

Usual caveat - I don't know how long Baidu has banned forums on corrupt officials.
