A tipster tells us (and Twitter confirms) that Bloomberg's website has been blocked in China thanks to their publication this morning of this lengthy investigative story detailing the wealth of various relatives of Xi Jinping (pictured, with Hank Paulson), the man likely to be China's next president.
Our tipster says Bloomberg.com was blocked there last night, in a preemptive move to prevent Chinese nationals from reading the story. We hear that China has threatened Bloomberg's business license before, due to opinion pieces that the government disliked.
