Spreading porn in children publications punished

2013-09-15 07:38 Xinhua Web Editor: Sun Tian

Chinese authorities have seized several children's publications involved in spreading pornography, in a bid to filter obscene content in children's reading.

China Pictorial Publishing House and Shaanxi Normal University Publishing House were ordered to suspend their operation for three month, as a result of releasing children's books with porn content.

Boasting explicit phrases and branding ancient scholars as "rogues," the book "Those Who Don't Read It Upside-down Are Pigs" published by China Pictorial Publishing House is full of vulgar content with shoddy editing quality.

The State General Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television ordered the two publishing houses to take down the seized indecent books from shelves and destroy them.

Three other periodicals based in Shanxi, Henan and Shandong provinces were also ordered to suspend operation by provincial authorities for spreading superstition, violence, obscenity and erotic content.
