China's Tight Grip On Ship Disaster Info Draws Criticism
Both the media and victim's families are criticizing the lack of information surrounding the Chinese cruise ship disaster.By Ben Lawson | June 4, 2015
Workers in China began trying to turn over the recently capsized cruise ship Thursday as authorities pledged a transparent investigation into the incident that left dozens dead and hundreds missing.
And there will likely be a lot of focus on just how "transparent" that investigation is. Relatives of some of the victims have already protested over an alleged lack of information coming from authorities.
Accusations emerged that the government is trying to censor independent media outlets in an effort to keep the tragedy quiet.
