The Daily Nugget is now banned in China!  Yes, it is a rite of passage for any reputable news organization to be banned in China, and now The Nug is too.  And it is just a crappy blog!  My friend Benson Tran, who lives in Beijing, says he can no longer access the site because the site, or me, angered a Chinese official.  Kick ass!


  1. Turns out that just by being a blog you are likely to get banned, but covering any pro-Tibet rallies or activities will too. So I guess my blog is guilty as charged on both counts.

  3. Yeah, I guess it’s only banned in Beijing. I take it that the country’s firewalls are regional or something. The site is definitely blocked from Beijing. Weird.
