China Adds Sites to Porn Watch List

BEIJING -- China's anti-porn campaign continues to take new twists and turns, as even real-estate websites have been placed on a porn watch list.

The China Internet Illegal Information Reporting Centre named Sohu real-estate portal Focus.cn, Telstra's realty-investing site SouFun, Guangzhou-based online video site 56.com and Phoenix Satellite Television's ifeng.com to a new list of "offensive" websites containing "low-brow" content.

The government-backed CIIRC has cited  a total19 new websites for containing content that "perverts social morals and harms the physical and mental health of children," according to Pacific Epoch.
