The Chinese don't have much of a problem with Fake News on Weibo

I don't know about that, to use the nail analogy, 'they merely have more hammers'.

They'll be on newspeak soon, if not already. They've already had to ban 'Winnie the Pooh' references as the population uses it's imagination to get round bans on topics of discussion.

There'll not be that many words soon, but on the other hand the population are getting it's imagination and creativity honed sharper and sharper.
