Searching for Falung Gong (http://www.google.com/trends?q=%E6%B3%95%E8%BD%AE%E5%8A%9F&hl=zh-cn) reveals which politbureau member hasn't done his job properly.

You might want to check for changes in personell in the following regions:

Tianjin, China
天津, 中国

2. Guiyang, China

3. Shijiazhuang, China

On a sidenote, the news sources showing to the right side of Google Trends China are likely censored as well – Google chose not to include news source in China which the Chinese gov't deems harmful/ blockworthy:

I don't think that the news sources are flitered/cencored.

In the above link, I searched for the term "六四" ([The] June 4th [Incident]), and the news items returned were from Epoch Times (A news agency in close relation with Falun Gong), The Voice of America, and other news sources which are (I presume) censored by the PRC Government.
