Google and CCTV

Google in China is cooperating with CCTV for a new microsite to vote on Chinese cities, as part of Google’s “Rebang” website.
What’s CCTV? Let’s consult Wikipedia:

China Central Television ... is the major broadcast television network in Mainland China. Organizationally, it is a sub-ministry of People’s Republic of China’s central government within the State Administration of Radio, Television, and Film and as such it does not have any editorial independence from the PRC government.

Wikipedia adds that CCTV’ “news reporting follows parameters directed by the Propaganda Department of the Communist Party of China” but that it mostly shows “Chinese soap operas.”

[Thanks Xujie!]
