"it appears that when it comes to online journalism in China, the jails are mainly reserved for people who not only speak critically of the government online, but who also are doing so in concert with overseas dissident groups that have some organization and resources behind them and which are linked in some way to an interest in political action"

I agree with you. Their biggest worry is people who organize politically, and activists funded by overseas groups.


I think your observations are quite accurate. It isn't opinions that get people jailed, but rather concerted action to challenge the government. The religious group that shall not be named faced only governmental criticism until they protested, and actually shut down Zhongnanhai. From that point on, it was banned.
