On 8 April, the anti-cnn.com website was hacked for unknown reasons. Anti-cnn is a Chinese university student-led website established on 21 March 08, with the stated goal of countering false Western media reports on Tibet:
This website is established to expose the lies and distortions in the western media. The site is maintained by volunteers, who are not associated with any government officials.
We are not against the western media, but against the lies and fabricated stories in the media.
We are not against the western people, but against the prejudice from the western society.
According to Hackbase.com, on 9 April, the founder of the organization was using the power of Sohu.com to seek assistance from technical experts following the hacker attack. The website has received 500,000+ hits and has over 40 moderators handling in excess of 6,000 posts and 5,000 replies daily.
You know, not five minutes ago I was saying I didn’t want to get involved in the politics of this thing…just five minutes ago.
