Democratic elections and free media might be far away for China, but the internet is increasingly taking up some functions in allowing people to tell the government what they want, says media watcher and Danwei-owner Jeremy Goldkorn in Times Online. 
Jeremy Goldkorn, founder of danwei – a website focusing on the media in China, said: “The Internet is the closest China has to a fourth estate. It’s the only platform citizens have for airing grievances. It is increasingly going to play a part in monitoring corruption and government malfeasance.”
