Since Xi Jinping took over the role of General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party in 2012 there has been a tightening of social, political, and economic controls in China, alongside a renewed emphasis on CCP ideology. But to what extent are Xi’s measures a continuance of policies established by his predecessors Jiang Zemin (1989-2002) and Hu Jintao (2002-2012)? Do they reflect a new direction for CCP media management and social and political control? What is the agenda behind these changes and what do they tell us about the CCP’s hold on power? This paper analyses trends in media control during the Jiang and Hu eras and then examines to what extent Xi’s initiatives are a new direction for the CCP government.
