Chinese bloggers often go missing

CPJ's ranking is helpful in that it makes the world pay attention to countries that censor the Internet. I do not know much about other countries, but I know about China. I believe that the outside world (as well as people within China) cannot actually know how many people are jailed because of Internet speech. The successful cover-up of this information makes China's rank lower than it should be, but coming in at number eight regardless indicates how bad the situation is.
