China blocks NYT Story on Leader's 'Hidden Fortune'

For some strange reason, the Chinese government isn’t really all that keen to publicize the fact that it’s very own Prime Minister has amassed a fortune of around $2.7 Billion dollars while serving in the position. The New York Times ran a report of Wen Jiabao’s family wealth, but the reporting site was immediately blocked.

A report from the newspaper yesterday detailed how relatives of Chinese prime minister Wen Jiabao have grown extraordinarily wealthy during his time in China's ruling elite.
