China urges cartoon producers to resist 'unhealthy' content




SHANGHAI (Reuters) – China’s broadcasting regulator said it will encourage online producers to create “healthy” cartoons and clamp down violent, vulgar or pornographic content, as Beijing steps up efforts to bring its thriving entertainment industry to heel.
