Hey. I can’t use Wall Street Journal in China. I heard that people need special tools to make it accessible. Which tool do you suggest? How do I use the tool to unblock it?
The Wall Street Journal is a comprehensive newspaper featured by financial reports, which focuses on financial and business report. It is the biggest paid financial newspaper in circulation in the United States which has wide international influence. This newspaper is published in Asia, Europe, and online. Its contents are sufficient enough to affect daily international economic activities. The Wall Street journal’s reporting style is serious. It is regarded as the in-depth reporting and its choice of subject matter is also very cautious. Its average cycle of a journalist’s topic selection is six weeks. The vast majority of newspaper articles are written and illustrated with few illustrations. The Wall Street Journal ranked third in the “best newspaper to America in the 21st century 21 voted by the Columbia Journalism Review in 1999 for its high quality and spirit. We can see that it is a great newspaper. However, not all users can access it online. It is blocked in China and other countries.
Wall Street Journal is one of the news websites whose Chinese version has been blocked in China. The main reason is to stop the foreign publishers to publish about China on their websites in their language. The Wall Street Journal reports events and news straightforward like controversial politic topic about China. The Chinese government believe that can cause chaos and riot among the people since the event in 2009. If the Chinese version is available, the ordinary people who believe and spread rumors easily can access the controversial contents all the time. That is bad for their unity. Therefore, if you find any news that has something offensive about the Chinese government that can provoke the people of China, the government will just block that news and its source. In this case, there are many online news websites and mobile applications that are not allowed to be accessed in the China. The Great Firewall of China has blocked it.
If you are a reader of the Wall Street Journal and want to get access to it on the Chinese mainland, then you will not be able to get it with the Chinese servers. You need extra help to get the access to the wall street journal in China. You can use the proxy sites that reside on the servers outside China. They can help you access the blocked sites, but they do not have powerful programming and will not let you get an exact view of the original site TOR browser. You also can use TOR Browser. It is a browser known for getting the blocked and the hidden internet information. However, it is very slow and not stable. So far, the most effective and secure way is to VPN. It helps in having the IP mapping that will only change the IP addresses of the requester and will let them access the Wall Street Journal by making the server believe that you are not located in China during the registration process. What is a VPN? VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. It creates an encrypted and secure connection between you and the website you are visiting. The VPN server plays the role of a middleman between you and the website that you are visiting. Given that the network traffic between you and websites is encrypted like a tunnel, the ISP will have no idea of your traffic emerges without signs of who you are or where you’re connecting from. The VPN server provides new IPs to replace your real IP. With the help of VPN, you will be able to access Wall street Journal any time when traveling in China.
