How Hollywood changes movies to avoid Chinese censorship
Earlier this month, Chinese censors banned South Park from streaming services and social media sites because of an episode called "Band in China," which poked fun at Hollywood's attempts to avoid Chinese censorship by self-censoring its own content.

Reuters reporter Lisa Richwine joined q's Tom Power live from Los Angeles to talk about the growing tension between Chinese censors and the way that North American entertainment is created for Chinese audiences.
