US Report Says Hollywood Adapts Films For Chinese Censors

Hollywood regularly changes its films—everything from dialogue to story line—in order to pass the Chinese censors. That’s according to a new report by the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, which monitors bilateral trade between the United States and China.
