LinkedIn hid publication section of Axios journalist who covers issues related to China: LinkedIn notified Axios China reporter Roie Yellinek that the publication section of his LinkedIn page would not be accessible in China. According to screenshots, the platform allegedly sent him an email saying telling him: "we [LinkedIn] believe it's important to inform you that due to the presence of prohibited content located in the Publication section of your LinkedIn profile, your profile and your public activity, such as your comments and items you share with your network, will not be made viewable in China." It is unclear which listed publication might have sparked the reaction from LinkedIn, however Yellinek specializes in research on "Chinese Soft-Power in the Middle East," according to his LinkedIn profile.
