Favoured by the emergence of social media and the lack of credibility of official information, false news and rumours proliferate in China. This article explains how these phenomena occur in a country led by a power that censors information, it presents their messengers and exposes the reasons why the public considers false news and rumours as potentially true. Finally, it analyses the authorities’ repressive response to the challenge faced by the official communication, in the centre of which lies the credibility of the information accessible to the Chinese people.
