China cuts CNN’s feed as David McKenzie tells Anderson Cooper about being roughed-up while covering Beijing trial

A Chinese activist who leads a campaign to expose government corruption went on trial today in Beijing. CNN’s David McKenzie was there to cover the high-profile case. Chinese officials intent on keeping the media away roughed him up, and it was captured on video. David spoke with Anderson last night  but that interview wasn’t seen in China; censors cut CNN’s feed when the segment aired on AC360°.
