Winnie the Pooh is on the outs in China.  The "Financial Times" reports the popular children's story character is now blacked out of Chinese social media in the run-up to next fall's Chinese Communist Party Congress.  The international newspaper cites observers who say the crackdown might be over previous comparisons of President Xi Jinping and the cartoon bear.  

A "Times" tweet yesterday paired a picture of Winnie the Pooh walking with Tigger alongside a photo of Xi walking with former President Obama.  Dismally, there is yet no word on the fate of Eeyore.
