Even in death, the Chinese government still censors activist Liu Xiaobo

Domestic media outlets, all controlled by the ruling Communist Party, mostly have ignored the news.

A few English-language outlets carried short reports on Liu's death, highlighting his "criminal" background and Chinese doctors' effort to save him.
