Do you know where the Cook Is are? China Does

The following story is self explanatory. Draw your own conclusions.

"Signals carrying a television expose on how HIV/AIDS was spread in China by corrupt officials were abruptly cut mid-programme in the Cook Islands last night.

There was no answer to calls at Cook Islands Television."

Technical hitch?
