China Daily Oddities

Since the Great Internet Meltdown, I have increasingly relied on China Daily for news. This is not good. The newspaper, like all Chinese newspapers, is controlled by the government and is little more than a propaganda exercise. I never normally read it. The online version is only slightly better. It should also be noted that the English language version and the Chinese versions are very different.

Two things have surprised me this week. First is this cartoon which seems remarkably honest coming from China Daily!


Then, I am intrigued that they chose a picture of this particular man to illustrate an article on flatulence.


We live in interesting times!
