CCTV News, You Better Believe It!

The communist mouthpiece, TV station CCTV, is called by Chinese 'the true dog of the communist regime'.

When Chinese are angry at some one lying, they will say: "You are just like CCTV!"

You may understand why from this screenshot from CCTV on 22nd Dec, 2010:

The Chinese characters in the TV screen: People welcome the rise in petrol prices.

The yellow character line is the title of the news item: 'All people in the country are very happy to welcome the rise in petrol prices.'

If you have doubts, here are the smiling faces of "All Chinese people" in the screenshot below.

Photo Of The Day

On 1 Jan 2014, Professor Fan Zongxin crawled on his hands and knees for a kilometre accompanied by his dog, with his wife filming him.

Why? On 1 Jan, 2013, when blogging on the web, Professor Fan predicted that during, Chinese officials who held positions at lower than provincial level, would open their affairs and income to public scrutiny. He promised that: : "If my prediction is not fulfilled, than I must be as stupid as a pig, I shall crawl for 1 km."

On 31st Dec. 2013, bloggers resurrected his post and reminded him of his promise. So he fulfilled his promise first thing on New Year's Day, which resulted in bleeding knees and palms.

Whilst he was crawling, people walking by and asked him what kind of Tai-chi or health training he was doing, Fan replied: "Straightening back bone for citizens."

Chinese bloggers applauded Professor Fan for keeping his word, and asked him if he would like to re-new his prediction and promise for this year. "NO, NO" he replied.
