Those wily Chinese always seem to be one step ahead of us lately. Even in implementing the Fairness Doctrine.
A protestor recently tossed a shoe at Chinese premier Wen – in imitation of the Iraqi reporter who hurled a shoe at President Bush – during his speech in England.
Chinese state-run newspapers and websites reported on Wen’s speech but ignored the shoe-throwing. Independent websites that mention the incident appear to have been censored. The official Xinhua News Agency reported that Britain apologized for an incident but never mentioned what what it was apologizing for.
Consider this a preview of American radio after politicians implement the Fairness Doctrine and begin their own favored programming.
