China: Media lacking research

After reading a Chinese-language interview with Yale university's Office of Public Affairs, uleewang at Non-violent Resistance questions stories in Chinese media of a prominent Chinese and Yale-educated businessman who claims to have arranged Chinese president Hu Jintao's stop at Yale last month:

“Did they figure a senior official at a state-owned Chinese firm, and who had also worked at numerous respectable foreign and Chinese investment banks, wouldn't lie on such a matter of significant political implications? Or were they simply kissing up in exchange for a favorable tip-off on CNOOC‘s next big move? For the thousandth time, shame on them. “
