Hong Kong: Bus Uncle and Chief Executive

The Bus Uncle video (a video taken on a mobile phone of a young man and older man arguing on the top of a bus) has spread from the internet BBS and blogsphere to the mainstream media. ESWN has a full collection of all the internet products related to the video clip; then the mainstream media found out that Bus Uncle is the candidate of 1997, 2002, 2005 SAR Chief Executive, and he will probably run for next year election too! ESWN has the translation of Bus Uncle interview.

Meanwhile, there are some discussion concerning the ethical issue bought up by the new media, Jacky's blog said that the case can provide real life material for general education; Bo-blog discussed the implications of Bus Uncle for the 4th media.
