China: Chairman Hu's tear

Categories: East Asia, China, Arts & Culture, Freedom of Speech

ESWN blogs a Chairman Hu Jintao Cartoon [1]: “For Whom Did The Secretary General Shed His Tears?” which was published at Guangzhou's XKB (News Express) on September 12. A Hong Kong based newspapers Sing tao points out that in the western world (plus Hong Kong and Taiwan), leaders like Bush, Donald Tsang and Chen Shiu-bian are often presented in drawings. But in mainland China, it has been forbidden to do.

Bingfeng blogs another protrait on Chairman Jiang to give a contrast: “This is what we have before.” [2]
