China: Wrong Chicken in the death penalty

Categories: East Asia, China, Law, Media & Journalism, Politics

Will comments that the death penalty of former head of the State Food and Drug Administration, Zheng Xiaoyu, is a killing of “wrong chicken” that may fail the purpose of scaring the monkeys: was Zheng's execution effective as public communication? This depends who the audience was. If the audience was other senior cadres, possibly, but with qualifications. If the audience was the public, I think not. [1]
