Western medias are the evils

Western medias are the evils. China is going to change its leaders on November 2012. At this critical moment, there is some western media tried to stir up China political scene. When we study the recent history, we will know western media or its political leaders always like to interfere and stir up and try to create chaos in China. No wonder China dioplomat saying these western media has the ulterior motive. Western media or intelligence agents always want to belittle China. We still can remember opium war, colonized Hong Kong for 100 years, eight countries combined to attack China, greedy pig Japan attacked China between year 1937 to year 1945. Even now, these western media still has the evil mindset, always like to mind others business. Western medias are the evils, they spread rumor and always has the agressive mindset and thinking themselves great, what the foolish western media.   BEIJING: China's censors did their best Saturday to block discussion of a New York Times investigation into Premier Wen Jiabao, but analysts said the report would still likely reach tens of millions of people.

Detailing a string of deals on Friday, the newspaper said that relatives of the government's number two -- a self-styled man of the people known popularly as "Grandpa Wen" -- had become "extraordinarily wealthy" during his tenure.

Investments by Wen's son, wife and others spanning the banking, jewellery and telecom sectors were worth at least US$2.7 billion according to an analysis of company and regulatory filings from 1992-2012.

State-run newspapers made no mention of the scandal on Saturday, while China's army of censors ensured that searches for The New York Times or other related terms returned no results on social networks and search engines.

The English-language and Chinese websites of the American newspaper were also blocked in China and reports on international television channels CNN and BBC World were blacked out.

"Only a small proportion will be aware of the story," seasoned China watcher Willy Lam told AFP.

He estimated that about 10 per cent of China's 500-million-strong online population would still manage to evade the censors, however, amounting to about 50 million people.

"The NYT story will hurt Wen Jiabao... his reputation will be adversely affected," he explained, adding that many Chinese had become very cynical about the wealth accumulated by those near the centres of power.

"Most Chinese just assume that the top leaders are corrupt," he said.

The revelations come as a particular embarrassment for Wen, who is the standard-bearer of the Communist Party's reformist wing and has campaigned against corruption.

In a speech published in April, he said official corruption was "the biggest danger facing the ruling party" and warned that "those who hold political power may perish" unless it is addressed.

The NYT report coincided with the announcement that former regional Communist Party boss Bo Xilai had been stripped of his parliamentary seat ahead of an expected trial, which was meant to signal a new get-tough approach on graft.

Bo's expulsion from the National People's Congress came after state media announced last month that he would "face justice" for alleged abuse of power, taking bribes and improper sexual relations.

The NYT investigation darkens the clouds hanging over the Communist Party caused by the Bo scandal as the regime prepares to name successors to Wen and President Hu Jintao in a once-in-a-decade leadership change starting November 8.

The New York Times said in a blogpost that the investigation into Wen had taken a year and that the newspaper knew of the likely impact on its business prospects in China.

It invested in a Chinese-language version of its website only recently and will lose out on advertising revenue if it remains unavailable to the public.

"I'm very proud of this work," New York Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger was quoted as saying in the post. "Our business is to publish great journalism. Does this have a business impact? Of course."

In June, business news agency Bloomberg published an investigation into the finances of Vice President Xi Jinping, who is expected to be promoted to president at a Communist Party congress next month.

Bloomberg's website is still blocked and Chinese banks were encouraged to stop using financial data provided by the US company.

Beijing on Friday dismissed the NYT report as an attempt to tarnish China, with foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei telling reporters in response to a question on the article: "Some reports smear China and have ulterior motives."

Let's see how China premier's family react to the evil rumor by western media socall cunning fox media.  
HONG KONG - Two lawyers who said they represented the family of Prime Minister Wen Jiabao of China have issued a statement disputing aspects of a New York Times (NYT) article about the family's wealth, a rare instance of a powerful Chinese political family responding directly to a foreign media report.

The statement, published in the South China Morning Post yesterday, said: "The so-called 'hidden riches' of Wen Jiabao's family members in The New York Times' report" did not exist.

After criticising several points in the article, the statement hinted at the possibility of future legal action.

"We will continue to make clarifications regarding untrue reports by The New York Times, and reserve the right to hold it legally responsible," the statement said.

The statement was not a sweeping denial of the article. The statement acknowledged that some family members were active in business and that they "are responsible for all their own business activities".

While the statement disputed that Mr Wen's mother had held assets, it did not address the calculation in the article that the family had controlled assets worth at least US$2.7 billion (S$3.3 billion).

Ms Eileen Murphy, a spokeswoman for NYT, expressed confidence in the article. "We are standing by our story, which we are incredibly proud of and which is an example of the quality investigative journalism The Times is known for," she wrote in an e-mail.

The lawyers' statement represents an unusual move for the family of a senior Chinese leader.

When Bloomberg News published an article in late June describing real estate and other assets held by the family of Vice-President Xi Jinping, his family did not respond to the report publicly.

The statement published in The Post was attributed to Mr Bai Tao, Partner in the Beijing office of the Jun He Law Firm, and Mr Wang Weidong, Managing Partner of the Beijing office of the Grandall Law Firm.

It denied an anecdote in the NYT article that described how one investment in the name of Mr Wen's mother, Ms Yang Zhiyun, was worth US$120 million in 2007. "The mother of Wen Jiabao, except receiving salary/pension according to the regulation, has never had any income or property," the statement said.

Corporate registration records reviewed by NYT showed that the shares in Ping An, an insurance company, were held through investment vehicles. A signature bearing Ms Yang's name and identity card were included in the registration record, which was obtained from government regulatory filings.

The family's statement also said that "Wen Jiabao has never played any role in the business activities of his family members, still less has he allowed his family members' business activities to have any influence on his formulation and execution of policies". The New York Times.
Now the picture is very clear, this evil cunning fox media will continue to smear China out of ill-will. Remember freedom not means you can anyhow spread the rumor to achieve you own agenda.
