Sarah Cook, I will remember that name. That is a journalist. Solid research work with a historical perspective which usually young reporters lack, which is critical in identifying changes the way you detect earthquakes.....little insects scurrying out of the ground.

 

"According to media reports and to Chen Po kong, who hosts a political talk show for VOA,there were intense internal debates among staff about airing the show, reports of Chinese officials applying pressure to prevent it, and suspicion that a senior executive in the Mandarin service intervened to trigger the last-minute disruption. A VOA spokeswoman attributed the cut-off to miscommunication."

 

This bit tells me she is thorough. That 'senior executive in Mandarin dept' is the rat CCP planted in VOA. 80 min into a scheduled 3 hour interviw, just when the guy is about to spill Xi's dirt, his collaborated corruption with the head of the anti corruption force within CCP Wang, the interview is being cut off. You really have to be a grade school kid if you think it is an accident.

 

This rat is probably implanted more than a decade ago, with that level of authority. It must be an emergency situation because once exposed the next time it is more difficult, as the rat is being watched if not fired on the spot. 

 

Good article, great job. Flip the light switch on, expose the dark forces of CCP, that is one key to protecting yourself from these psycho warriors.

China recently blocked the showing of a Chinese animated film 'Have a Nice Day' in a French animated film festival in Annecy

'

Have A Nice Day, Chinese gangster animation, blocked in France'

 

The makers of a cutting-edge Chinese film that was pulled from the world's premier animation festival following government pressure from Beijing say they still hope the movie will get a run in cinemas at home later this year.

One of the organisers of the Annecy International Animated Film Festival in France, Patrick Eveno, told French newspaper La Croix, that Have A Nice Day had to be withdrawn because they "did not have the right to endanger the film's team".

The makers of the grungy, underworld, black comedy - called Hao Ji Le in Mandarin - reportedly lacked official clearance from Chinese officials to have their work shown internationally.

Producer Yang Cheng told the BBC that the piece was "about people's desire and fate".

He said that "the Chinese movie industry should be proud of it," adding "it has nothing to do with politics".

He confirmed that it was his team that had asked the Annecy festival organisers to pull the film.

 

Despite the pressure being brought to bear from Chinese government officials to stop the movie being shown in France, Yang Cheng said he was still optimistic that Chinese audiences would get to see it.

"We hope it will be shown in Chinese cinemas in the second half of this year," he said.

Recently the Chinese government has taken a harder line on the appearance of films overseas. It requires any work being shown in an international festival to gain approval from the authorities here.

An official from the Movie Bureau within the State Administration of Radio Film and Television (SARFT) told the BBC it would not comment on the matter. Calls to the administration's press office went unanswered.

 

Have A Nice Day was described in Variety as having a "witty animation style" and as a "gangster caper that literally follows the money".

The work, by Chinese director Liu Jian, is seen as being at the forefront of a new wave of arthouse animation coming out of China.

In one scene a hit man is sent to collect money owed to his boss or inflict an appropriately violent level of punishment.

However, as he pushes a meat cleaver on to the face of his younger target who hasn't paid back what he owes, the two get into a conversation.

The man with the cleaver cutting into his cheek says he always wanted to get a job like that of his assailant, but that his "balls are too small".

 

Within a short period of time they proceed to speak about girlfriends and plastic surgery; the pressure to get married in China; and loyalty to one's parents.

The dark, funny treatment of these subjects would ring true for a Chinese audience.

An official statement from the Annecy festival organisers said that the decision to withdraw Have A Nice Day had been "imposed upon us".

It goes on: "We're disappointed about the official pressures that have prevented us from presenting this remarkable film this year and we hope that international audiences will soon have the possibility to see it".'

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
