BBC Apologized to China for Infidelity of  Its Coverage Disclosed by a 16-year-old Chinese

The 16-year-old Chinese named Ma Huaqing, whose net name is Singapore Panda, is from Chendu, China and he is studying in Singapore now. He discovered the infidelity of BBC's coverage while browsing  the news in BBC's website. Under Ma's great effort, BBC had to make an apology.

Here's the BBC's apology with URL link available as below

Between times

Two weeks ago, during our coverage of the Olympic Torch relay protests in London, the BBC broadcast a report from Beijing, suggesting there had been no coverage of the protests, in China. Like much of the coverage associated with the recent trouble in Tibet, it has provoked a lot of discussion in China and on video sites like YouTube.

While James Reynolds's report (which you can watch here) was first broadcast on Sunday 6 April at 1900 BST, the items featured on YouTube were transmitted the following day - so the video is disingenuous. However, while it is true that at the time James's report was compiled no Chinese media had reported the protests, between the item being recorded and the report being broadcast, we now understand that some Chinese media did report the protests - although not the main channel, CCTV1, featured in James's report. It was wrong of us to suggest that the Chinese authorities tried to keep news of the protests off the air. When we make a mistake, we need to apologise. I'm happy to do so.

Jon Williams is the BBC's world news editor

LOL, now I consider BBC is even stupider than CNN, you'd think they would put some efforts to their outright lies.

They're a bunch pussies at top of that, what kind of a half-hearted apology is that?! I'd have some respect to them if they just refused to apologise, just come out say: "fk journalism ethics, I wont apologise because I dont think CCP is a legit government and I hate a country full of atheists..." I' d respect hators more than a bunch of hypocrites.

They Hate Us Because We Look So Much Like

They hate us because we look so much like what they WOULD like to be.

A country full of students of the arts.  30 million piano students.  10 million violin students.  In another generation the center of classical music is China.  

Art is flourishing like crazy.  Chinese modern art open up new art forms and styles, and are fetching top dollars even before the artists die - unusual in a Western art world where you usually have to wait for the guy to die before the art dealers will bid up the prices.

Universities that graduate 600,000 engineers a year, cranking out major engineering systems at 1/10th the cost in the West.

A nation full of entrepreneurs that out capitalist the best of them.

A country that already has the largest number of netizens and the the largest blogosphere (largest number of blogs anywhere in the world), AND the Chinese net users do not use the net mainly for porn as in the West.  

They hate us because China IS the future and the future is now.

They know that they were deliberately lying and spreading false propaganda and has been caught out!

Now they are engaged in a damage limitation exercise!
You will reap what you sow!
