Chinese media is lying to it's readers by telling only half of the truth:

Here is the original news:

Booster of Long-March-3III rocket falls

Booster of Long-March-3III rocket falls; 100,000 evacuated

Debris from the Long-March-3III rocket, which launched from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center, southwest China's Sichuan province Sunday, is discovered in Renhuai, southwest China's Guizhou province. The booster from the rocket fell to earth seven minutes after lift-off and forced authorities to evacuate more than 100,000 people. There was no report of any casualties.

And this is what I think about it:

Th issue here is, that the state controlled Chinese media do not tell the truth to the people.

The reason for evacuating 100.000 people are withheld.

The solid debris from the rocket booster came down within minutes. Saving the people for being hit by debris cannot be the
reason for the evacuation, since it can't be done within minutes.

The reason to evacuate "after" the incident must have another cause, which the Chinese media does not reveal to its readers.

We Chinese people have a right to full information granted in our constitution !

I have relatives in the area and by now I am unable to reach them by phone.

I do not know what really happened.

Since there is no response so far I conclude

- Chinese do not care for their fellow citizens

- Chinese take news for granted

- This is to hard to answer

No, surely not !

But a 100.000 people is even for Chinese circumstanceds a lot of displaced people..

Why they have been evacuated ?

What is the danger ?

What is the damage or the long term effect to the environment, the crops, the houses ?

When can they return to their homes ?

Questions over questions.

The state controlled news media just feed their reader with only 2 or 3 sentence  and leave the conclusion and the worry to them.

Investigative journalism ? Did any media team go to that area to do a report ?

No, this is not anything new.

But a good example of Chinese media reality.

Wonder why nobody bites the bait.

Maybe the hook is just to big to swallow?

Another provocative thread.

So many foreigners pretending to be Chinese nowadays.

Really boring.
