‘Outside of orders’, there is no evidence either way and as such, this is still speculation. The silence does not help China’s cause in a matter such as this.

“The very worse foes of China", I was referring to the T.ib government in exile and the clan of US NED funded organizations that jumped in on the matter.

Thanks for that post.

The western media is part of the so called "Elite Theory" model and it could not survive without their graces.

A war correspondent who writes in a negative manner would seriously affect moral of the home country.

The Vietnam War did not see this until the late 60's when there was growing pressure to leave Vietnam.

Yet initially, the media was the lapdog of the military and still is.

Yes, I love some of those old sitcoms and was watching Faulty Towers the other day.

Very little of it would get past a censor today.

The Old Major. "She said, 'Do you like watching the wogs play cricket'?
"I said, they are not wogs...........they are niggers"

But the modern TV shows have become a cesspit of foul language.

QUOTE: "It seems to me it irks you that it hasn't. Why?"

Again you make supposition of something.


Both cases were murder.
Unless, the Brazilian guy decided to shoot himself eight times.

The way they were handled after the fact is what makes them different.

QUOTE: "It is because the murderer gets shielded by the media, the authorities and even by individuals such as you (I presume)."

Can’t resist in making it personal, can you. I have never been known for my patience but I am trying.  


In the case of the Brazilian the murderers were shielded by their government and found not guilty.

The financially challenged family were paid off and that was the end of it.

China could learn a lot from this process.
