Beijing - The executive vice president of the Beijing organizing committee and Games spokesman on Friday criticized the media for negative reporting. Wang Wei told a press briefing that there was a bias from some of the journalists.

He was reacting to negative questions directed at the organizing committee by journalists on human rights issues, internet censorship, pollution and the situation in Tibet.

"So many criticisms in this room just reflect how biased some of the media are about China, how little some of the media understand China."

He compared it with the reporting about the torch relay outside China, which focussed on demonstrations about the situation in Tibet, where Chinese officials had brutally clamped down on protests.

"History will show how correct the decision of the IOC was in 2001 in awarding the games to China."

Wang's statements came just a few hours after security officials detained two photographers from an international news agency and accused them of being part of a demonstration.
"Justice prevails... evil justice."

The low lives and gutter feeders .

It is high time that the Chinese hosts point out the very few trouble makers , who are all from the same handful of gutter press media , as what they are .  They are here to cause embarrassment  and anxiety for the host . They know full well that this is the Olympics , not the UN .  These feral journalists have really no interest in the wellbeing or welfare of the " oppressed " .They have often sneaked into those areas , do a scoop , and then leave these people to there " fate " . These gutter dwellers do not care if these informants are bundled off to executions or not ( according to the low lives ) , they just want to sell their stories .

The Chinese have been more than patient with these pesky pests . The fact that they are allowed to still wonder around Beijing is testament to the freedom and tolerance of the Chinese government . It is like dealing with children with ADHD , or autism .  Very hard .

Reality check :

Just because the Olympics are going on, it´s not a reason to shut up about more important things in life.

Maybe it´s inconvenient for the hosts but that´s just how it goes.

Such As?

80 heads of state/high govt. officials deem it important enough to set down whatever affairs of state to come celebrate at China's party.  That is how important it is.

The only way to improve things is to talk about them openly and not stop just because it causes anxiety to politicians. Without transparency problems usually do not get fixed.

Just because they say it´s important, doesnt make it so.

Journalists have a duty to report at all times. Not only when it´s convenient for those who are responsible for running things.

icke,

Ever heard of  " time and place " ?  These concerted juvenile pranks have nothing to do with human rights , just an excuse to " sock it to the Chinese " .  These same journalists have never been interested in HR of any sort ever , before the Beijing Olympics , and I dare say , after . These are congenital cretins who are under achievers trying to grab a headline , however they can .  They are to be pitied rather than condemned I suppose .

Some of the journalists are obviously looking for scandals at all costs but that´s just the way it works over here.

It´s not about "sticking it to the Chinese", European politicians and their policies are under constant attack every day of the year as well.
