Global Times Chief Editor Hu Xijin Makes List Of “10 Most Horrid People Of 2012,” TAR Nation Rejoices
Despite censorship, the Chinese Internet is still capable of producing gem. On Sina Weibo, an Anhui-based user, @每周评论 wrote a short-lived post that identified the “10 Most Horrid People of 2012.” Hong Kong-based China Media Project tells us the post was deleted “sometime before 12:05 p.m. yesterday,” but not before they were to extract and translate the list. Coming at No. 1: Sima Nan. But it’s No. 9 — Global Times editor-in-chief Hu Xijin — who has at least one of us cackling with joy.
“That made my day,” said TAR Nation. If you agree with him, you might enjoy:
