Severe Punishment And Self-Criticism For Miswriting Xi Jinping’s Name

Xi Jinping misspelling

Notice: if you misprint Xi Jinping’s name in a newspaper or magazine, the full hammer of official censure will fall upon your head.

China Digital Times has this from its ongoing Censorship Vault series, via Reports Without Borders:

Xiamen Municipal Party Committee Propaganda Department: The West Strait Morning Post miswrote Xi Jinping’s name. Promptly pull all current papers from the shelves. Editors involved [in this mistake] must be severely published and undergo self-criticism. (June 27, 2013)

Copyeditors: go into your office and ask for a raise, pronto.

      The entity that needs the biggest steady dosage for “self criticism” is the CPC itself, instead of them pointing their grimy fingers at everyone else for mostly imaginary transgressions.
