Global Times is back with another reader contest, “What are your misconceptions?” Those who answer that question as it relates to China – with either short essay (150-250 words), photo, video, etc. (“the possibilities are endless!” Endless?) — can win a stay at the Grand Millennium Beijing. So, Global Times, mind if we get an example?
Reader Andy Li says:
“I’m surprised no one has touched upon the most pernicious lies spread by American propaganda (China committing “genocide” in Tibet or Xinjiang, China doing nothing but stealing/hacking the US’s tech, China’s government being super corrupt, and some other awful racist stereotypes) “
However… maybe not glorious enough. The winners will apparently be chosen by public vote. Is this amazing competition actually a popularity contest in which someone could write something akin to the opposite of Andy Li’s answer (maybe: “Pandas, contrary to popular misconception, taste more like beef than chicken”) and still win?
We’re not sure we want to find out. But if you do, here’s how to enter:
