i dont know how many people have seen the PBS documentary 'china from the inside' being shown on kqed and other stations these days. it shows china in a wonderful light.
this is what the marxist government in west bengal needs to do: hire a british journalist to extol the virtues of how wonderfully marxism has helped the people.
brits are now increasingly on sale to the highest bidder and especially to the ruling castes to produce material that supports their view.
this is known in polite circles as journalistic prostitution. but this is the brits' core competency these days, in addition to managing the ill-gotten funds they stole from all over (including $10 trillion from india).
1. william dalrymple who hangs out in india and writes 'history' according to arjun singh, whereby everything mohammedan is exalted -- which accurately reflects the views of the ruling nehruvian caste.
2. the brit guy whose name escapes me who is the principal cheerleader for that chinese hoax about admiral zheng he and the 'history' being manufactured to claim chinese rights in the indian ocean and africa
3. this fellow jonathan lewis who made 'china from the inside', the 'authorized biography' if you will of china, showing all the negatives in soft-focus, cheerleading like mad, etc.
yes, sitaram, prakash and buddadeb, it's about time to call jonathan and give him a few million bucks to make a film about how wonderfully the fatherland of west bengal (and kerala) is progressing towards the socialist millennium under the benign eye of the great red fathers of alimuddin street in kolkata and the a k gopalan center in trivandrum.
can we say 'journalistic whore', boys and girls?
