Crazy Far Loon woman
However, this is 2006, and geeks are large and in charge: somebody has uploaded the CNN coverage of heckled Hu to Youtube, here: Hu heckled.
CCTV was apparently broadcasting Hu's speech live: were any Danwei readers watching? What did they broadcast during the heckle? Please tell us in the comments if you were watching CCTV at the time.
Hong Kong's "most obnoxious expatriate" Hemlock had this to say about the heckling incident:
Why did the US Government give press accreditation to the Epoch Times, let alone Dr Wenyi Wang [the heckler], to attend President Hu Jintao’s speech yesterday on the White House lawn?
Hemlock is hosted on Geocities, which is blocked in mainland China. Click on this link if you are within the clammy embrace of the Nanny. If your online life is unaffected by the Nanny, click here. There is more about the affair on ESWN: The Wang Wenyi Photos.
There is more on Chinese reactions to the Hu visit on Imagethief, who appears to have had a day or two of blogging hyperactivity: Q: What do my Chinese colleagues think of Bush + Hu?. And Shanghainese blogger Bingfeng is Disappointed with GW's welcome speech .
UPDATE: The comments are closed on this post. Blame it on a lunatic troll whose ravings have been deleted. See, Danwei can excercize self-discipline. Long live the Eight Honors! Down with the Eight Shames!
