Understanding China, One Blog at a Time

An American in China

Communist TV Network

I remember the first time I saw BON TV, it seemed odd, kind of coltish. Seemed like a show from the Amish or Mormons, really controlled and weird. It is actually a news show from China. Although it supposedly receives no money from the government, and thus tries to distance itself from the Communists, one knows better. In China, the government regularly imprison people for sketchy things like disrupting public order, divulging state secrets and such. Thus, for a company that controls a TV station it is easy to see how they would easily fall under this punishment umbrella.
This show will continue to expand and allow the communists and Chinese to spread the word about how great they are to the rest of us shortly. As for me, watching it seems painful and odd. i found it to be quite boring.
