As the only female member of the previous Politburo, the state councilor in charge of the health, education and sports portfolios stands out. Despite Chairman Mao’s maxim that women hold up half the sky, women are a rare commodity in the upper ranks of the Party. Liu, aged 66, a rare princeling who is allied both with Hu and Jiang, might have shattered the Standing Committee’s glass ceiling. But as before, the men who rule China will remain just that.
your writing says a lot abut the credibility of Time overall....gj on writing something which you hardly understand....
This sounds like a piece that would be written as wartime American propaganda. How can you even call this journalism? Just a pile of biased steaming rubbish
I find some of your wording not to be as unbiased as i would like. Please consider that Chinese people read your comments and might find the adjectives used somewhat unsettling. I don't mean to be negative but to give a positive critical reminder that news should be unbiased.
@CaseyChenier Chinese people would definitely agree on your side!
As an old TIMEer, I can tell you it was never unbiased. It is more fun that way, especially with little Hannah turning it into a version of Washington TIMEs.
I guess i was reading this with the intent of being educated not entertained. Thanks for your reply. I am at work and maybe being too analytical.
it was an era of an scholar-bureaucrat by which indicates the man of great wisdom often appears slow-witted. Hu's personal pattern will eventually be marked by the huge changes of China in the past decade instead of journalists' buzzwords
I'm worried about Hollywood's current obsession with breaking into the Chinese film market with co-production money for Chinese language films. I feel this means deep down that Hollywood is funding Chinese propaganda.
