Censorship rears its Commie head

After another tough transcribing session of Newsline, an apparent spat between the Communist overlords and officials at ATV (Asia Television) took place the following weekend. Apparently the latest episode of the venerable talk show regarding the chief executive election got replaced by another episode, because someone in the higher ups didn't like the fact that Allen Lee - member of National People's Congress and well-known political commentator - was on the show. The other was head of the Democratic Party's Albert Ho.
It even promopted a brief article in today's South China Morning Post, where our spokesperson gave a duly response of a 'techincal error'.
But now... it's going to be shown next week! Fucking idiots, all that resulted is now bad publicity.
