The Joys of Combatting Propaganda

The Associated Press: Foreign Media in China Harassed on Tibet
BEIJING (AP) — Western reporters in China have received harassing phone calls, e-mails and text messages, some with death threats, supposedly from ordinary Chinese complaining about alleged bias in coverage of recent anti-Chinese protests in Tibet.

The harassment began two weeks ago and was largely targeted at foreign television broadcasters, CNN in particular. But the campaign broadened in recent days after the mobile phone numbers and other contact information for reporters from The Associated Press, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today were posted on several Web sites, including a military affairs chat site.

“The Chinese people don’t welcome you American running dog. Your reports twist the facts and will suffer the curse of heaven,” said one e-mail received by the AP. One text message said: “One of these days I’m going to kill you.”

My guess is that this is probably some slave labor camp where people are given the choice to do this or be executed.  Yea, China, that’s what we think you do sometimes.
