Xinhua’s double standard

Xinhua has an article about some Chinese people’s concern that the animated movie “Kung Fu Panda” is out to “kidnap the minds” of Chinese people:

American “panda” movie stirs controversy among Chinese moviegoers.

They also have an article extolling how lovely all the modernization is they’re doing for Tibet:

Tibetan enjoy new lifestyle

It’s almost humorous to read one article on the damage that a silly cartoon movie can do to Chinese children and respect for their native culture, and then see another one completely whitewashing the cultural and physical violence the Chinese have inflicted on the Tibetan people. Oh, but a few of them have iPhones now, so that makes it all better.
