Communist China Version of Tibet History

Chinese TV propagandistic version of the story of Tibet since the 1959 uprising.



... And here a radically different view of things from a The (London) Times video editorial. [Thanks go to the great Rev. Danny Fisher for this viddy find.]

I suppose it's propagandistic, but the correct term for the government ruling Tibet is The People's Republic of China.

Anyhow, I thought I'd post on my blog some corrective, most of which doesn't come from China...

Yes. I guess I was skewing things [i.e., being propagandistic) by snarlingly calling it Communist China.

Tom...thanks...of course my blog went "blue" as they used to say when I started talking about censorship in China and mythical beasts...lately I've felt a bit iconoclastic, though I think there's a purpose behind all that...don't mean to be...it's just...all these constituencies aren't processing each others' data, if you know what I mean.
