New Book Exposes Chinese Leadership Hypocrisy

The Chinese Christian political commentator Yu Jie has released a new biography of the Chinese Premier in Hong Kong last week with the provocative title: 中国影帝:温家宝 (China's Best Actor: Wen Jiabao).  An English language translation will be forthcoming.

Yu draws on the example of the 2008 Sichuan earthquake. "Premier Wen was the first high-ranking official to show up and appeared very emotional," Yu, 37, told ABC News. "He offered his condolences to the local school parents and promised to investigate why and how the schools collapsed. "Two years later, however, he has still yet to issue any comforting reports to the Chinese public. No corrupt officials or developers associated with those officials were punished in any way."
