CHINESE MEDIA SEEING RED 

CHINESE MEDIA SEEING RED

Here s a little tidbit from our It just can t get much weirder department. The story was originally reported by Henry Chu of the Los Angeles Times. According to Chu, China s state-run Beijing Evening News quoted House minority leader Dick Gephardt as saying, If we want to stay competitive, [Congress needs] to upgrade [its facilities]. Look at the British Parliament. Look at the Vatican. Without modern facilities, they ve been having big problems attracting top talent. The article went on to say that Congress would consider moving its operations to either Charlotte or Memphis, depending on which city made the best offer. The BEN reporter had, it seems, lifted and reworked an article that appeared in the satirical tabloid The Onion on May 29th alongside a story declaring, Sexual Tension Between Arafat, Sharon Reaches Breaking Point.
