Government lies used to conceal visit by North Korea’s “Dear Leader”

first_img Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes Reporters Without Borders voiced outrage today at the news blackout imposed by the Chinese authorities on a visit by North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il, which no Chinese news media has mentioned. One official after another at every level has repeatedly denied that any such visit is taking place.“This is not so much a lack of transparency as an orchestrated state lie to protect the planet’s worst dictator,” the press freedom organisation said. “Are the Chinese authorities ashamed of their troublesome ally.”Kim arrived in China in his armoured train on 10 January. Today (13 January) he is said to be in southern China visiting the city of Shenzhen, the symbol of Chinese capitalism. The Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post reported that Kim stayed in the White Swan Hotel in Guangzhou. All other visitors were asked to leave the hotel, which – according to the receptionists – was full.There are many accounts confirming the visit, despite the denials by Chinese and North Korean diplomats. A Japanese commercial TV station today broadcast footage shot clandestinely that showed Kim outside a luxury hotel in Guangzhou. Agence France-Presse reporters meanwhile confirmed the existence of extraordinary security measures around the hotel. A North Korean diplomat told the Russian news agency Interfax that, “none of our government figures is currently in China.” At a press briefing yesterday, the Chinese foreign ministry spokesman said: “I know that you are all very interested in knowing (where Kim is) but for the time being I have nothing. Each country has its own way of giving out information.”For “security” reasons, the Chinese government usually does not announce a visit by Kim until he has already returned home. The North Korean media never mention visits by the “Dear Leader” until the day afterwards. ChinaAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders is outraged by the news blackout on North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il’s visit to China, which began on 10 January. Both the Chinese and North Korean governments have denied the visit is taking place, although a Japanese commercial TV station today broadcast footage of Kim outside his hotel in Guangzhou. Other foreign media have confirmed Kim’s presence in China.

Tix Now Available for Diane Lane’s Return to Broadway

first_img Related Shows The Cherry Orchard Diane Lane(Photo: Greg Gorman) Diane Lane, who made her Broadway debut as a child in the 1977 revival of The Cherry Orchard, starring Meryl Streep, is returning to the Anton Chekhov classic and tickets are now on sale for the event. Directed by Simon Godwin, the Oscar nominee will headline the new Great White Way adaptation of the play by Tony winner Stephen Karam (The Humans). The limited engagement is scheduled to begin previews on September 15 and officially open on October 16 at Roundabout’s American Airlines Theatre.First produced in Moscow in 1904, The Cherry Orchard is Chekhov’s masterpiece about a family on the edge of ruin—and a country on the brink of revolution. The story of Lyubov Ranevskaya (Lane) and her family’s return to their fabled orchard to forestall its foreclosure, the play captures a people—and a world—in transition, and presents us with a picture of humanity in all its glorious folly. By turns tragic and funny, The Cherry Orchard still stands as one of the great plays of the modern era.Further casting will be announced later.

Syracuse basketball legend Pearl Washington dies at 52

first_imgHe was drafted with the 13th pick of the NBA Draft’s first round following his junior season at SU in 1986 by the then-New Jersey Nets. Washington also played for the Miami Heat and only stuck in the league until 1989.Shortly after announcing Washington’s death, SU Athletics released the following video commemorating his life. Related Stories Online fundraiser benefits former SU basketball star Pearl Washington Former Syracuse basketball legend Pearl Washington has died, SU Athletics announced Wednesday morning. Washington, who played at Syracuse from 1983-1986, had been battling a malignant brain tumor.Syracuse.com initially reported Washington’s struggle with the brain tumor at the end of August. A Gofundme page was started Jan. 20 for Washington by Brandon Steiner, a Syracuse graduate and memorabilia mogul. The page has raised $63,430 as of about 10 a.m. Wednesday morning. A vigil was held in September at Hendricks Chapel, where the now-late Father Linus DeSantis said Washington’s condition had been improving.T-shirts had also been sold with “Pearl” scrawled on the front and SU players wore shirts on the bench and during warm-ups throughout this past basketball season. Facebook Twitter Google+ SU head coach Jim Boeheim recruited Washington from Brownsville, New York. Before he got to Syracuse, Washington was well known for his exploits on the blacktop playground courts in New York City. Tim Hardaway, who is credited for his handle, emulated Washington’s crossover, he said in a video for the New York Times.“First off I’d like to start out by saying how much I appreciate all the support for Dwayne Washington, Pearl,” Boeheim said on Jan. 30. “I think the overwhelming support that has been coming forth from everybody is tremendous. There’s no better guy and there’s nobody who has meant more to our basketball program than Dwayne Washington so I appreciate all that has been done for him and the thoughts people have come forth with. It means a lot to me. It means a lot to him.”Washington’s signature moment at Syracuse is still played on the video board before basketball games, when he hit a game-winning, half-court buzzer beater against Boston College Jan. 21, 1984. After the shot, Washington famously kept running, right into the locker room tunnel as the student section stormed the court.center_img Comments AdvertisementThis is placeholder textJessica Sheldon | Staff Photographer Published on April 20, 2016 at 9:50 am Contact Chris: [email protected] | @ChrisLibonatilast_img read more
