奧巴馬訪華

讀Leona的”奧巴馬訪華的中美信息攻防戰/《中國猛博》”,我有感而發寫了些留言。在這裡將我的留言加幾個字和鏈接(links)作為一篇文章。

我真的佩服這些《中國猛博》的博客,寫博分分鐘為自己找麻煩。

因為這些都是網上可以讀到的博,您可以分享一些它們的鏈接嗎?我想有興趣的人會想讀讀他們的文章。

P.S. 錢鋼老師寫「最大的輸家,是在與奧巴馬對話現場端坐著的數百來自八所上海大學的年輕人」,可能寫重了手吧?

Yes, they are not some randomly selected students. Yes, they are heavily screened. Yes, there are reports they went through days (4 days?) of “training” to make sure they don’t do or say the “wrong” things”.

But as long as these students were not drugged, their ears are not plugged, and they understand English, then they had a chance to listen to Obama unfiltered. Not many Chinese can listen to the speech live. And not many Chinese could listen to the full speech.

Obama is not always right but he bought up a few interesting points for the Chinese students to think about. I watched Obama’s session (that same day from the Whitehouse website) and I think he delivered a reasonably good speech and a nice Q&A (note the online question re Chinese firewall selected by the US press).

錢鋼老師寫”最大的輸家”. As I argued above, may be that is a rather pessimistic view of things.

Of courses, if all of the “students” were actually undercover Chinese police on the job pretending to be “students”, then may be that session would have be a total waste of time. :)

Wow, this is looooong. I need to repost this in my blog. :)

From Apple Daily, Nov 17, 2009, “美總統訪華 奧巴馬促中國 尊重普世價值

“有與會青年在對話後不諱言,他們事先就這場對話接受了四天培訓,反映當局順應了美方要求舉行一場市政廳會議交流會之餘,其實只是「做騷」,仍然設法箝控大局,以防對話出軌。

除了做騷,奧巴馬講普世價值的演說和對話,當局沒讓中央電視台作全國直播,只讓新華網上直播。美國原本安排了數名青年公民代表參加交流會,也遭北京否決。

但奧巴馬演說一完,他的普世價值講話,即被內地網民廣泛轉貼。普世價值,中國人都想享有。”
