Taiwan-related observation, January 25, 2009

Did anybody else notice?

At approximately 5:00 PM today on FTV (民視新聞), a reporter who was telling viewers about what former president Chen Shui-bian (陳水扁) was eating today (Is this "news"?) was wearing a cap bearing the logo for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Can you say "WTF?!"?

What came to mind right away was the September 16, 2006 incident in which an FTV cameraman got into a scuffle with the crowd at a rally to support Chen Shui-bian. The reason for the scuffle was that the cameraman had a "Depose [Chen]" (倒扁) sticker on his camera and was wearing a red jacket (the color worn by the anti-Chen demonstrators [紅衫軍] led by Shih Ming-teh [施明德]).

Are you paying attention?
