With China trying to stop Google from helping internet users find pornography, it appears that China has picked up its propaganda campaign. Boing Boing points us to the news that a guy quoted as part of a “man on the street” interview by China’s state-owned TV news network claimed that searching for porn online can make you absent-minded:
“I have this fellow student and he’s been curious about these kinds of things. He visited porn Web sites and ended up becoming absent-minded for a while.”
Very convincing. Apparently, lots of other people weren’t convinced by the guy’s performance, and looked into his background… and discovered that he just happens to be a student intern at the very same TV news network that was asking the questions. So, if you can’t find a man on the street to give you the answers that you want, apparently China finds someone they can coach.
