CNN is getting punishment, will Google follow?

CNN used to be a No. 1 news provider in US since many viewers believed it was a neutral and reliable news resources. But this is gone. CNN now is a propganda machines whose reports cannot give its viewers a neutral picture about what is happening in and outside US. The best example is what it reported about the terrorist attack happened in China's Tibet on March 14, 2008. This can be found here.

Along with other western propaganda institutes, CNN's biased reports caused the angry among oversea Chinese who can access the news from both China and western world and are more familiar with China's affairs. Young Chinese students in western countries unprecedentedly walked to streets to protest the anti-China propagandas. Some Chinese even setup a website ( This website now has many readers.

CNN is now like a propaganda machines in old Soviet Union. The decrease of its market share is very predictable.

Google is now following CNN's steps. It has "sucessfully" changed its image from a tech company to a political propaganda machine. That's why it gets few supports from Chinese, even liberal Chinese, when it declared retreat from China market.

The world need neutral news media. Those media, like CNN and Google, will be punished by the market sooner or later.

Innovative: India's TATA Nano can set fire on itself

TATA auto is one of India's top auto makers. When it released the super-mini, scooter-sized Nano "car" in 2009, Indians and some western media cheered for its "innovation" and bragged for its quality and claimed it would go to US and EU market soon.

Nano is far more than innovative in calling a big scooter a car. Beyound many's imagination, Nano can creatively sets fires on itself even when it is still brand new and parked on parking lot.

In the year of its release in 2009, three of the Nano "cars" were caught in flames. More important is that all while the cars were parked when the accidents happened. Tata Motors said that the three incidents were the result of a faulty switch placed near the steering wheel, but that those problems have been fixed.

Even TATA claimed it fixed problem, A brand new Tata Nano went up in flames only minutes after it was delivered to a customer again on March 22, 2010. Satish Sawant, an insurance broker, has become the latest in a growing string of Tata Nano customers to see his new car burning in flames at the roadside, 45 minutes after he bought his "car".

So far Tata had sold 26,000 Nano "cars", but 4 of them was caught in fire! That's really a high ratio

As a main auto maker and the biggest industrial conglomerate in India, TATA's quality is still so miserable. The lesson here is: Remember that India cannot make quality products. If you want to BBQ yourself, go to buy a Nano "car".
