I am, for personal reasons, suddenly interested in the political climate in China.  Amygdala has a great post  on China's reporting of Cheney's visit there.  (I was going to name this blog Amygdala, until I learned that the name was taken.)  Anyway, Gary Farber points out several discrepancies between what Cheney said, and what the Chinese news sources reported that he said.  He then points out that our own government is not entirely beyond reproach in this regard. 

His information comes from this  NYT article. 

By the way, the original news from China can be gotten here.  Choose CHINESE >> ENGLISH from the popup list.
