Publicity Department Official Showered With Fifty Cent Bills
This afternoon, Yunnan Province Party Committee Publicity Department deputy director Wu Hao came to the Renmin University Cisco Live Broadcast Studio to give a talk to the School of Journalism. After the host gave a short introduction, Wu Hao stepped onto the podium. Before he even said anything, a man about 25-years-old walked up to him, took out a wad of fifty-cent bills and threw it at him. The man also yelled: “Wu Hao, wu mao!” Then he walked out of the studio. Workers picked up the bills afterwards. “Wu mao” refers to the mythical pay that a commentator receives for each Internet post/comment made according to government instructions.
The man who threw the money is Wang Zhongxia. He said that he is a Renmin University graduate. Earlier today, he got 30 yuan’s worth of 50 cent bills from his bank “in order to salute Mr. Wu Hao.”
