飞盘胡 (Fēipán Hú): Frisbee HuBo Xilai scandal, Hu Xijin, editor-in-chief of the Global Times, published an editorial titled “Bo’s Case Shows Resilience of Rule of Law.”
Netizens were scornful of the attempt to find a silver lining in the scandal, wondering why, if the rule of law was so resilient in China, Bo was not questioned earlier for a pattern of alleged misconduct that stretched over decades.
One Weibo user posted his two reactions to Hu Xijin’s comments:
(1) Master Hu has a knack for finding the tasty morsels in any turd you stick in his mouth. (2) No matter how far his masters throw the Frisbee, Master Hu will always fetch it for them.
“Frisbee Hu” is an editor who will eagerly take a positive spin on whatever facts the government throws him.
