The Death of a Hair Salon Girl – ESWN

From EastSouthWestNorth blog:

At the Media Forum of Tianya Club, the following post appeared:

[translation] Today, I walked by a news kiosk and glanced at Nanfang Weekend. My attention was suddenly attracted to it …

Everybody knows that yesterday was the big day for Shenzhou IV. Therefore, all the major media will carry the obvious headlines of the “enthusiastic praise” about our country’s magnificent accomplishments. There was no way that Nanfang Weekend would not have the words Shenzhou VI on its front page (or else it could not have gone out into the streets). Yet, I was struck by the fact that Nanfang Weekend only gave 1/4 of the front page for a photograph of Shenzhou VI (with the coverage itself appearing on page 2-3). The remaining 3/4 of the page was given to an article on the life and death of a hair salon girl.

I did not even look any more and I immediately purchased the newspaper. Just the cover alone was worth the price. I was even more astonished that Nanfang Weekend dedicated three full pages for this story (whereas Shenzhou VI only got 1-1/2 pages) for what seems to be a vulgar story. What kind of story is this?
