胡飞盘 (hú fēi pán): Frisbee Hu
Amid the fallout of the Bo Xilai scandal, Hu Xijin, editor-in-chief of the Global Times published an editorial entitled, "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, why 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 back for them.
"Frisbee Hu" is an editor that will eagerly take a positive spin on whatever facts the government throws him.
