Are you a native English speaker with 10 years of media experience and desperate for a job? If so, you might want to consider joining the international arm of CCTV News because they’re hiring news editors for Dialogue, now the favourite talkshow of China’s expatriate community.
You’ll get to work up close with the show’s firebrand host, Yang Rui (杨锐), who recently reached the pinnacle of his television career by calling on the Public Security Bureau to “clean out the foreign trash” and to “arrest foreign thugs” because foreigners are coming to China to “grab our money, engage in human trafficking and spread deceitful lies to encourage emigration”.
Someone we know was recently invited to CCTV News’ so-called “Channel Entrance Exam” but has since given them a polite middle finger following the hoopla over the host’s rabid tirade against foreigners. Needless to say, we gave our friend a good dressing down for turning down the opportunity of a lifetime.
