Some keen-eyed observers of CCTV (poor devils) spotted an unlikely sight during a recent broadcast, an advert for the Epoch Times in a US street scene. The Epoch Times is a virulently anti-CCP newspaper associated with practitioners of the banned Falun Gong religious movement / dangerous cult [delete as applicable] headquartered in New York.
Needless to say, the Epoch Times is completely banned on the Chinese mainland, and some unlucky CCTV video editor is likely in for a stern dressing-down from his superiors.
