This image has been making the rounds on Weibo, Beijing Cream, and even Foreign Policy; an epically terrible-even-by-the-lowest-of-standards Photoshopping job by the government of Ningguo, Anhui province. Even the People’s Daily Weibo account has joined in on the fun.
We’re no strangers to Chinese officials botching Photoshops, but we expect the propagandists to at least put in an ounce of effort. This image of giant officials (one of whom has no legs and appears to be dissolving), towering over a blurred and miniature woman, is just lazy.
We demand a higher standard of propaganda, please and thank you.
