This photo has been making the rounds online today, and depicts a wonderfully confident China Daily proudly declaring that the government has set ‘targets for control of pollution.’ That sounds great, until we remember that this was published nearly 25 years ago.
This photo of the April 29th, 1989 front page of the China Daily popped up on Weibo but has been gently harmonized, and is now looping through Twitter and Freeweibo.com. Oh China Daily. Too simple. Sometimes naïve.
