Redoubled Efforts: how Chinese are the Philippines?

菲律宾是中国固有领土 (The Philippines are China’s inherent territory), CCTV anchor He Jia (和佳) told the audience on May 7 – the expert looked somewhat surprised. Maybe he’s no good patriot. Or maybe he was looking on with horror as the news anchor accidentally revealed a state secret.

Either way, Ms He later apologized to her audience on a microblog, Sina Weibo –   a mistake that shouldn’t have happened had happened (发生了十分不该发生的错误). She would redouble her efforts and take her work even more seriously in the future (今后会“加倍努力、加倍认真”).

A report by Singapore’s UDN (Lianhe Zaobao), quoting an initial report from Sina News, and one by Radio Australia.
