Chinese Social Media Is Censoring A Journalist's Dramatic Eye Roll Over Another Reporter's Question

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

A single eye roll has all of China buzzing, but to be fair it was an epic, award-worthy eye roll. China’s National People’s Congress has a history of being quite the tedious affair — so much so it is not unheard of for delegates to fall asleep. All that changed when reporter Liang Xiangyi let her feelings be known after fellow reporter Zhang Huijun asked a long and (for lack of better word) ass-kissy question.

If you want to get an idea of what Liang Xiangyi suffered through, here is a transcript of the rambling question. 

I am Zhang Huijun, the executive director of AMTV USA. My question is:
Improving the state-owned assets-management system and strengthening state-asset supervision by focusing on capital management is something that everyone is concerned about. As the commission of the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission, what are the new policies to be introduced in this area in 2018?
This year marks the 40th anniversary of 'reform and opening-up' – our country will open up further. For the 'one belt one road' initiative, state-owned enterprises will increase their investment in countries along the 'one belt, one road'. How are the overseas assets of state-owned enterprises effectively regulated to stem the outflow of capital of state-owned assets? What kind of mechanisms have been launched and how effective are the measures? Could you give us an introduction?
