What is Wrong with this Xinhua News Photo with President Hu?

In June, a lot of algae appeared in Qingdao, China where the 2008 Olympics will have the sailing events.  This official Xinhua News picture of China President Hu Jintao inspecting the Olympic preparations in Qingdao is too funny. Do you see what is wrong in this photo?

Everyone come find what’s wrong with this picture~~~

Xinhua News photo of China President Hu Jintao shown to have been digitally altered or Photoshopped


Left and right are different pictures, combined to hide the non-harmonious things. However, it was combined very poorly.

It was probably because the reporter did not have any good pictures and since he could not produce any good pictures, he made this to save his job.

The bandits of the mountain are incredible.

When this is also Photoshopped, of course there will be fake South China tigers.

They learned this from CNN.

Actually, his picture has another problem too.

The white person on the very left side and the very right side is also the same person.

The government’s credibility is a complete mess.

Sigh such a stupid mistake!!!!!! The government is ruined!

Boss Hu will be pissed when he sees this online!!!!!!!

No “wu mao dang” in this topic?
None of KDS’s famous “wu mao dang” are present?

Very silly very naive?

There is no hope left for China…

I have never had any hope for China

Wait for the “wu mao dang” to come criticize you.

Once everyone plays “what is wrong with this picture?”  does each person become so excited?! Was there anything actually wrong in the news? Is this so bad like CNN’s way of distorting the facts, to their degree? Everyone finish reading before saying something.

Harmonious China is so harmonious!!

Our communist party is too funny!

Wouldn’t it have been easier to just dye the green algae blue?

Why not just create a new event on the green algae—–grass-rowing.

Here is the original news article (in case the government changes it) and all the Photoshop mistakes:

  • Too funny!

    they removed the photoshopped pic from the xinhua news article page. i’m glad the original page was saved.

    Welcome to their life “fake”.

  • tOTF

    they photoshop like they manufacture…quite poorly.

  • Gaz

    I love it how Chinese always like to point the finger at the USA/CNN/BBC etc whenever Xinhua does something wrong. Good on you, Chinese, its your country, if you want to continue to be blind and have a silent ‘cultural revolution’ and waste another 10 or 20 years thats up to you. When you work out you are a bunch of sheep living in a bubble who have wasted your lives I will be laughing at you saying “I told you so”.

  • oh,I never see that, about Tattooed Art on Humam, Chinses History was find in pass nobody knows ,There is Great History of China . customer Andrew Smith

    I see what is wrong with this picture.

    Hu Jintao isn’t eating shit in it…which shows it’s fake…because he’s a huge shit eater. He’d never be caught off camera not eating shit.

    That’s why the foreigner is laughing, because it’s really well-known overseas that every day, Boss Hu eats turds for breakfast. On national television.

    It’s true, right?

    • Joe

      well, I’ve never met brother Hu, and I don’t watch nation television…. but I do see most ‘normal’ Chinese eating shit on a daily basis… because they truly are a giant bunch of shit-eaters. And so, I find it quite likely that brother Hu set the trend, because the Chinese don’t do anything that they aren’t told to do.

      I hear shit-eating (the act of devouring long turgid foul-smelling quantities of human fecal matter) is quite a hobby in China.

      Quite the harmonious thing to do.

      Harmony. Harmony. Such harmony.

      Still… at least quietly eating shit means they are busy doing something other than lying uncontrollably to everyone they meet.

    President Hu isn’t even looking at the laowai, he appears to be distracted by something to the laowai’s left, and likewise with the laowai.
