gao-ye-cctv-interview

China’s CCTV recently made an attempt to slam Google for allowing innocent users to search for porn and actually find it.  So they interview someone who claims to be just an innocent little university student.  This particular student had heard claims that porn would give one memory loss.  I know, we’ve all heard hairy palms and that it’s possible to go blind, but this claim is a new one to me.  Well a friend of his decided to test the theory and check out some sites for himself.  The poor guy sacrificed himself in the pursuit of knowledge, which he soon forgot about.  Alright, he may not have forgotten that, but according to the guy being interviewed he then became absent minded for a few days.

Soon after this was aired, viewers became outraged.  They felt that the student had been coached and then set themselves about hitting the internet to get to the bottom of things.  They soon discovered that what seemed to be just a student, was actually an intern at the time of the interview.  They discovered this on a Chinese social networking site called Xiaonei.com.  They then even went about publishing things about the student, Gao, like his mobile phone number, details of his instant messaging account and even finishing up by posting photos of him and his girlfriend.  Moral of the story, don’t piss off porn loving tech users.  At least make up a fake name and talk about it on the radio where your face can’t be seen.
