The top editor of Toronto’s Sing Tao Daily was fired after he edited out criticisms of the Chinese regime from a front-page story published during the thick of the heavily repressed protests in Tibet last year, sources have told The Epoch Times.
Wilson Chan, then managing editor at the Chinese-language Sing Tao, was let go in the fall, according to the sources, which include two staff members at Sing Tao.
It’s worth noting that Jackie Chan, who was born in colonial-era Hong Kong and has made millions of dollars as a Hollywood film star, has never lived in the sort of repressive regime that he’s advocating for his countrymen. As he proved by his comments this weekend, he obviously feels quite free to say whatever he wants.
I wonder if our action star-cum-political scientist took the time to notice the reaction his comments garnered in this part of the world. While they were widely reported on and debated by the media in Hong Kong and Taiwan, there was no mention of them in the state-controlled mainland Chinese press.
Apparently, the government in Beijing thinks that even Jackie Chan shouldn’t be free to just do what he wants.
Dio infatti ha tanto amato il mondo da
dare il Figlio unigenito perché chiunque crede
in lui non vada perduto, ma abbia la vita

mondo sia salvato per mezzo di lui. Chi crede in
lui non è condannato; ma chi non crede è già
stato condannato, perché non ha creduto nel
nome dell’unigenito Figlio di Dio.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him might not perish
but might have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world might be saved through him.
Whoever believes in him will not be condemned,
but whoever does not believe has already been condemned,
because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.God so loved the world that he gave his only Son; whoever believes in him has eternal

should not perish but have eternal life. For God sent the Son into the world, not to
condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.
