Puzzling that People's Daily would mention the renovation of "Liberty Enlightening the World".There's no mention of evil americans with their imperialistic machinations of international domination and conquest, symbolized by their notorious symbol of barbarity.What' the point of controlling a propaganda machine, if one fails to exercise the power of the press?
