China Voice: Why do rumors repeatedly arise in Bo Xilai incident?

(Xinhua)

11:18, April 30, 2012

BEIJING, April 29 (Xinhua) -- Wiretaps, political struggles and so-called "exclusive tip-offs" regarding the Bo Xilai incident have been reported by some foreign media in recent days.

However, people who know a little bit about China's actual conditions may find these reports quite absurd.

Generally speaking, the tip-offs in the foreign reports have something in common. They lack exact sources of information, make groundless speculations and feature critical remarks about China's political situation.

In fact, those reports made by some foreign media have been circulated long ago on some websites sponsored by the evil cult that the people despise. Isn't it a startling anecdote in international press history that rumors from cult-run websites appear in traditional media?

The truth is, as the Chinese authorities said on April 10, that the evidence uncovered so far in the investigation of the death of British national Neil Heywood indicates that he died of homicide. Bogu Kailai, wife of former Chongqing Party chief Bo Xilai, and Zhang Xiaojun, an orderly at Bo's home, are suspects in the case. Both have been transferred to judicial authorities over suspected intentional murder.

After Heywood's death and the Wang Lijun incident, the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee suspended Bo's membership in the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau and the CPC Central Committee, as he is suspected of being involved in serious discipline violations.

The case should not be interpreted as a political struggle.

The incidents are being handled under law and Party discipline. With no proper sources and a lack of knowledge regarding China's actual conditions, some foreign media bodies have failed to respect the facts and ignored their social responsibility by making groundless comments and misleading the public.

This is not the first time for foreign media to circulate rumors about China, only to find that their statements were unfounded. This time around, they will once again lose their accountability.
